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.
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 Jump Into Genre 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.
