Reading can open up the world for students. But often, students don’t gain access to these literacy experiences until they’ve mastered their reading skills. Geodes® are here to change that. Geodes are the first texts for beginning readers that unite phonics with compelling content and beautiful art. With Geodes, students learn to wonder, to decode, and to know.
“I've never seen kids with this level of vocabulary, content knowledge and decoding skills.”
Great Minds® and Wilson Language Training® collaborated to create a new collection of accessible, knowledge-building books for developing readers. Following the scope and sequence of Fundations, Readables™ are a unique type of text in which specific decoding strategies are coupled with content and vocabulary knowledge, resulting in wonderfully rich books for budding readers. While most early literacy books are quite basic, Geodes are rich with research-based facts that spark curiosity about the world around them.Preview a Geode
