The Brian Add-To Collection (Grade 3 Six-Packs)

We are pleased to introduce our new SongLake Books Brian 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 Brian Collection for grade 3 include 50% non-fiction titles; repeated books by the same author/illustrator; repeated topics; lesser known fairy tales; repetition and rhyme; variety of topics; ties to content areas: science, social studies; different times and cultures; and one hard cover biography of an author along with six copies of a work by that author.  The Brian Collection also features different genres at each level offering more flexibility in choosing titles of interest for your students.  This collection is designed to augment our larger Sarah Collection.

Books in the Brian Collection span guided reading levels M-P to meet the needs of students found in a typical grade 3 classroom.  Note that Fountas & Pinnell has recently revised grade 3 to begin at level M.  The goal is to have second graders exit at a level P instructional level.

The Brian Collection contains 121 books:  one hard cover author biography and 6 copies each of 20 additional titles organized into guided reading sets 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.

As with each of our collections the Brian 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.
