This article is in collaboration with Academic Success for All Learners.
Academic Success for All Learners is a company dedicated to reading success. After much research, revision and field testing, the “Little Books” which form the basis for this company’s beginning reading program, have proven to be highly successful and quite enjoyable for the children using them. You can view examples of many such successes on their iseesamdotcom You Tube channel. The Reading for All Learners “Little Books” program is a sequence of 141 color coded books.
There are 8 sets of books from Kindergarten to 3.6 reading level. Each set contains up to 27 books. You may have heard them referred to as the “I See Sam” books. The easy-to-use format and low cost makes them a great beginning reading program for everyone. The students enjoy the fun characters, group interaction, reward certificates, and coloring sheets. They can be easily taught by not only teachers and parents, but peers and siblings as well.
