This is an emergent reader for our community helpers unit that will be available soon. It is designed so that it can be printed, double stapled and cut to make two books at a time. All pictures are in black and white so children can color the books themselves.
In our classroom we rewrite the sentences on sentence strips and place with pictures in a pocket chart. After shared reading practice daily, we have the students read the books chorally and independently on Friday. Then the children color the pictures and take the books home for further practice.
