Suggested literacy lab products for each grade


An effective classroom literacy lab must meet the needs of all students, covering a wide range of applicable skills (phonics, vocabulary, comprehension, language) and instructional levels. The following are grade-level suggestions for suitable Reading Manipulatives products. All categories of CCSS ELA skills are included. As you can see, the materials repeat in various grades, and often grades may have more than one ability level. These comprehensive sets of skill-development activities could be repeated by students during one year or over several years. They would continue to hone their skills. Children are motivated by choice, challenge, success, and social interaction, and Reading Manipulatives products provide all of these.

Student motivation is crucial to advancing skills, and engagement is necessary to sustain literacy activities. Research tells us that children are motivated by choice, challenge, success, and social interaction. Reading Manipulatives products provide all of these. A classroom literacy lab stocked with complete sets of Reading Manipulatives materials assures that students of all abilities in a classroom learn needed skills.

These individualized activities are the type of systematic and explicit instruction that the literacy community advocates. Each product has enough sets to cover the full range of skills. Multi-levels are available allowing proper placement of every student without the stigma often attached to remedial products. CCSS states that students advancing through the grades are expected to meet each year’s grade-specific standards and retain or further develop skills and understandings mastered in preceding grades. A well-stocked literacy lab can make this goal manageable, allowing every child to work at the correct instructional level as skills are developed.
