Ideal for use in a wide variety of early childhood education settings, this convenient kit contains the materials you need to implement the Story Friends™ early language and literacy intervention with a small group.
Fun, engaging, and effective, Story Friends is the first research-based Tier 2 language intervention program for 4- to 6-year-old children at risk for reading difficulties. Through interactive animal-themed storybooks and lively, engaging audio recordings, Story Friends effectively boosts oral language and vocabulary development—two of the most important predictors of later reading success. With colorful illustrations, rhyming text, interactive story components, and appealing narration from Wanda the Word Wolf, the program hooks and holds young attention spans. And because Story Friends is a natural fit with any existing classroom schedule or curriculum, it's easier than ever to deliver interventions when they matter most and get all young children ready to read and succeed.
Packed in a sturdy box with a handle for easy carrying, this kit contains:
1 Teacher Guide with complete guidance on implementing the program
3 complete sets of 26 full-color, animal-themed storybooks for conducting Story Friends in small groups (78 total storybooks)
1 USB with the audio tracks that accompany each storybook (252 minutes of instruction)
1 set of 18 shrink-wrapped picture cards for assessing children’s acquisition of words
*Note: If you're an SLP or reading specialist and don't need the extra sets of storybooks for small-group intervention, please purchase the Story Friends Specialist's Kit.
