For the first time each title is available separately or as a Class Set (5 of each title).

With all Sound Out Chapter Books, students have a chance to read engaging text while the controlled vocabulary helps them practice phonics and basic word-building skills. Sound Out Levels 5 and 6 introduce the following skills: one-syllable spelling patterns, word endings, compound words, prefixes and suffixes, and simple two-syllable words.

Dark Tunnels
Many years ago, young men disappeared under the streets of Portland. They were hidden in tunnels and forced to work on ships.

City on Ice
Near the South Pole, on a rock surrounded by ice there is a small city called McMurdo Base. How did it get there? What is it like there? And why do people live in all that cold?

Hidden City
Hidden under the modern city of Seattle lies another older and forgotten one. Why did the people build over their old streets?

Floating Town
Every year, when the floods come to Cambodia, the Great River runs backward. The town on the Great River floats, and spreads out over a vast lake. How do the people live without land?

Under the Mountain
Deep inside a mountain, people in NORAD worked to defend against attack from the skies. Why were they hiding under a mountain?

Sinking City
Venice is sinking! More and more water floods the plazas, but people are working to save this historic Italian City. What can they do, with rising water all around?
