Our Foundations C lessons include student readers and two chapter books. The Foundations C Readers, Miles and Jax, and Miles and Jax: Master Planners are required components for our Foundations C lessons.
About the Foundations C Readers
The Foundations C Readers are a set of eight phonetically controlled nonfiction books. The content-focused text introduces students to many science and social studies topics. The readers are scheduled in the teacher's manual as the concepts are presented in the Foundations lessons. The Foundations C Teacher's Manual provides comprehension questions to discuss with your students and activities based on the reading.
Foundations C also includes two phonetically controlled chapter books. In these chapter books, Jax, a talking meerkat, and his human friend Miles have many adventures and silly moments together. Each chapter is designed to be read after the completion of a specific lesson. Every word can be sounded out successfully using phonograms, spelling rules, and language concepts that have been previously taught in Foundations.
If you have a Foundations C Teacher's Manual from before 2018, see our article Foundations C Current Edition and Version Compatibility for how to incorporate the Miles and Jax chapter books into your lessons.
