The Nathan Collection (Kindergarten Six-Packs)

We are pleased to introduce our new SongLake Books Nathan 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 Nathan Collection for kindergarten include 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; family and community; different times and cultures; as well as a play to perform.  The Nathan Collection also features different genres at each level offering more flexibility in choosing titles of interest for your students.

Books in the Nathan Collection span guided reading levels A–D to meet the varied needs of students found in a typical kindergarten classroom.  Note that Fountas & Pinnell have recently revised kindergarten to include level D.  The goal is to have kindergarteners exit this grade at a level D instructional level.

The Nathan Collection contains 288 books: 6 copies each of 48 titles organized into guided reading sets for classrooms, Title I, and new federal programs such as RTI, i3, et al.  They are also ideal for bookrooms.

Most titles included in this collection can be found in Fountas & 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 Nathan Collection is affordably priced below retail with no additional shipping or handling charges.  This is truly a remarkable value for a well-designed collection from multiple publishers.
