The Edward Collection (Kindergarten Single Copies)

We are pleased to introduce our new SongLake Books Edward 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 Edward Collection for kindergarten include more non-fiction titles; repeated characters; repeated books by the same author/illustrator; repeated topics; popular fairy tales; repetition and rhyme; variety of topics; ties to content areas: science, social studies, health (feelings), math; different times and cultures.  The Edward Collection also features different genres at each level offering more flexibility in choosing titles of interest for your students.  This collection consists of one copy each of titles found in both our Nathan Collection and our Bessie Collection.

Books in the Edward Collection span guided reading levels A–D to meet the needs of students found in a typical kindergarten classroom.  The goal is to have kindergartners exit at a level D instructional level.

Our Edward Collection contains 72 books:  1 copy each of 72 titles or 18 books per level.  It is ideal for classrooms, Title I/ESEA, and new federal programs such as ESSA, et al.  It is also ideal for bookrooms.

Most titles included in this collection can be found in Fountas and 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 Edward Collection is affordably priced below retail.  This is truly a remarkable value for a well-designed collection from multiple publishers.
