Non-Fiction High Interest Readers from Carson Dellosa!

I got a nice little surprise in the mail this week, BOOKS!! I LOVE books!! I have spent a small fortune trying to collect books that I feel will be of interest to my particular group of students and it's not always easy to find good non-fiction books that struggling readers love. These new books from Carson Dellosa are right up my alley!
They come in three levels, and cover a variety of subjects (not just animals!!) I have a lot of awesome animal non-fiction books but it can be difficult to find books about other topics! Carson Dellosa has a whole list of titles to choose from!
This one about space is a level three, it has amazing pictures with great details and includes little facts highlighted throughout the book. It's not to easy but it's not overwhelming. I found it to be a really good fit for my struggling 5th and 6th graders.

Level 2 is a little easier as you can see and the other details such as fun facts are left out so the students are distracted by them. My students are also enjoying these because look at those cool photographs, he looks like he's coming off the page at you!!

 Level one is obviously short on words, my second graders read these very well. We are continuing to work on fluency and adding some non-fiction to the mix was great! Again AMAZING pictures and well laid out.

    1. Amy we agree books make great gifts! These are only $3.99 per book which is pretty good. And there are plenty of titles like Snakes and Creepy Crawlers and Intense Machines that both boys and girls will find interesting. Thanks!

  2. Amy - Thank you so much for sharing the new Spectrum Readers with your readers! We hope you and your students enjoy them.
    Have an awesome day!
