With Wit & Wisdom, every text a student touches is authentic and of the highest quality. Students use these texts at every turn — to learn, and eventually master, essential reading, writing, speaking, listening, grammar, and vocabulary. Instead of basals, students read books they love, to build knowledge of important topics and master literacy skills. All students read and communicate about grade-level texts, with suggestions for support included at key moments in lessons.
Students practice reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language based in text. All strands of the standards are integrated throughout each module with:
Every module in each grade is focused on a topic that is essential for building background knowledge, vocabulary, and more.
