The Jason Collection (Grade 1 Six-Packs)

We are pleased to introduce our new SongLake Books Jason 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 Jason Collection for grade 1 include more non-fiction titles; repeated characters; repeated books by the same author/illustrator; repeated topics; different versions of the same fairy tales; repetition and rhyme; variety of topics; ties to content areas: science, social studies, health, math; emotions/ethics; different times and cultures; a play to perform, and a biography of an author along with six copies of a work by that author.  The Jason Collection also features different genres at each level offering more flexibility in choosing titles of interest for your students.

Books in the Jason Collection span guided reading levels D–J to meet the varied needs of students found in a typical grade 1 classroom.  The goal is to have first graders exit at a level J instructional level.

Our Jason Collection contains 289 books:  one author biography and 6 copies each of 48 titles organized into guided reading sets 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 Jason Collection is affordably priced below retail.  This is truly a remarkable value for a well-designed collection from multiple publishers.
