New themed-based K-6 collections—and a contest!

With the Common Core State Standards requiring students to dive deep into rigorous texts and focus on nonfiction to build knowledge, educators have been telling us they need theme-based collections of books built around the topics they most commonly teach. Voila! Text Setscollections of nonfiction books for grades K-6 built around science- and social studies-based themes.

Each Text Sets collection exposes students to six different nonfiction titles built around the same theme – from plants to geography to ancient civilization and more. Text Sets helps students build critical domain-specific knowledge needed to tackle complex, grade-level reading.

Although the program is already being used across the country, from New York to Hawaii, we thought it would be fun to give a Text Sets collection to one lucky reader. We also want to get more feedback from you: What sorts of themes would you like to see in future text sets?

For a chance to win, add a new comment below with your feedback and ideas for future sets!

GIVEAWAY: Enter the Text Sets for a chance to win a 55-book theme set of informational text (K-6)! To enter, leave a comment on this blog post telling us how Text Sets could help you support your students.  Comment any time between June 26 and 5:59pm EST July 2, 2013. One winner will be randomly selected! Read the official rules here. (Giveaway open to U.S. residents only; must be 18 or older to enter.)


These sets look great! I'd

These sets look great! I'd find them especially helpful with my bilingual students. I'd love to see titles about scientists, environmental issues, and biomes.

I think it would be really

I think it would be really neat to see a text set dedicated to either physics or chemistry. Those subjects are so unfamiliar to students, and if there was a fun way for them to learn basic information at a young age, that would be so helpful when they get older. I would probably even use them for older students when appropriate.

Text sets will be a great

Text sets will be a great literary resource to teach the Common Core Standards and enhance our IB units. In addition, text sets will be valuable to our new Balanced Literacy program. This is a great idea!

These books are awesome! We

These books are awesome! We will be studying environments this year and these would be a great addition to our library!! Love Scholastic!!!!

I'm a second grade teacher

I'm a second grade teacher and I love the Weather and Scientist and Scientist Tools Text Sets. I only saw one social studies text set, so maybe more social studies books based on historical events and holidays, maps, economics, and historical role models like Helen Keller, Martin Luther King, and Harriet Tubman. Thanks!

These sets sound great!

These sets sound great! Maybe early American history as well as physical science topics would be nice...I'm not sure if you already have them as this is the first I've seen of this series.

These are so exciting! We

These are so exciting! We need nonfiction texts that support our new science standards and also fulfill requirements in the English/Language Arts Common Core!

What an amazing collection of

What an amazing collection of books! Bugs are always fun to read and learn abut. A future idea could be about careers, books on the fire station, police, the dentist, and other jobs children might have an interest or questions about!

Great set of bug books :) I

Great set of bug books :) I like the idea of having a collection of culture books. Books on Chinese, Hispanic, German, cultures that have special holidays and occasions the children can learn more about. Books about what certain countries grow (crop wise) and how the cook different foods. I think children would enjoy this collection.

I am enjoying adding to my

I am enjoying adding to my library all the nonfiction books, magazines and maps that I can find. Another theme might be math books, grammar themes, writing themes and animals- bats, ladybugs, and dragonflies.

In 6th grade history it would

In 6th grade history it would be nice to have text sets about minerals, space, and ancient civilizations. The more kids can be exposed to text in content area classes, the better reader they will become.

I love these sets to help

I love these sets to help integrate our Science and Reading objectives! Having interesting texts engages all students!

The Text Sets collections

The Text Sets collections look great. I would love to see these sets based on math concepts. I am happy to see how Scholastic is constantly evolving based on the needs of our students and teachers. Thank you, Scholastic!!

I love this idea! Great for

I love this idea! Great for giving skill outcomes relatable and interesting content. I would be interested in finding a Text Set that focuses on STEAM. Maybe each book would focus on a different part of STEAM?

These text sets look great! I

These text sets look great! I love not having to look and look and look to put things together. It makes purchasing so much easier.I also like that there are enough books of the main selection for the entire class. I would like to see sets on Civil Rights, The Great Depression, World Wars, and the Roaring Twenties. Some of the main topics we teach in Social Studies right now.

With the focus on STEM

With the focus on STEM education, the primary classroom library needs to include more non-fiction texts in science, technology, engineering (problem solving) and math. These would be a hit in my 2nd grade classroom!

I would like to see sets that

I would like to see sets that have seasonal themes--like Fall would have pumpkins, spiders, etc and Winter would have snow animals, snowflakes, etc.

Thanks for the great ideas.

Thanks for the great ideas. I'm looking for new great texts/ text sets, and ideas for organizing these sets for teaching sixth grade Ancient Civilizations and Global Issues. I do work in an economically depressed area, so just seeing ideas like this often help me create resources that our school doesn't have the funding to buy.

Tadacip is indicated for the

Tadacip is indicated for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. Under normal circumstances, when a man is sexually stimulated, the penis fills up with blood. When erectile dysfunction occurs, enough blood does not flow to cause an erection. Tadacip relaxes the penile blood vessels when a man is sexually stimulated. This allows blood flow into the penis, resulting in an erection. The erection subsides after sex, just as it is supposed to in normal conditions. Please note that Tadacip is not a hormone or aphrodisiac, it works only when a man is sexually stimulated. <b>ORDER TADACIP ONLINE RIGHT NOW ONLY FOR $1.30 Per pill</b> <a href=;group=MedFor&amp;parameter=Tadacip> >>> ENTER HERE! <<<</a> <b>INSTRUCTIONS</b> Always use Tadacip exactly as your doctor has instructed.
