Teacher's Page

 

  

LearningIsland.org has been created for teachers as well as for children. Many of the books on this site have related activity sheets and lesson plans. The lesson plans also include possible vocabulary words.

 

Teachers may use these books in a variety of ways, including:
bullet

Use the books, lesson plans, vocabulary lists, and related activity sheets to instruct students in the classroom.

bullet

Provide students with books to read.

bullet

Create a library in the classroom for students to use.

bullet

Print multiple copies of the book for group reading.

bullet

Provide books as an incentive for good behavior. This can be done by either rewarding the child with a book for good behavior, or setting up a point reward system where the kids can choose books for a certain number of points.

bullet

Provide books as an incentive for students to complete all homework or to complete their homework without any mistakes.

bullet

Use the books in the 15-Minute Series to encourage kids to read for 15 minutes a night.

 

Our 15-Minute Series

Many of our books are part of our 15-Minute Series. This is based on the idea that kids should do at least 15 minutes of reading a night. The books in this series are geared to different reading levels. Each book has been written to provide approximately 15 minutes of reading.

* The reading level of the books is indicated by a color indicator. This allows students to be grouped into a color group, rather than a reading level. This is done for those who may be learning English as a second language or for those who are reading below their normal reading level. For more specific reading level and word count information, check the RL (Reading Level) and W (Number of Words) statistics on each book's information page. Some books are written at multiple levels.
