The instructor can select the handouts needed to teach or reinforce different concepts.

Each story includes an introduction, background information, the written text and a photo depicting the story, as well as various learning activities such as pre-reading, sentence patterns, writing, and learning vowel sounds. Learning outcomes include mastering reading readiness skills, using reading strategies effectively, reading to comprehend and respond, using word analysis skills to extract meaning from written text, and using writing to express thoughts.
