This is an emergent reader based on the children's nursery rhyme, Five Little Monkeys. This reader has a twist, in that the monkeys go to school and they love learning. The reader was designed and written with the Pre-K, Transitional Kindergarten, and Kindergarten Student in mind. They are a perfect companion set to use for the teaching of the traditional nursery rhymes that we use with our younger students. They can be used to teach knowledge of basic book handling skills, basic sight words, and vocabulary. I use them for guided reading groups, familiar reading, book box books, centers, and take home reading books.

Students can benefit from reading sight word emergent readers by tracking one to one, identifying spaces between words, putting together letters and sounds to make words, reading sight words in context, and reading appropriate grade level text. The black and white clip art pictures support meaning and also provides opportunities to color the pictures.
