The Jackson Collection (Grade 2 Single Copies)

We are pleased to introduce our new SongLake Books Jackson 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 Jackson Collection for grade 2 include repeated characters; repeated books by the same author/illustrator; repeated topics; different versions of the same fairy tales; greater variety of topics; ties to content areas: science, social studies, health, math; family and community; different times and cultures; as well as a play to perform.  The Jackson Collection also features different genres at each level offering more flexibility in choosing titles of interest for your students.

Books in the Jackson Collection span guided reading levels J–M to meet the needs of students found in a typical grade 2 classroom.  The goal is to have second graders exit this grade at a level M instructional level.

Our Jackson Collection contains 65 books including 1 author biography as well as two works by that author.  It is comprised of one copy of each title in both our Karen Collection and James Collection.  The Jackson Collection is designed 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.

As with each of our collections the Jackson Collection is affordably priced below retail.  This is truly a remarkable value for a well-designed collection from multiple publishers.
