Reading Kits

Siouxland Libraries reading kits are designed to help beginning readers develop and practice core reading skills:

  • background knowledge
  • comprehension
  • decoding
  • fluency.

Each skill comes in two levels, New Reader and Developing Reader, with multiple kit options in those levels. New Reader kits target readers at the very beginning of their learning-to-read journey, and Developing Reader kits are the next step in building strong readers. Check one out here.
