Transitions to Literacy is a state-of-the-art literacy-skills development program for emergent readers in grades pre-K, K, and 1. It combines traditional paperback print materials and the latest interactive digital technology, along with the very effective comprehension assessment tool —the Accelerated Reader®.

Digital Components

Transitions to Literacy interactive e-books were developed specifically to assist classroom teachers in emergent literacy instruction. Digital features are carefully matched to emergent literacy goals and the zone of proximal development (ZPD) range of children in grades pre-K, K, and 1. Reading teachers familiar with scaffolding techniques using print materials will find interactive e-books provide many additional and very effective options.

About Accelerated Reader®

The Accelerated Reader® (AR) is an extremely time-efficient and effective method of assessing comprehension. Children are able to take the AR quizzes independently and track the points they earn. They enjoy and are motivated by interaction with the AR program. The Accelerated Reader® gives teachers working with Transitions to Literacy the chance to easily monitor the amount and quality of reading completed by each child.

The ATOS™ system is used in the Accelerated Reader®. The books in the Transitions to Literacy Program were written to meet the requirements of the lowest levels of the ATOS™ readability formula. The result is engaging books that reflect the natural way young children think and speak, which makes it easier for them to decode and comprehend. Every book is written at the 0.7 – 0.9 ATOS™ readability level.
