Helping students gain fluency and confidence with alphabet recognition and letter/sound correspondence in kindergarten is critical in guiding your students to become confident, fluent readers and writers in the future. Students need repeated exposure, as well as ample opportunities for practice throughout the school year. I have developed this set of emergent readers and corresponding response activities to help you achieve this more easily, while practicing sight words, writing skills, cutting/gluing, following directions, and developing vocabulary! I know how valuable your time is, so I made this as low prep as possible. The readers will print 2 per page for quick and easy assembly and the response activities are print and use. The only section that requires laminating and cutting are the puzzle cards.

Please read the product description and look at the preview. I have shown examples of exactly what is included for the letter Bb, in action. The format of the readers and the response activities is the same for each letter.
Here is what you will get…
1 (6 page) “A Book About the Letter…” emergent readers: These simple patterned readers feature 2 lines of text. The first sentence highlights the letter and word to go with it, for example: Bb is for boy. The second sentence uses the word in a sentence, for example: Here is the boy.
1 (6 page) additional Bb emergent reader title: These predictable reader practices the letter Bb through the use of alliteration, and are based around a bear and his breakfast.
1 set of puzzle cards: Each letter has 4 picture puzzle cards and 6 uppercase/lowercase matching puzzle cards. The letter matching cards have 6 different fonts to help students recognize letters shown in slightly different ways.
