Key Links Literacy

key links literacy

Every classroom has good readers: students who decode words and recall what they read. But with new standards and increased expectations, being a good reader is simply not good enough. 

Because active participation is a key component for learning, Key Links Literacy provides authentically written texts with opportunities for higher-order thinking and peer conversations. Key Links Literacy gets students talking!

Designed with:

  • Fast-paced, entertaining fiction and nonfiction texts, written by esteemed author and educator, Jill Eggleton.
  • ThinkLinks Panels™ in every Shared, Guided, and Peer Reader that guide teachers to the most important parts of instruction.
  • Benchmark Cards and Assessment materials that help teachers administer, score, and evaluate literacy achievement.

How it works

Times have changed. Even though expectations continue to evolve, balanced literacy resources have largely stayed the same—until now. Key Links Literacy provides instruction in four critical areas for optimal growth in reading. It’s targeted, daily, predictable instruction for whole group, small group, peer-to-peer, and independent reading.

Shared Reading

Shared Readers act as a powerful vehicle for the rhythm of language and words to be caught, not taught—bright fiction texts that convey the joy of reading.

Guided Readers teach students important skills for thinking critically and carefully when they read—skills like fluency, higher-order thinking, and collaboration—and not just during group time, but for a lifetime.
