The Bessie Add-To Collection (Kindergarten Six-Packs)
We are pleased to introduce our new SongLake Books Bessie Collection. Recognizing that many schools are struggling to meet the demands of the Common Core State Standards, we have scrutinized hundreds of books from approved publishers and hand-selected only those that best align themselves with these standards.
Features of our Bessie Collection for grade K include more non-fiction titles; books by the same author/illustrator; repeated topics; popular fairy tales; repetition and rhyme; variety of topics; ties to content areas: science, social studies, math; feelings. The Bessie Collection also features different genres offering more flexibility in choosing titles of interest for your students. This collection is designed to augment our larger Nathan Collection.
Books in the Bessie Collection span guided reading levels A-D to meet the needs of students found in a typical kindergarten classroom. Note that Fountas & Pinnell has recently revised kindergarten by adding level D. The goal is to have kindergarteners exit at a level D instructional level.
The Bessie Collection contains 144 books: 6 copies each of 24 titles organized into a guided reading set with 6 different titles per level. It is designed for classrooms, Title I, and new federal programs such as RTI, i3, et al. It is also ideal for bookrooms.
Most titles included in this collection can be found in Fountas & Pinnell's Booklist now found online. Each collection comes with two lists. One list is arranged by levels. The other list is arranged alphabetically. Word counts are included to assist in book selection and scoring of running records.
As with each of our collections the Bessie Collection is affordably priced below retail with no additional shipping or handling charges. This is truly a remarkable value for a well-designed collection from multiple publishers.
