Newmark Early Readers

Ever since I first read Newmark Learning’s books for early readers, I’ve been a fan. I’m equally impressed with their newest series, Jump Into Genre for grades 2 – 3. It’s quality, engaging reading material in different genres.Newmark early readers

In the widely adopted Common Core Standards, the following genres are required for students: Tall Tales, Fables, Fairy Tales, Pourquoi Tales, Trickster Tales, and Myths and Legends. All of which are included in the 2 set, 24 book Newmark Jump Into Genre early reader series.

Oh, about Common Core . . . sigh. Read my initial thoughts here and my acceptance of reality here, both on Class Notes. (I dislike them for very specific reasons. I don’t dislike standards in general, just these ones.)

Each book is 16 pages long with a nice text to picture balance. (My pet peeve when done poorly.)

The front and back cover include ways for parents and teachers to extend the learning.

    We do our best to read them all. I tend to like historical and realistic fiction for myself but my 6 year old has been really enjoying the Greek Myths lately.

    I prefer novels, historical fiction, local fiction. My son loves pretty much everything though we haven’t done a lot of poetry reading yet.

  3. chris says

    We read everything we can get our hands on. My 3 year old loves it all and my 13 year old goes through so many books a day I no longer can keep track. If it’s in print we read it!

  4. Melissa B says

    We love fairy tales and other similar genres, like tall tales. We are starting on fantasty (The Hobbitt). So much to explore!

    my little one reads a lot of fiction, especially princesses and fairies, but she is also really into non-fiction titles on topics like space, marine biology and some history

  6. Windy Mitchell says

    My 4 year old is fascinated with how the body works, dinosaurs, sharks, insects and other animals. But he also enjoys Mercer Mayer’s Little Critter books.

    We don’t settle on a certain genre…We try to be exposed to all but seems non-fiction is preferred by one and fairy tales by the others.
