Pair-It! Twin Texts
Pairing the Read and Discover books with Dear Dragon titles focusing on
the same concept allows you to incorporate “Twin Texts” to support the balance
of reading nonfiction and fiction that is an integral goal of the Common Core
State Standards. Research cites that twin texts help encourage the enjoyment
of reading while capitalizing on students’ fascination with facts. Educators can
begin by reading the nonfiction book to build background, which helps support
comprehension of the related fiction. Alternately, starting with the fiction, you
can spark your child’s interest and expand his or her knowledge of the topic
with the nonfiction text. Educators’ Resources and Correlations to CCSS are
available on our website: www.norwoodhousepress.com
