Addressing Early Literacy with Captivating Knowledge-Building Books

Putting Foundational Phonics into Practice

Discover Geodes®, an innovative approach to early literacy from Great Minds® that provides emerging readers with the opportunity to read to learn as they learn to read. Rich with facts and ideas that spark students’ curiosity, these books feature diverse characters, beautiful illustrations, and opportunities for beginning readers to practice phonics and decoding skills. Geodes are designed to be paired with foundational reading programs such as Fundations®, Really Great Reading, and 95 Phonics Core Program that provide systematic and explicit phonics and phonemic awareness instruction.

Hear from our content expert Virginia Day, implementation leader for humanities at Great Minds, as she provides a comprehensive walk-through of the components that set Geodes apart. Virginia will share more about

  • how Geodes couple specific decoding skills with content and vocabulary,
  • the support offered for educators, students, and their families, and
  • how to bring Geodes to your school or district.
