PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Sparkle Readers: emergent level with 2 lines of text
Welcome to January 2013! Here are four new readers to add some
"sparkle" to those chilly winter months. These readers are more complex but still contain repetitive text with a focus on the sight words "This is..." Both fiction and non fiction stories have been provided which are crucial when implementing the new Common Core Standards. Students use a variety of skills when interacting with each reader. There is a strong focus on contextualizing sight words and building academic vocabulary and information on the arctic. Sentence strip builders have also been provided for each story so that students can practice building the text in a pocket chart to build confidence as well as fluency.
Here are the January titles included in this huge packet:
1. This Is A New Year: This reader focuses on learning the sequence of the months and identifying numbers in various patterns.
2. This Is Winter: Students have an opportunity to cut and paste winter clothing into their reader and also do some guided drawing.
3. This Is the Arctic: This little book is about animals that live in the arctic. Some will be familiar and others will be new and more challenging. Students love books with animals in them. This one allows them to draw the setting on each page.
4. Winter Teens: Your students are given an opportunity to practice writing the teen numbers, reading them as words, and creating matching quantities in 10 grids to make it interactive. This is another way to practice this difficult skill.
Please note that I have many other sets of readers for purchase. Be sure to visit my blog for other literacy ideas.
If you are starting a winter theme this set will surely add some sparkle to your program.
Happy New Year friends!

Hi Fran. I purchased your Sparkle Reader #6 last year and pulled it up to use again this year, then realized the "This Is a New Year" book is for 2013. Did you happen to update it for 2014? I hope I didn't miss seeing it somewhere. Thank you!

On  January 7, 2013,  Kathy S. asked:
Hey! I have purchased your Sparkle Readers and love them. I teach PreK and have very emergent readers;) Is there any chance of finding out which sight words are used in this series? The topics are absolutely perfect. I am really watching my money and I want to purchase these, but I need to know if these may be too difficult for my students...i do love the ones I purchased before. Thanks so much.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  January 7, 2013Fran Kramer answered:
This is are the sight words I focus on but there are 2 lines of text on each page... example: This is my sweater. I am so cold. This is my scarf. I am so cold. So I still have repetitive text but it is more complex so you decide. Read the description carefully and I hope this helps.
Thanks for your interest!
