This fun and free emergent reader about reading vocabulary is great for introducing your kindergartners and your first graders to reading. It is one of 4 books associated with our WORD OF THE DAY SEPTEMBER CALENDAR. We created these monthly thematic readers to go with our calendars so students would learn great content vocabulary when they read.

We wanted to offer this book for free so you could see how helpful the real photos are as well as all the ways you can use the empty boxes. We have also found it very helpful to introduce students to this vocabulary, so you can use this vocabulary as you teach reading. I add these emergent readers to their book baskets for practice. The students also love to sing the song.

We have included a single sheet with the words if you want to add it to their poetry notebooks.

It is also great for Distance Learning because we have included a guide on what to do with these books. You can help parents teach about science and social studies in these simple readers as well as practice reading, learn vocabulary and do phonics all with this one resource!

Read here how I used these books with my daughter. She loves them!

Interactive format makes it easy to target phonics skills during guided reading

There is an empty box next to the real photos that allows you to differentiate with your students. We have included a teacher's guide with ideas on how to use the empty boxes or you may have some great ideas of your own. We use them to teach phonetic features that are in the vocabulary words.


There are also comprehension questions in the back of all of our thematic emergent readers.
