Play to Win
You might say sports run in the family! Cousins Kat and Jamal play a lot of sports, and Jamal’s mom is a coach. Brother and sister Eli and Sarah also love sports, and their dad is a coach. In this series, readers will “play along” with the four friends as they compete in tae kwon do, tennis, football, mountain biking, and cheerleading. If your students liked the Play Hard series (level 1 hi-lo), they’ll like the Play to Win series.
