How is the Storytime part of the plans in Beyond Little Hearts for His Glory used throughout the year?

(From the Introduction of Beyond Little Hearts for His Glory):

Storytime
Daily storytime sessions are based on literature that is read aloud from the
following nine genres: Biography, Adventure, Historical Fiction, Fantasy,
Mystery, Nonfiction, Humor, Realistic Fiction, and Folk Tale. Each type of
literature is read aloud for 20 days, except for Folk Tale which is read aloud
for 10 days.

The instructions and activities are written to be used with any literature.
This flexibility allows you to use your own discretion in selecting literature to read aloud to your students. The structure also allows you to select the
pace at which you’ll complete your read aloud selection.

Each 5 day unit in the guide includes the following reading activities in coordination with the read-aloud assignments:
*1st Day: introduce and study different types of literature
*2nd Day: model narration to foster comprehension
*3rd Day: identify and analyze a different story element for each genre
*4th Day: relate personally to one Godly character trait, compare
Biblical and book characters, and select one area to improve
*5th Day: practice narration by retelling the story in a variety of ways

Use coupon code MAY-LIBRARY for 10% off both variants of the Emerging Reader set!

We are excited to continue our Heart of Dakota Library Builder book set promotion! On the 1st Wednesday of each month we will be promoting one of our book sets with a 10% coupon code. For this month’s special, use coupon code MAY-LIBRARY on our website for the entire month of May to save 10% on both variants of the Emerging Reader set. To view all of the books in this set, just click here!

How does the Emerging Reader set work?

The only difference between the two sets is the Bible. The Early Reader’s Bible is a little bit easier for your child to read than the Beginner’s Bible.

Regardless of which Bible you choose, these books will be a great resource for your beginning reader! We suggest that this set of books be used right after phonics instruction. Since each book in this set gets progressively more difficult to read, the strength of your child’s reading ability will be constantly moving forward to that of an independent reader. Just follow the Scheduled Books for Emerging Readers found in the Appendix of Beyond Little Hearts for His Glory and in the Appendix of Bigger Hearts for His Glory. The schedule listed in the Appendix has been carefully planned to utilize interesting books that gradually increase in reading difficulty throughout the year.

How is the Level 6/7 Book Pack used in Drawn into the Heart of Reading?

(From the package description in our online store):

This optional book pack is for use with Level 6/7/8 of Drawn into the Heart of Reading. In this level, your child will read the chosen books mainly independently for a total of 15 days for each genre. Each book on the list below has an approximate reading level noting the grade and month next to it. Use this information to choose the set that best suits your child’s reading level. Another option for this reading level, beside the one shown below, would be to use the Girl Interest or Boy Interest set from Creation to Christ. While these sets are meant to read-alouds, since they contain one or more books from each of the nine genres, they will also work with Drawn into the Heart of Reading. NOTE: This option will only work if you do not plan to use these book sets as read-alouds when using Creation to Christ.

If these books seem too difficult, we also have book packs for Levels 5/6 Girl Interest and Level 5/6 Boy Interest. If these books seem too easy, you may choose your own books, or off our Sample Book Ideas List. Please keep in mind, these specific titles are not needed, but each book was very carefully chosen as an excellent reading selection for the noted reading level.

Our book sets were created to save you time and to help you find quality books at the right reading level. This is one of the keys to a successful reading experience for your child.
