Strengthen Literacy Skills with Wit & Wisdom, Geodes, and Really Great Reading

Great Minds® and Really Great Reading have come together to leverage the strengths of their programs into one new joint offering for schools nationwide. With a shared deep commitment to teacher success, we have collaborated to provide educators with a tight alignment of instructional materials supporting strong foundational skills, including phonics and decoding, and literacy instruction. To ensure successful implementation, schools can now place one order with Great Minds and receive all the materials and joint professional development they need in one seamless solution.

For Grades K–2, Wit & Wisdom, Geodes, and Really Great Reading work together to provide a high-quality program that sets students up for literacy success. Wit & Wisdom builds language comprehension and reading and writing skills, while Really Great Reading focuses on foundational skills, such as phonemic awareness, decoding, encoding, spelling, handwriting, and vocabulary. With the extensive collection of Geodes books, students practice their decoding skills as they acquire knowledge of the world around them—developing fluency, vocabulary, and background knowledge needed for true reading comprehension. 


Three Essential Components of Research-Based Literacy Instruction

Wit & Wisdom, Geodes, and Really Great Reading support evidence-based instruction, but investing in one without the others shortchanges students in their literacy development. Implementing all three of these elements provides a seamless and holistic learning experience for students by bringing the science of reading to life in every lesson.

Give your students the advantage they deserve and unlock their full potential with the winning combination of Wit & Wisdom, Geodes, and Really Great Reading.
