The Matthew Collection (Grade 4 Six-Packs)
We are pleased to introduce our new SongLake Books Matthew 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 Matthew Collection for grade 4 include: repeated books by the same author/illustrator; repeated topics; Chinese version of popular fairy tale; greater variety of topics; ties to content areas: science, social studies, health; different times and cultures; mature themes such as homelessness, war, slavery, prejudice, immigration, morality. The Matthew Collection also features different genres at each level offering more flexibility in choosing titles of interest for your students.
Books in the Matthew Collection span guided reading levels P–S to meet the needs of a typical grade 4 classroom. The goal is to have fourth graders exit this grade at a level S instructional level.
Our Matthew Collection contains 241 books: one biography and 6 copies of a work by that author as well as 6 copies each of 40 additional titles. This guided reading set 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 Matthew Collection is affordably priced below retail. This is truly a remarkable value for a well-designed collection from multiple publishers.
