The Essentials Reader:
Readings to Accompany Logic of English Essentials
Engage the interest and build the confidence of older struggling readers!
Thirty high-interest passages controlled for the phonics and language concepts students are learning in Essentials. When combined with Essentials, students are able to successfully sound out every word, with no sight words or guessing, thereby building fluency and confidence. Combined with the Essentials Reader Teacher's Guide and Student Activity Book, The Essentials Reader may be used as a complete reading comprehension and composition program for upper elementary grades or struggling readers of any age.
These texts are designed with the older student in mind. While many early readers appear "babyish" to an older student, The Essentials Reader engages students with topics such as sports, history, science, and inspiring biographies. In addition, The Essentials Reader supports students in developing fluency with the tools they are learning in Essentials, teaches academic vocabulary, and when combined with the Essentials Reader Teacher's Guide develops comprehension skills.
