Expose students to different genres and text types with books that will engage reluctant readers and provide the motivation to read more. Graphic Books present informational text in a visually engaging and entertaining format, while the Comic and Humor Books use the comic strip format and photos with humorous captions to provide students with a fun reading experience.
Core and national standards call for students to read different text types and genres.
Graphic Books provide an interesting and exciting way to present informational text to students. The association with the Reading A-Z nonfiction Leveled Books allows readers to make connections across texts on similar topics. Graphic Books appeal to visual learners as well as struggling and reluctant readers.
Comic & Humor Books expose readers to text features they may not usually encounter, such as speech bubbles or tightly connected pictures and text. Jokes, riddles, and cartoons introduce students to structured forms of humor, such as word play, situational humor, physical humor, and character humor.
Graphic books present the information and topics from Reading A-Z's nonfiction Leveled Books in a different text type. Use them before reading the related Leveled Book as an introduction to the text, or after reading to expand upon the topic. The Cross-Text Lesson that accompanies each Graphic Book gives suggestions for how to do both. Graphic Books can also be used for independent practice for all readers.
Our Comic Books star favorite characters like the Monsters, and introduces new characters like the Scarecrows, and fit in the palm of a child's hand. Use them to teach left to right print tracking, dialogue, and humor.
Humor books can help you teach critical skills such as making inferences, determining author's purpose, problem solving, understanding associations among ideas, and mastering language rules and how they can be broken to make fun. Students can also use Wordless versions of some of the books to write their own jokes and riddles.
