This document has been created to provide the teachers of Alabama with a correlation of the Alabama Science and Social
Studies Standards to the selection titles and leveled readers from Scott Foresman Reading Street. This document
demonstrates the strong cross curricular coverage that is found in Scott Foresman Reading Street.

Scott Foresman Reading Street is a comprehensive reading program for Kindergarten through Grade Six that is built on
solid research and prioritizes the five core areas of reading instruction for every grade: Phonemic Awareness, Phonics,
Fluency, Vocabulary and Text Comprehension.

Literature
Reading Street provides a rich variety of genres that include a balance of fiction and nonfiction. Content-area
connections support science and social studies instruction every week. With a greater emphasis on informational text,
Reading Street prepares students for the kinds of selections they will encounter on state assessments.

Assessment
Reading Street begins the year with the Baseline Group Test to make initial grouping decision. Progress is monitored
during instruction and identifies students’ needs along the way. The Unit Benchmark Test measures student performance
and can be used to regroup. The End-of-Year Benchmark Test gives a summative assessment and shows how far
students have come.

Differentiated Instruction
Reading Street instruction is systematic, explicit, and highly focused for all ability levels. Each unit gives a clear road
map to differentiate instruction for On-Level, Strategic Intervention, and Advanced readers. Group Time throughout each
lesson provides scaffolded instruction for all readers. Built-in lessons for Strategic Intervention and Advanced learners
supplement core instruction every day. Weekly Leveled Readers and Leveled Practice help every student practice and
apply comprehension skills and vocabulary in appropriate texts.

ELL Instruction
Reading Street paves the way with highly focused ELL instruction, practice, and resources to meet all proficiency levels
and provides an ELL Reader every week to build vocabulary, provide text support, and enrich language skills.
