SECOND GRADE TO THIRD GRADE readers will read about a clever spider named Anansi who often tricks his friends with his clever tongue. In this retelling, while Anansi is trapped inside a watermelon, he tricks Possum into believing that the watermelon can talk. Possum proceeds to bring the watermelon to King Bear, who is outraged and throws the fruit, which frees Anansi when it lands and cracks open. Illustrations support the text. Discussion questions after the reading help build interest and comprehension. Learner objectives: analyze character, multiple syllable words.
The app features interactive glossary pages that encourage early readers to explore challenging words through pictures and example sentences.
Learning A–Z provides materials delivered online and through the iTunes Store that help children learn to read, write, and discover the wonders of science. All our materials are leveled so that children can access information at their reading level. Our leveled readers begin at level aa with labeling objects. In level A simple sentences are presented. With each level thereafter the sentences get more complex and the words become a little more difficult.
A QUICK GUIDE IN PLACING YOUR CHILD at the appropriate reading level is to understand that level aa to C provides average kindergarten instruction; D to J—first grade; K to Q—second grade; R to U—third grade; V to Z—fourth and fifth grade. The letters earliest in the alphabet match beginning of the year instruction while letters at the end of each grade range match skills at the end of that grade year.
THIS BOOK IS AVAILABLE AS PART OF A TWELVE-BOOK SET IN THE LEVEL O LIBRARY.
