Frequently Asked Questions
What grade levels are the books written for?
The target audience for the Dragonflier Kids book series is advanced learners in grades K-2. However, all students regardless of ability levels could benefit from the themes. Learners in grades 3 & 4 will also enjoy the adventures of the Dragonflier Kids and benefit from the content. Young learners of all ages and abilities will enjoy the dialogue in the books, relate to the social and emotional issues tackled in the books, and will engage with the activities in the chapter books and task books. Emergent readers or non-gifted readers will need some support with the text. Regardless of reading ability, students will learn from the way the characters confront the social and emotional issues in the books and the advanced content integrated in each book.
What grade levels are the task books appropriate for?
The tasks included in the Student Task Book are designed to provide challenge for advanced learners in grades K-2. Many learners in grades 3 and 4 will enjoy the series and task books, and will be able to work independently on the tasks with little direction. The tasks require the ability to make connections, problem solving and critical thinking skills. The youngest learners will need support with some of the tasks, and some might need extensions. Whenever appropriate, I have included strategies to increase the level of challenge required in the tasks.
