This is a collection of five color-in readers focusing on the high-frequency words in each lesson of Unit 1 of the Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Kindergarten Journeys series.
Simply photocopy the readers double-sided, staple down the left, and use your paper cutter to cut between the top and bottom halves. Students trace the high-frequency words as they go. When finished, they can take it home for additional reading practice.
In my classroom we spend a week reading, coloring, and tracing in the books before they are sent home. By Friday the kids can independently read the book, which gives them a great sense of accomplishment.
