About this Campaign

Geodes are a set of books which are aligned with the Wilson Foundations fundamental reading program which includes Wit & Wisdom. Wit & Wisdom is a program that was created by and for teachers to focus on knowledge-building lessons. While practicing reading, speaking, listening, vocabulary, and grammar skills, students also get the opportunity to learn about history, science, art, and more! This helps to build a more holistic English Language Arts (ELA) experience!

Great Minds and Wilson Language Training teamed up to create Geodes. Geodes accompanies Wit & Wisdom to encourage students to take what they have learned in phonics and teaches them to wonder, to decode, and to know more. They are a set of books for students in Kindergarten through second grade. Geodes are unique in that they imbed decoding skills along with content and vocabulary practice. While many children books are quite basic, Geodes make the books informational and exciting as a way to spark curiosity for children to continue learning and to explore new topics.

We'd love the opportunity to bring this program to our school in order to bring together the entire ELA experience for our youngest students. Having this program for our Kindergarteners up to our second graders would help to build that curiosity and excitement around reading, speaking, listening, and so much more! With this program we will be able to help our students become the most successful they possibly can be.
