Hands-On Literacy

Reading Construction Toolkits

Our Reading Construction Toolkits give students hands-on comprehension and word work routines for visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners. Students are provided with a visual, concrete way to “build” each piece of the text as they comprehend and explain it, build words, and explore phonetic patterns. Reproducible graphic organizers for each skill allow students to demonstrate their understanding by writing or drawing their responses.

Differentiated Literacy Centers

Differentiated Literacy Centers streamline the planning for centers rotations while also incorporating hands-on activities designed to reach students at all levels of learning. Each grade-level kit includes teacher notes, activity cards, and manipulatives needed to complete activities for up to 4 students.

Linking letter or word cubes are a versatile tool for teachers to help build reading skills. Use these during whole group time to demonstrate the word of the day, or the daily message.
