By using familiar texts and common themes, students become more comfortable with reading on their own. Each concept is introduced by the teacher using Big Books, and students proceed to reading small books on their own or in a small group.
Each Triple Treat Trio comes with Writing Books that remind students about the concepts they covered in their readings. They are able to write their own story, keeping with the theme of the trio. Word lists are provided in each Writing Book to help guide students.
