There is a variety of different reading systems in use in the elementary schools today. The most commonly found systems are often organized into a basal reading series which many schools use as their major source of reading instruction. However, no matter how complete a basal series is, it can't be the answer for all of the students all of the time. To incorporate this area of weakness or needed review, teachers often use supplemental materials from a variety of sources. Some of the problems with gathering supplemental material are that of time to search, money to acquire, space to store, or the ability to retrieve and correlate the material identified.
