This emergent reader is coordinated (matching) to go with Pocket Chart Sentences: Sight Words (I, have, a) and Color Words (Pencils)
This emergent reader, “My Pencils” is connected to several CCGPS listed below. This 14 page book is designed so that you can copy the book, cut it in half, staple, and then it is ready for use. The 14 pages include a title page “My Pencils,” the next 11 pages contain black and white pencil pictures at the top of each page and a sentence under the picture. The black and white pictures allow for the students to identify the color word on the page and color the pencil the correct color. The last two pages include pencils pictures and a blank line without words for higher level students to write their own sentences or they can be taken out of the book if desired.
This emergent reader focuses on these sight words: I, have, a and color words (black, blue, brown, white, gray, green, orange, pink, purple, red, and yellow).
***The pages are NOT numbered to give the teacher flexibility of using the pages wanted/needed or to make books with fewer pages for some students which provides DIFFERENTIATION.

Here are the sentences for each page:
Page 1: Title: My Pencils

Students can benefit from this reader by tracking print, identifying spaces between words, identifying particular letters of the alphabet, recognizing sounds (beginning, middle, and ending) in each word, and reading sight words and grade level text. For extension activities, students could add another sentence to each page to add details. The black and white pictures allow students the opportunity to color the pictures. This reader is great for guided reading groups, homework, or literacy center activities.
