FANCY NANCY BOOKS ARE STUPENDOUS. (That’s a fancy word for “great.”) Cultivate a fascination with words while building vocabulary and reading skills with Fancy Nancy books by Jane O'Connor. Nancy likes everything fancy and that includes her vocabulary. Every book provides readers with exposure to higher-level vocabulary words (such as reveal, refreshments, confide, signature, foliage, and more) that are presented in a fun and engaging manner and provide students with "kid-friendly" definitions of these new vocabulary words.
This resource includes 51 Fancy Nancy ACCELERATED READER titles with A.R. reading levels of 1.8-3.4. You may choose to use this resource as a listening center for all of your students or as a support for your struggling readers. Or you may select one book to highlight each week, reading it aloud to your students, selecting vocabulary to master in their speaking &/or writing, and providing the listening center for students to listen to several times to master those words.
Using this resource is simple. The student simply scans the card and is taken directly to the read aloud. All QR codes are linked to ad-free video versions of the read aloud. I use QR codes in my first grade classroom. I use older iPods & the free Crafter QR code app. I adjust the app settings so that as soon as the app is opened, it will scan the code and go directly to the SafeShare URL which is ad-free. The child pushes the play button and the story begins. No iPods? No problem. I have also propped an iPad on a table for a small group of students to view together without headphones.
