NEW Follett Classroom Libraries offer the widest selection of engaging titles from trusted publishers. Perfect for whole- or small-group instruction, each library is carefully created by our in-house team of K-12 educators with grade and age level-appropriate high-interest nonfiction and fiction texts to engage all students.
These titles provide instructional support to encourage engagement and participation in reading through authentic fiction and nonfiction. Each mentor text is paired with a lesson plan supporting grade level-appropriate standards and includes a reproducible Home/School Connection to promote reading outside of school.
The texts in these bundles come in sets of six and are leveled by Fountas and Pinnell (F&P) or Guided Reading Level (GRL). Guided reading texts supplement the national standards and can stand alone or complement specific mentor texts.
Curated to support student choice and literacy, independent reading texts are paired to specific disciplines and can stand alone or complement specific mentor and guided-reading texts.
All mentor texts include a reproducible Home/School Connection to promote reading outside of school.
Supplement your science curriculum by adding engaging classroom texts, lesson plans and Home/School Connections supporting core disciplinary ideas and standards. This diverse cross-curricular supplemental resource activates students’ natural curiosities and challenges their misconceptions about the world by engaging them with high-interest mentor, guided and independent reading texts.
