ELL Text Sets

Grades K to 5

Ready-Made ELL Text Sets Help to Align the ELP Standards to the CCSS!
Many states have begun the process of adapting the English Language Proficiency (ELP) Standards to align with the Common Core State Standards. Given the emphasis on close reading and obtaining evidence from a text that is the focus of the CCSS, English Language Learners face a double challenge of simultaneously acquiring a second language as well as gaining an understanding of the knowledge and skills in multiple disciplines through that second language.

Sundance/Newbridge ELL Grade Text Sets help to support teachers in engaging ELL students. The ELL Sets contain:

Student Books

  • 12 consistently leveled texts that are accessible to ELL students and yet are at a complexity level that meets the CCSS expectations
  • Topics and stories that are age-appropriate and draw on background known to most students
  • High-quality illustrations and photographs that grab students' attention and support the text for improved comprehension
