Real World Connections Bins


Real World Connections Bins

Our Real World Connections bins are just what we say they are... a way for students to learn and connect to the real world preparing them for college and beyond. These bins were created to assist in building content knowledge required in today's classroom in all 50 states. 

Our books are created to align to CCSS, NGSS, WiDA, TEKS, and other non-CCSS states. Our titles are all leveled and packaged to accommodate both the struggling and fluent readers in your classroom. If you have a nonfiction or fiction bookroom, these titles are packaged to be portable and easily shared.

Supporting parent and student connections through learning is an important aspect of school success. Most of the books in the collections have Tips for Parents in the books and all of the Teacher's Resources include Parent Student Connection letters and activities.

To provide teachers the teaching strategies they need to effectively use the collections, the Teacher's Resource gives strategies that support State and National Standards for small group, whole group, and independent learning settings.

As a support for Guided Reading, each title in the collection has a Guided Reading Teacher Note. The Teacher Note includes basic book information, 100th word, correlated standards, suggested lesson focuses, a lesson, and a reproducible for after reading.
