2023-2024 Reading Content for Each Level
Each school year, Portals selects books that introduce themes and ideas for all ages - so all of your students are talking about the same ideas. Books are selected for different reading levels around the theme for the year. Book lists rotate through a three year cycle highlighting American History, Ancient World History, and Modern World History.
Founders texts are selected to be read aloud by the teacher or parent. They compliment the process of learning to read while providing exposure to heroes, values, and discussion points for you and your child. Texts are also selected for humor and delight, so as you read together you are swept away.
Growers texts are selected to give new readers a chance to build on their skills using full narratives and develop a sense of key events. Some book are to be read-aloud to sustain a diet of more challenging content, while others are practice for the students to build reading skills. Some will be more or less challenging based on development - all of them will complement the subject area studies.
