Grade K–1 Band Teacher License (Digital)

This special grade-band one-year subscription gives you access to all teacher materials for Junior Great Books® Series K and 1 through the new and improved Junior Great Books Digital Classroom. 

Each book in Series K and 1 includes 12 outstanding, developmentally appropriate selections (nine stories, three poems), full-color illustrations, guidelines for discussion, and activities that encourage students to record their thinking through drawing, dictation, and writing. Materials are presented to students in three easy-to-manage volumes. 

The Teacher’s Edition contains all these materials in one larger volume per grade level, plus:

  • Annotated Student Book pages with complete selections
  • Step-by-step instructions for each unit with helpful tips and differentiation options
  • Vocabulary activities
  • Family engagement activities

Grade-Band Benefits

  • Users get access to content at varied reading levels to meets their specific needs. Because reading levels can vary widely at a grade level, many students may work more comfortably a grade down, or need more “stretch” texts than a single grade provides.
  • Users get access to a wider range of texts and topics to better fit the module topic or theme of their primary curriculum. Current curriculums heavily emphasize staying within a topic/theme, but topics in each grade vary by program. This allows maximum flexibility for teachers.
  • Teachers can provide additional content to students who have shown independence and would like additional practice with reading and discussion, or for afterschool activities, camps, and other programs.

In the NEW Junior Great Books Digital Classroom, teachers can: 

  • Receive notes submitted by students, enabling them to track questions students pose as they read. This private communication enables one-on-one support and helps ensure comprehension of the text.
  • Play professionally recorded audio of the selections 
  • See glossary definitions, which appear alongside the text, of potentially unfamiliar words
  • View student analytics on student progress and time spent within the platform 
  • Work with both digital texts and print books seamlessly because both formats match page-by-page

Note: Teacher-resource pages and student handouts, including student activity pages, reflection forms, and discussion planners, may be printed.
