Key Links Literacy Shared Readers act as a powerful vehicle that reinforce foundational skills and allow the rhythm of language to be caught, not taught.
Key Links Literacy Shared Readers are designed with:
- ThinkLinks™ prompts in every book for every day of the week.
- A 5-day lesson plan with a different instructional focus each day to keep whole-group instruction fresh.
- Bright, humorous illustrations.
- Rhyming, rhythmical language—students can’t help but join in!
- Repetitive, predictable text structure.
By marrying rhythmical, rhyming text with rigorous, higher-order discussion, teachers and students take shared reading time further with Key Links Literacy Shared Readers.
All authored by literacy expert and children's author, Jill Eggleon, these humorous stories and fast-paced lessons are a must-have resource for engaging, energizing, and lighting the literacy fire in Grades K-3.
Rhythmical, Musical Chunks of Language
In every Key Links Literacy Shared Reader, the rhythmical text reinforces letter-sound concepts and grade-level vocabulary. Rhythmic, rhyming, repetitive text activates the brain and creates connections for memory.
ThinkLinks™ Panels provide instructional prompts and higher-order questions that help teachers determine what to touch on lightly and what to dive into more deeply. Higher-order, thought-provoking questions are posed frequently and throughout each story.
Special illustrative texts bring the words and story to life! Key Links Literacy's expressive texts develop a sense of community in the classroom and convey a message about the joys of reading.
Disclaimer: Silly voices and wild hand gestures not included, but highly recommended.
Daily, repeated readings create confidence and provide essential reading practice.
