Product Description:

The Fourth and Fifth Grade Readers are special. By this time the student is on his way to reading independently and these readers (one per grade level) provide quality information as well as practice in their stories. The Fourth Reader Singing Wheels is about life in pioneer days. In addition to the same enjoyable although less numerous illustrations, the book is full of little educational drawings of animals, equipment, etc. It is like a living museum wrapped up in a book. The Fifth Reader, Engine Whistles, contains stories that trace the development of transportation and inventions. This one also has small drawings of the components of different types of inventions such as various automobile parts (i.e. lamps or horns). Workbooks for Singing Wheels and Engine Whistles have brief teacher notes in the inside front cover but no answer keys.

(Fifth Reader) 1042 new words. Glossary in back. 383 pgs. hb.

Category Description for Alice and Jerry Basic Reading Program:

This carefully structured reading program was first published in 1957 and retains its pre-politically correct flavor. Each unit is a series of stories, with multiple units in each book. New words are introduced in the “Presentation Units.” In the “Absorption Units” that follow, students read additional stories, reviewing and reinforcing words recently presented. New vocabulary is constantly practiced and strengthened. Grade 1 starts with four Preprimers which feature short sentences, easy words, and lots of delightful nostalgic illustrations. Rebus illustrations (small drawings that substitute for words too difficult for a beginning reader) are incorporated. Grade 1 Semester 2 and Grades 2-3 (with 3 Readers each) follow a pattern. For each grade level, the first reader can be used for: vocabulary review; independent reading; to challenge average readers; or to build up proficiency. The second reader presents most of the new vocabulary. The third reader applies vocabulary to new content, staying in the reading level. The Fourth Reader, Singing Wheels, is about pioneer life. Stories in the Fifth Reader, Engine Whistles, highlight trans¬portation and inventions. Workbooks provide story recall questions, word recognition, and handwriting practice in the early grades but transition into reading skill development with some basic phonics reinforcement. TEs (where available) provide lesson plans and answers in early grades. Workbooks without TEs have some teacher instructions but no answers.

I remember this book from 5th Grade and thought a young great-nephew would also enjoy the stories about transportation in the early 20th century.

If I have mostly vintage books from this series, can I use these to fill in? Does anyone know of any differences in the original ones, the ones with "the new" in the title and these?

Best beginner reading series!
Best beginner reading series ever. We discovered this series last year! I can't understand why these are not easier to find. Who doesn't enjoy reading about times when life was more meaningful and wholesome? So glad Rainbow Resource carries the Alice and Jerry Reading Program!
