This is a 13 page emergent reader designed to help Kindergarteners build confidence in their beginning reading skills. This reader is based on the very old (and very much in the public domain) Christmas carol, "A Partridge in a Pear Tree." In this version, the animals bring something of their own to help decorate a Christmas tree. The owl brings a snowflake, the cat brings balls of yarn, the horse brings apples, etc. The reader uses repetitive text and tracking dots beneath the words. The text also helps teach the concept of ordinal numbers using abbreviations for the words first, such as "1st." Number words are also used on each page. The clip art is from www.KPMDoodles. I am very excited about this reader! My students love books with animal characters, and I can't wait to show them this one! Hope you enjoy! Mary Storms-mykindofkindergarten.blogspot.com
