EMERGENT READER: Forest Friends
is a CCSS aligned emergent reader that features woodland animals. The simple, predictable text pattern is:
• A/an [animal name] lives in the forest.
The last page breaks the pattern, allowing you to determine if the student is attending to text or simply relying on the pattern.
Drawing on my experience as a Reading Recovery™ teacher, a first grade teacher, and a literacy specialist, I have included suggestions for skill instruction and provided explanations for techniques you may employ. Topics include:
• High frequency word practice
• Picture cues
• 1-1 correspondence
Also included in this product are sentence strips bearing the 19 words used in this reader. Use the strips in a pocket chart literacy center. Direct your students to recreate the story in the pocket chart. They may need to use the book for support.
