For Shared Reading

For Small Group Instruction
Flying Start to Literacy™ and Despegando hacia la lectura®, spreading across nine developmental reading stages—from Early Emergent to Advanced Fluent—more than 300 paired texts in each language work as paired texts are meant to work, with one text enhancing understanding of the other.

For Content-based Literacy
Develop content literacy in two languages with WorldWise: Content-based Learning™ and ExploraMundos™, essential resources fully aligned with Next Generation Science Standards and C3 Social Studies Outcomes.

Teaching for Language Connections
