TARGETED INSTRUCTION & LITERACY GROWTH Rosen-LightSail brings to students the best high-interest and curriculum-aligned titles, complete with embedded formative assessments that engage students and adapt their reading experience to build stamina and ensure growth. In-text formative assessments allow continuous progress monitoring in real time and provide information essential to schools’ data-driven, results-oriented commitment to individual student achievement.

EMBEDDED CLOZE ASSESSMENTS Rosen-LightSail provides students an authentic reading experience while also collecting data through embedded Cloze (fill-in-the-blank) assessments. Cloze assessments allow monitoring of a student’s Lexile® measure, helping identify where that student is on the spectrum of reading comprehension.

MULTIPLE CHOICE & SHORT ANSWER RESPONSE In addition to Cloze assessments, multiple choice and short answer response assessments provide teachers with additional insight into students’ reading comprehension abilities. Multiple choice assessments are graded automatically, and teachers can view student progress categorized by standards on the Reports page. Short answer response questions are graded by teachers using blind grading.

Rubrics Rosen-LightSail provides teachers with exemplar-based rubrics and rationales in order to facilitate grading and provide students with quality, actionable feedback. The tool helps teachers choose from a bank of rubric templates to assess students’ short response questions and fluency recordings. Teachers can also edit a template to make it their own.

Rosen Classroom believes that blending content into the English language arts and the reading block allows students not only to work on their reading, writing, and word study skills, but also provides them the necessary content for their other academic studies. As emphasized in educational standards, the acquisition of knowledge and skills is strengthened by the application of language skills through a variety of content. Quality content stimulates inquiry, conceptual understanding, content-specific vocabulary, and independent thinking.

Guided reading instruction is an essential component of the literacy block for schools today. In order for guided reading to be successful, teachers must have access to a variety of text from various genres and at all reading levels to meet the needs of the students they serve. The Rosen Leveled Bookroom not only provides the text students need, but also the resources teachers must have to be successful with guided reading instruction.

We specialize in high-quality, high-interest, leveled, standards-aligned content. When these resources are combined with the foundational skills of reading, writing, and word study, this literacy approach increases comprehension of the content and the fluency of the reader. Teachers can differentiate learning using leveled texts and accompanying resources through a variety of instructional models, including guided reading, work stations or centers, small group instruction, inquiry-based learning, and more. As students build comprehension and fluency, they are then able to use the process skills of Listening, Discussing, Collaborating, Critical Thinking, Researching, and Presenting to become not just consumers of information, but creators!

Teaching Social and Emotional Skills The Focus on Social and Emotional Learning program is intended for flexible implementation across 30 weeks of instruction in the school year. CASEL’s five (5) competencies provide the framework for each grade level’s books and lesson plans. Each competency is “kicked off” with an introductory lesson plan that showcases the concept and hooks the student into learning more about it. Each of the competencies is then broken down into CASEL’s suggested four to six (4–6) subcategories of skills and knowledge for student learning. In each of these subcategories, one (1) weekly lesson plan has been provided. For each lesson plan, one to two (1–2) age-appropriate fiction and/or nonfiction books have been provided to serve as the literacy anchor for the SEL skill. The lessons are 20–30 minutes in length. They have a modular design in “chunks” that can be pulled apart and implemented flexibly according to the needs of the students and teacher.

The term “social emotional learning” was coined at a meeting of educators, scholars, and child care stakeholders held at the Fetzer Institute in 1994, out of a concern for the lack of coordination among the multiple social health school programs of the time. From that meeting also emerged The Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning (CASEL), whose work deeply informs our lessons. Since that meeting, two decades of research on SEL have proven both its short-term and longterm benefits for our youth.

CASEL defines five interrelated competencies, or domains, of social emotional learning SELF-AWARENESS SELF-MANAGEMENT SOCIAL AWARENESS RELATIONSHIP SKILLS RESPONSIBLE DECISION-MAKING Self-awareness (Weeks 1-6)

Self-awareness is the degree to which a child knows her inner world: her hopes, dreams, fears, and goals; her strengths and challenges; and how her feelings and thoughts influence her actions. Self-management is the set of skills and attitudes required in order for a child to manage his emotions, meet challenges, and set his sights on an outcome. Social awareness involves the ability of a child to feel empathy for others, to take the perspective of someone other than herself, and understand social norms in a given situation. Relationship skills provide a child with the means to live and work fruitfully with others by communicating effectively, working collaboratively, and negotiating conflict. Responsible decision-making requires a child to be able to accurately assess the consequences of his actions, and to take safety, ethics, and the health of himself and others into account when making decisions. Self-management (Weeks 7-13)

Social awareness (Weeks 14-18)

Relationship skills (Weeks 19-23)

Responsible decision-making (Weeks 24-30)

Content of a typical SEL lesson plan We employ the activities of thinking, reading, speaking, and writing in each lesson, which allows students to master and apply the content through multiple access points. Essential Questions: Essential questions encourage deep thinking and are central to social and emotional learning. Students demonstrate their knowledge by answering these questions and related “I can” statement that serves as the learning target for the lesson. Focus Activities: The focus activity provides a quick, yet thorough dive into the main social and emotional learning concept. Writing Prompts: The writing prompts serve as a method by which students can apply the targeted SEL concept to their own contexts and lives.

Extension Activities: Extension activities are a series of suggestions for deepening and broadening student interactions with the SEL concepts through multiple methods of engagement and differentiation. Each lesson will have four extension suggestions: • To Reinforce: to give extra practice in the SEL concept • To Accelerate: to increase learning for those who have mastered the SEL concept • School/Home Connection: to share the SEL concept with the family of the student • Classroom Management Connection: to strengthen classroom management via incorporation of the SEL concept

Rosen Phonics Readers Grades Pre K–2 (A–D)

Rosen Phonics Readers is a complete and comprehensive classroom program created with both quality of instruction and economy of time in mind. Rosen Phonics Readers provide authenticity in linguistic context to contribute to a complete learning experience for students, while also providing educators with an easy go-to program for either primary or supplemental use. Phonics is the method of teaching children to “sound out”, or decode, words. Children learn to recognize each of the phonemes in the English language and their associated graphemes, and how those sounds and letters combine to form whole words. Phonics therefore can be seen as a set of rules about letter-sound correspondences that readers must learn to recognize and use automatically. Phonics as a method of teaching English has been subject to some valid criticisms in the past. The Rosen Phonics Readers program is designed to address those criticisms, most importantly the authenticity of instructional materials. The best educational experiences are authentic—­those that place the skills, rules, or ideas being taught in real context. To be most successful, beginning readers need the opportunity to immediately place phonics rules in context of real, relatable stories. Each Rosen Phonics Reader does just that, providing essential explicit phonics instruction with the benefits of embedded phonics (the Whole Language approach). Concise and easy-to-reference suggestions for whole class and small group instruction are included in the back of each book. All readers are also leveled using Fountas and Pinnell levels (A-D), for easy integration into any Guided Reading or literacy intervention program. Educators can thus differentiate instruction and implement the program in the way they feel best benefits their unique learners or classrooms.

COMPUTER SCIENCE FOR THE REAL WORLDTM is a new program created specifically to embed core concepts and core practices from the new K-12 CS Framework into high-interest nonfiction and fiction leveled texts that deal with mandated grade-appropriate subjects in science and social studies. The subtitle of each title indicates the concept or practice from the K-12 CS Framework and ISTE Curriculum made accessible to the target audience. The back cover indicates the GRL as well as the exact concept or practice from the Framework.

AMONG THE CORE CONCEPTS COVERED ARE: • Computing Systems

• Data and Analysis

• Networks and the Internet

• Algorithms and Programming

• Impacts of Computing

AMONG THE CORE PRACTICES COVERED ARE: •

Fostering an Inclusive Computing Culture

Choose an object in your classroom or from your desk that is of interest or that the students would consider a novelty. Perhaps grab a magnifying glass and a stone, a magnet wand and some paper clips, bubbles, a spinning top, or a special rubber bouncy ball. Talk the item up so that everyone will want to use it. Ask the students to raise a hand if they want to see it for themselves. Restate that there is only one item. Ask them to come up with a sharing plan so that everyone may see it. Have the students execute their plan. If the plan goes awry, sit the students back down and take the object back. Ask them, “How can we share this better?” Try the sharing plan again if necessary.

Background Knowledge Civic virtues are ways of acting like a good citizen. Students can practice acting like a good citizen in school, in their communities, and even in their government. They can share, act fairly toward others, and show respect. Remind students that civic virtues are familiar to them and can be used in daily life. In this book, classmates act like good citizens by sharing one tablet with the entire class. Ask students to remember a time when they had to share one thing between everyone in class. What were the challenges of sharing? How is sharing helpful?

Independent Activity Tell your students to practice sharing today. Ask them to think about when they can share at recess, playtime, or free time. Ask the students to draw a picture of them sharing something.

They can share, act fairly toward others, and show respect. Remind students that civic virtues are familiar to them and can be used in daily life. In this book, the narrator acts like a good citizen by sharing what she has with others. Ask students to remember a time when they noticed that someone didn’t have something they needed at lunch, during recess, or in class. What could they have done to make the situation better?

Independent Activity Have students draw a picture of a sharing experience. Have them indicate in their drawing the friendship that comes from sharing, perhaps by emphasizing big smiles. As an extension, they may share their picture and experience with the class.

AMAZING ANIMALS Multiplying Multidigit Numbers by One-Digit Numbers with Regrouping Orli Zuravicky

Activity: Have students work in pairs. Ask each student to create problems involving multiplication of multidigit numbers by one-digit numbers and write the problems on a sheet of paper without the solutions. Students should then trade problem sets with their partner. Before solving the problems, students should make an estimate and write it down, along with an explanation. Have students solve their problems and compare their solutions with their estimates. Math Lesson 3: Grouping Arrangement—Large group Materials Needed: Chalkboard; wingbeat data.

MATH CONTENT STRAND: Numbers and Operations MATH OBJECTIVES: Compute fluently and make reasonable estimates. Develop fluency with basic number combinations for multiplication. Develop fluency in multiplying whole numbers. Develop and use strategies to estimate the results of whole-number computations and to judge the reasonableness of such results. DESCRIPTION: Amazing Animals describes examples of the remarkable physical abilities of some animals. Students use data from the book to solve problems involving multiplication of multidigit numbers by one-digit numbers.

MATH VOCABULARY:

digit, product, regrouping

Have students find the above words in the text and discuss their meanings. Have students write and solve the following problem: 16 x 3.Then have students label the problem with the vocabulary words. Ask students to circle in red where regrouping took place, draw a blue line under an example of a digit, and draw a green box around the product. CONTENT VOCABULARY:

ASSESSMENT: WRITING ABOUT MATH:

amphibian, arachnid, cold-blooded, insect, mammal, molt, reptile, stretch, tropical, warm-blooded

Discuss these vocabulary words and their definitions. Ask students to work with a partner to sort vocabulary words into at least three distinct groups. Have students volunteer to share their groupings and the rationale behind the groupings. (For example: Warm-blooded and cold-blooded are opposites; Insect, arachnid, mammal, reptile, and amphibian are types of animals.) Pose the following questions: Why are animals different from each other? Why does a bird look different from a bear? Why does an ostrich look different from a hawk? Have students turn to a neighbor and share their ideas. Explain that this book describes some adaptations, which are characteristics of an animal that help it survive. Adaptations make animals different from each other, because different animals are adapted to live in different environments and fill different roles.

Ask students to imagine that a sick classmate has missed several days of school and doesn’t know how to multiply a multidigit number by a one-digit number. Have students write an explanation for their classmate that includes a sample problem with its solution. Students should write out a clear, easy-to-follow explanation of the steps involved. Display the steps as a checklist, poster, or diagram. ADDITIONAL ACTIVITIES RELATED TO CONTENT AREAS: Science: Animals’ unique adaptations may improve their chances of survival. Have students select an animal and research its physical adaptations. Ask students to draw a detailed illustration of their animal and label its physical adaptations. (For example: Owls have fringed feathers for silent flight, sharp talons for catching prey, large eyes to gather light, and flexible necks to improve their range of vision.) Social Studies: Using the social studies curriculum as a guide, select three different regions of the state, country, or world. Create a class chart comparing adaptations that aid animals’ survival in each of the three areas. Across the top of the chart, list the three regions. Label the rows of the chart as follows: Climate and Other Factors, Useful Adaptations, Animals That Live There. (For example: Sahara desert, very dry and hot/be able to tolerate heat and go without water/camel.) Work together as a class to fill in three or more of the blanks on the chart, then have students work in small groups to complete the chart. Have students use this information to individually write a brief analysis of the information on the chart.

NUMBERS AND OPERATIONS ACTIVITIES: Math Lesson 1: Grouping Arrangement—Large group/pairs Materials Needed: Chalkboard or chart paper; paper; pencils. Activity: As a review, select examples of problems from the text and solve them with the class. Model the use of estimation. Encourage students to estimate what the answer will be and to use this estimate to check the reasonableness of their answer after completing their computations. For example, if the problem asks students to multiply 12 x 8, students may round the 12 to 10 and the 8 to 10. Since 10 x 10 is 100, the answer to 12 x 8 should be close to 100. Another way to solve this problem would be to multiply 10 x 8 and add 2 x 8. If the problem is 172 x 8, students may estimate that the answer will be somewhat less than 1,720 (which would be the answer if the problem were 172 x 10). Ask students to select another problem from the text, use a strategy to estimate the answer, compute the answer, and share their work with a partner. www.rosenclassroom.com

Activity: On the chalkboard, create a chart listing the following birds and their wing beats per 10 seconds: crow, 20; robin, 23; pigeon, 30; starling, 50; chickadee, 270; hummingbird, 800. Have students stand far enough apart that they can spread their arms without bumping each other.Time them while they flap their arms for 30 seconds, having them count how many times they flap in that amount of time. Ask them how to determine how many times they can flap in one minute (multiply by 2).Then ask students how to determine how many times each bird listed on the chalkboard can flap in one minute (multiply by 6). Have students determine the wing beats per minute for the birds and compare those with their own “wing beats” per minute.

What People Are Saying About West 44 Some Girls Bind

Sanctuary Somewhere

“James proves the power of the novel in verse as a vehicle to convey rich characterization, complex themes, and a reading experience that levels the field between struggling and skilled readers… Jamie’s friends each have their own issues, and Jamie is a sympathetic friend as well as a teen caught in the private drama of self-awareness that makes adolescence and identity construction frightening to so many. VERDICT: Highly recommended for school and public libraries.” —School Library Journal, STARRED Review

“Debut author Dimmig produces a deep and meaningful story in verse for reluctant readers about a young man who is shocked to discover that he is undocumented....The narrative is powerful, informative, and insightful...An undeniably moving read recommended for absolutely everyone—Dreamer or not.” —Kirkus

Little Pills

(series The Club)

“Dodds presents a genuine, complicated, and struggling teenage protagonist in Charlotte...An engrossing, lyrical debut with strong appeal for reluctant readers that confronts the realities of addiction through an absorbing first-person narrative.” —Kirkus

“An aspiring biologist who’s bullied because of his disability finds friends when he enters a go-kart competition… the optimistic open ending implies that Milo’s growth, like the resilient oak’s, is an ongoing process that’s ‘hard, but not impossible.’ A realistic, hopeful take on meeting challenges and making friends.” —Kirkus
