Overview: Whether used for intervention or classroom guided reading instruction, the Blueberry Hill books ensure the beginning reader experiences success! The Level A/1 and B/2 pattern stories help develop early literacy skills and reinforce basic concepts such as colors, shapes, numbers, rhyme, prepositions, etc. Stories with a beginning, middle and end begin at Level C/3 & 4. Children enjoy getting to know the recurring characters in our eight story strands. The inside covers contain built-in support for teachers and parents: the theme, a sample introduction, the tricky parts, word work suggestions that often link to new words in the text, discussion suggestions, a strategy list, the number of words, etc.

Note: The majority of the time, the Blueberry Hill levels align with the Reading Recovery levels/Fountas & Pinnell text level gradients. When they don’t, careful consideration is given to the words, sentence length and language structures before a decision is made to keep the Blueberry Hill level the same.
