Fantails are a collection of book-banded books. They have carefully controlled levels according to a students reading age. Each collection of books is set at foundation, emergent, early or fluency levels and can be used alongside other popular reading schemes. With Blue banded readers, children will be gaining more confidence in reading longer and more varied sentences, managing a greater variety of genre. They will be self-correcting more rapidly, solving new words using their understanding of the text and re-reading to enhance phrasing and clarify meanings. Books within this band have a greater variation in sentence patterns and content; stories will have more events and there will be more lines of text on a page. Includes 8 books at each band, 16 pages. Both fiction and non-fiction strands are available.
With graduated reading options in two genres, these leveled Junior Learning® fiction/nonfiction books meet the needs of readers from PK/K to the end of 2nd grade. Each leveled set contains 8 books (16 pgs each) with full color graphics (fiction) or photos (nonfiction). Levels are color coded and indicate the Guided Reading (G.R.) and the Development Reading Assessment (DRA) levels: Lilac (G.R.: A; DRA: 1-2); Pink (G.R.: A-B; DRA: 1-2); Red (G.R.: B-D; DRA: 3-6); Yellow (G.R.: C-F; DRA: 5-8); Blue (G.R.: D-H; DRA: 8-12); Green (G.R.: F-J; DRA: 12-14); Orange (G.R. H-J; DRA 16); Turquoise (G.R. I-L; DRA 18); Purple (G.R.: L-M; DRA 20); Gold (G.R. L, N; DRA 22-28. The nonfiction readers are written at the same level or just a step more difficult than the fiction. The fiction series tends to introduce vocabulary while the nonfiction series expands on topics. The Lilac books are wordless; the Pink readers have short, simple and repetitive structures with high frequency words. By the Gold level, students will predict content and handle new words in lengthy sentences. Key words (sight words) are listed in each book. No matter your reading program, these are a great addition. For additional phonetic support, add the correlating Junior Learning Decodable Readers (see description). pb ~ Ruth
