Number 1: Scott Foresman: Reading Street Common Core Edition
Most students need extra extended response questions practice to prepare for the PARCC assessments.

The Envision It books that are part of all the Readers as a supplemental reference at the front and back of each text book. The "Envision Books" are styled as a graphic comic that teachers the most difficult tier 3 academic ELA concepts.
