In this realistic fiction Leveled Book, Skye hates the school lunch her mom gives her and hides it at home every day without considering the consequences. The Flying Panini comes from the Grade 1 classroom kit but can be enjoyed by any students at a Level K instructional reading level.
As children read the book, use the notes in the teaching panels to teach essential reading skills in context, including vowel sounds, singular/plural, syllables, the suffix -ing, parts of speech, the structure and features of a narrative, and a variety of comprehension skills and strategies.
After reading, use the built-in Partner Talk and Going Solo activities to help students build oral language, comprehension, and writing skills.
Download the Take & Teach Lesson for a closer look at the teaching opportunities built into the book as well as additional support for English learners, five respond and extend activities, and a social-emotional learning mini-lesson on evaluating consequences.

JillE Literacy was created by educator, author, and international literacy consultant Jill Eggleton, QSO. Since her earliest days as a classroom teacher in New Zealand, Jill has known that there is no room for struggle, pain, or boredom in reading.
Teachers need books that work as hard as they do. Today’s teachers have more demands on their time than ever. JillE Literacy lets teachers spend less time planning and more time teaching.
Engagement is key. There is no room for struggle, pain, or boredom in reading. To engage young readers, teachers need books and poems that spark emotion, imagination, critical thinking, curiosity, and creativity.
Foundational literacy skills need to be explicitly and systematically taught. You cannot read if you can’t decode accurately. However, you cannot learn to read by just learning to decode. JillE Literacy embeds explicit instruction and repeated practice in foundational literacy skills throughout every text, uniquely using highly engaging books and poems rather than the usual dull, decodable texts.
