We recommend using fine literature for teaching and practicing text structure, mental actions, and fluent and expressive reading.
Some books are now out of print. Below are links to the updated lists for kindergarten to sixth grade (aligned to the 3rd edition of the Teacher’s Guide). The book lists are now listed in the order of instruction. Books are available at the library and/or for purchase.
Our mission is to increase literacy for all children and adults by using THE SPALDING METHOD® to develop skilled readers, critical listeners, and accomplished writers and spellers.
