Older Group

*Three options are given for Family Read-Aloud books: a group of books for younger students, a group for middle students, and a group for older students. Select one of the groups to read aloud to your family—the one that best reflects the age range of most of your students. The Young Group is geared toward approximately grades 1–4, Middle Group for grades 5–8, and Older Group for grades 9–12. If you have a wide range of student ages to accommodate, you may want to select one group of books to read aloud and assign another group to older students to read independently.
