The Diversity 1 Collection (Grade 1 Six-Packs)

SongLake Books proudly introduces our Diversity 1 set designed for guided reading.  Spotlighting diverse races, cultures, ethnicities, and lifestyles, each book portrays children underrepresented in typical classroom reading material.

This Diversity 1 set includes 144 books:  6 copies each of 24 carefully chosen titles from 9 leading companies.  Most of these titles can be found in Fountas & Pinnell's online booklist, assuring that they have been field-trialed in schools across the country.  Titles span guided reading levels D – J to meet the range of reading abilities of most first graders.  Detailed teacher guides are included for each title as well as a set of labels including title, level, and word count.

In addition we are excited to include 4 specially chosen "read-to" titles.  These beautifully written and illustrated books for the teacher to read aloud feature children facing today's challenges.  Ian has autism.  Layla wears a head scarf.  Neither Marisol MacDonald nor Sparkle Boy conform.  All are topics that appeal to curious first graders.

Diversity 1 is affordably priced with shipping charges included.  Guided reading books, teacher guides, labels, read-to titles, books from multiple companies are all provided with just one purchase order.  Now that's a time-saver!
