Using true-to-life facts about animals, the Hewitt Early Readers (Set I 2125, Set II 2126) provide transition from kindergarten reading skills to those of Grade One. Once the students acquire Grade-1 reading skills, they go on to the A Bee Sees Reader (2306) which has ten more stories following the pattern in the Early Readers. These readers are part of Hewitt’s A Bee Sees unit program, but may easily be used on their own.

Here I Grow Reader (1991). Written as part of the Here I Grow unit program (now entitled Tell Me A Story: Grade 1), this reader is suitable for students with both beginning and advanced Grade-1 reading skills. It can be used independent of the unit program.

Each story in the American Tales Reader (2307), for Grades 3 and 4, weaves a historical event involving a famous American, often around little-known facts. You could also use the American Tales Activity Guide (2410) to inspire your student to dig deeper into the lives of these famous people.

My First Reports
Introduce your children to expressing their knowledge in their own complete sentences. Each packet contains sheets on at least twelve different topics in one subject with questions given for directed investigation. Besides reporting skills, your children will automatically practice language and penmanship and use their library, encyclopedia, and dictionary skills. Students then create their own report and draw a picture to illustrate it.

Each packet comes with reproducible report forms with varying line heights, instructions, and activity suggestions for a unit study. Studies such as Marine Life, Plants, Wild Animals, would make great science supplements. Using one topic per week, a packet will last for more than a quarter.

You will find links to all except those about the United States at My First Reports: Set of 14 (2826).
