Get Ready to Read! Overview - FamilyEducation.com

Get Ready to Read! Overview - FamilyEducation.com | HCS Language Arts | Scoop.it
The Get Ready to Read! screening tool will show whether your child's pre-reading skills are weak, strong, or somewhere in between. Activities and resources are provided to improve reading skills.
HCS Learning Commons's insight:

Get Ready To Read 
This tool is designed to screen a child twice during the year before kindergarten. Use the tool first in the fall one year before your child enters kindergarten, and again the next fall before kindergarten begins, to measure the child's progress. Don't use the tool more than three times in a year. It's not designed to measure small changes, and children develop new skills gradually. FamilyEducation.com

Database of Award-Winning Children's Literature

Database of Award-Winning Children's Literature | HCS Language Arts | Scoop.it
Create a tailored list of quality children's books based on your criteria such as ethnicity, gender, period, location, and others, or view lists of seventy-eight (78) English-language children's literature awards and their winners.
HCS Learning Commons's insight:

The purpose of this database is to create a tailored reading list of quality children's literature or to find out if a book has won one of the indexed awards. I expect the user to be a librarian or a teacher intervening for a child-reader, however anyone may make use of it to find the best in children's literature including parents, book store personnel, and children and young adults themselves.

Hi-Lo Books for Reluctant Readers

Hi-Lo Books for Reluctant Readers | HCS Language Arts | Scoop.it
Hi-lo books are for reluctant readers who are not reading on grade level and who are not interested in books at their reading level.
HCS Learning Commons's insight:

If you have kids or teens who are reluctant readers because they read below grade level and can’t find books they can read that interest them, try some of these hi-lo books. The books are at the reader's interest level (“hi” stands for “high interest”) but written at a lower reading level (“lo” stands for “low readability”) to encourage reading. Kids and teens reading below grade level are more apt to want to read a book if it is not only at their reading level but also at their interest level. These books are also known as high interest / low vocabulary books and high interest / lower reading level books. From About.com
