Tick-Tock!: Measuring Time (Penguin Young Reader Level 3)
What time is it . . . and how do you know?
This fact- and photo-filled Smithsonian Penguin Young Reader will fill you in on how people first began measuring time and why knowing "when" is important.
Time is when things happen and how long they take to happen - but how long is all that? The history of telling time is the history of inventions and communication, from hour glasses to atomic clocks, from calendars to chronometers. Tick-Tock is a fun look at the many ways different people have tried to get in sync.
Please see our Reading section for leveled reading series such as I Can Read, Step Into Reading, and many more.
Silly fairy tales, dramatic stories, interesting science facts all combined with charming illustrations by various artists will make your early readers want to get each and every one of these books! Readers grow as their skills develop and these books are right there with them giving them the challenges they need at each level. Younger readers figure out new words from picture and context clues while they begin to recognize fiction from non-fiction. Maturing readers can understand different points of view and identify story elements like characters and conflict. Use the levels to correlate to your student's grade to start. As they master each series, they will see their progress when moving up to the next level. Inside each cover are activity ideas such as asking your child to compare and contrast or make predictions from looking at the pictures. You could create some spelling practice or grammar lessons based on the stories or let the kids make a journal about their reading (likes, dislikes, new words, places they want to visit someday, etc). 32-47pgs each, pb. ~ Sara
