Question about chapter books/reading pace and lessons???

Is there a place in the hard copy curriculum units where it says what chapters should have been read prior to starting a lesson? We are using the curriculum with two special needs kids but the books need to be read to them because of vision challenges. For instance, The Wanderer (concept 1, unit 1)--does it say anywhere what chapters the kids should have read through before they complete the first lesson?? I can't seem to find it in the hardcopy but in the samples on the /online version, it has the corresponding chapters. Thanks!!

Hi Elizabeth,

The lessons will always state which chapters/pages need to be read before starting the lesson. Right after the assigned reading, there will be Reading Questions. In the example you gave with the Wanderer, the first lesson includes some introductory work. Instead of reading the first chapters, students are researching the author of the book. Lesson 2 has students reading Chapters 1-7, and then answering reading questions.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Thank you,
Vicki

So, just to be clear on this. WE don't start reading the book together before the first lesson. Before the second lesson, he should read certain chapters and then start working on the lesson? Thanks.

Yes. You are prompted in the appropriate lesson to read the book and told which pages or chapters to read. Often, in the language arts units, there is a lesson or two with background information used while reading the book. This can be about the author, location or vocabulary needed for the reading.
