This emergent reader tells the story of Christopher Columbus in approximately a level 4 or 6. It talks about Columbus wanting to go to the Indies for spices and gold. King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella also want spices and gold, so they give Columbus ships and money to travel west to the Indies; however, they arrive in America. If you would like to differentiate this content with your kiddos, I also have a Christopher Columbus emergent reader written at a level two. Just click on the link below. This reader is written with enlarged font and exaggerated spacing for beginning readers. This is great to use around Columbus Day, or with your Columbus and the Pilgrims Core Knowledge unit.
