The nonfiction Foundations D Readers and the Foundations D - Children's Literature Set are required components for our Foundations D lessons. Many of the fiction books in the literature set are paired with a nonfiction text on the same topic to help students explore genres and build background knowledge.
In Foundations D, reading comprehension using real children's literature becomes a primary focus. Students will read one of the trade books included in the literature set during their Foundations D lessons and complete various activities and games related to the story.
What to Order
The Foundations D - Children's Literature Set is available for purchase from the Logic of English® webstore. If you only need select titles, the literature books are also available for purchase individually.
