Pair-It Twin Text Take Home Packs

Pair-It! Twin Text 
Take Home Packs Are Here! 

Our Take Home Packs include a set of our Pair-It! Twin Texts in a clear plastic tote. Each book contains a QR code that gives the child and educator access to a brand-new and exciting learning activity guide! These guides bridge concepts between the 2 books and are created specifically for our Pair-It! books by a professional educator.

Pair-It! Twin Texts match our non-fiction Read and Discover books with our fictional Dear Dragon titles that focus on the same concept. The "Twin Texts" support the balance of reading nonfiction and fiction which is an integral goal of the Common Core State Standards. Books range in reading levels from PK-2.
Research cites that twin texts help encourage the enjoyment of reading while capitalizing on students' fascination with facts. Educators can begin by reading the nonfiction book to build background, which helps support comprehension of the related fiction. Alternately, starting with the fiction, you can spark your child's interest and expand his or her knowledge of the topic with the nonfiction text.

14 sets are available now!
