The Sarah Collection (Grade 3 Six-Packs)

We are pleased to introduce our new SongLake Books Sarah 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 Sarah Collection for grade 3 include repeated characters; repeated books by the same author/illustrator; repeated topics; less familiar fairy tales; greater variety of topics; ties to content areas: science, social studies, health; different times and cultures; more mature themes as poverty, fear, prejudice.  The Sarah Collection also features different genres at each level offering more flexibility in choosing titles of interest for your students.

Books in the Sarah Collection span guided reading levels M–P to meet the needs of students found in a typical grade 3 classroom.  Note that Fountas and Pinnell have recently revised grade 3 to include these four levels.  The goal is to have third graders exit this grade at a level P instructional level.

Our Sarah Collection contains 241 books:  6 copies each of 40 titles plus 1 copy of Grace Lin, illustrator of The Seven Chinese Sisters.  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 Sarah Collection is affordably priced below retail.  This is truly a remarkable value for a well-designed collection from multiple publishers.
