What is Step by Step, Level A? Transport your students into a world of vivid color, imagination, and fun as they learn Chinese with Step by Step, Level A Designed for students with no prior experience of Chinese language, this delightful 33-volume set of graded readers takes students on an exciting educational journey as they learn Chinese through content-based instruction in science, math, and social studies. Pedagogical alignment with ACTFL s 5 C s and the Common Core State Standards places Step by Step in a unique position to satisfy the curriculum goals of every elementary school Chinese program: from intensive immersion to casual exploration. Step by Step, Level A will ignite students passion to learn through its variety of artistic styles and subject matter, serving as an indispensible component for any first year Chinese course either as a core series or as supporting material. How does Step by Step, Level A work? The first of this multi-level series, Step by Step, Level A starts with three Foundation stories, which introduce 35 essential vocabulary terms. Once students have mastered the vocabulary in the Foundation stories, teachers can introduce any of the 10 cross-curricular themes family, hygiene, nutrition, activity, plants, school, water, community, time, and math to reinforce content learned in other subject areas and provide familiar and engaging language learning contexts. There are three readers in each theme, and each reader introduces approximately 8-12 new high frequency vocabulary terms while systematically recycling previously learned vocabulary. The non-linear relationship among themes allows you to design your language curriculum to match the curriculum in other subject areas and to introduce as many or as few themes as suits your program. For rigorous programs, the foundation stories and the 10 themes introduce over 250 vocabulary terms. Home support Most American parents do not speak Chinese this challenges programs and teachers to find new ways to help parents and guardians support their young learners during the study of Chinese. Step by Step, Level A provides a variety of resources to meet this challenge, including full English translations, new word lists with pinyin, as well as a robust companion website complete with mp3 audio, flashcards, word lists, and more. Contact your representative for samples and more.

The Chinese Flagship Program at Brigham Young University (BYU) was established in 2002 by a grant from the National Security Education Program (NSEP) to develop high level proficiency in the Chinese Language.

    I love these readers. They are helping me with learning Mandarin. I am happy I purchased these. The artwork is cute too.

    With a student in a Mandarin Kindergarten immersion class....this set is extremely helpful in enabling us to help her learn.

    I am a Chinese learner and can speak middle intermediate level. However, gave up learning to read Chinese because of the frustration of reinforcing my learned items and using them to write on the many online blogs/facebook learning sites. Currently, after three months since beginning "Step by Step Chinese reader A", I can read and write all of the Chinese characters in the set of books. The reason this set works is because the first book introduces the student to about twelve Chinese characters, then each page uses the words to form a simple sentence, forming the most common Chinese used in reading and speaking such as " I am here" or "you are there" The first book has about twelve words and about ten sentences using only the twelve words. Then the next the next, and consecutive books will offer more words and sentences plus use only words from the previous books to reinforce learned vocabulary. If you are as old as me then these books are like the "Dick and Jane books" that teach and reinforce basic reading skills through a lot of repetition . There are 33 books, downloadable audios and flashcards from the web site.

    Excellent, progressive readers, with audio available from website. Just be aware that they are almost pamphlets, just a few pages each and about 6x5 inches. Although I'm happy with the purchase, I was initially disappointed due to the aesthetics but remember the saying 'never judge a book by its cover (size!)'.The content is very cleverly structured to follow on from three foundation books. By the end of the series I expect a really reinforced vocabulary experience.
