Finding nonfiction texts at an appropriate level for kindergarten guided reading groups is a difficult (and often expensive!!) task. With the increased expectation of kindergarteners reading nonfiction texts based on the Common Core Standards, it is crucial that teachers have access to leveled nonfiction books that their students can read (and want to read!!) With that thought in mind, I have created this book (and will be creating many more!!)
This book is written at an approximate level B. This book follows a predictable pattern to support beginning readers.
The text in this book follows this pattern:
Come and see me at the zoo. I am a baby ________.
The following animals are included in the book: elephant, monkey, hippopotamus, giraffe, zebra, penguin, tiger, and leopard.
On the last page, the pattern changes.
On the last page, the text says:
Come and see us at the zoo!
This book can be projected for whole group shared reading or printed to use as a full-color book in your classroom library :)

Thanks for looking and happy teaching!!
