This book is one of the 10 first grade pre-primer books in Level D – Set 2 of my original series of leveled books which is written to incorporate the Fountas and Pinnell leveled vocabulary, Rebecca Sitton spelling words, and general curriculum standards for grades K-6 in the United States.
Each book comes with a companion worksheet which reinforces literacy skills involving reading, language, spelling, and writing. Specific concepts, skills, and vocabulary targeted in each book are listed on the first page of each story.
The books are grouped into various collections. Level D has Set 1 and Set 2 with 10 books per set. In addition to “The Parade”, Level D - Set 2 includes 9 other leveled readers (both fiction and non-fiction): A Kiss for Kim, Baseball, Breakfast, Cats in the Pet Store, Fast or Slow?, In School; One Day, More Days; The Recycle Station, The Drape.
The general categories for the books include animals, foods, places, people, living things, non-living things, events, math, nature & science, social skills, and academic readiness.
