Hello, first time poster here. Hoping to get some advice based on your experiences.

I currently run a small kids' class. I'll be changing the format of the class and adding students soon. We currently don't use a text but I will be introducing one at that time. Since all kids' texts include reading work, how should I deal with, say, 5th and 6th grade elementary school students who may not read? The 5th and 6th grade texts include reading skills that have built on the previous 4 years of textbooks in the same series, and my new students won't have those skills.

What is the best way to cope with this gap?

Thanks for any ideas, especially those that have worked for you in the past!
