Geodes: A New Approach to Early Literacy

Emerging readers crave books that inspire and fascinate. That’s why Great Minds and Wilson Language Training collaborated to create a new approach to early literacy. Introducing Geodes®, a collection of accessible, knowledge-building books for emerging and developing readers.


Designed to be highly readable for emerging and developing readers, each book is at least 80 percent decodable as aligned with the scope and sequence of Wilson Fundations®—a multisensory and systematic phonics, spelling, and handwriting program that benefits all K-3 students.
