My D Book ~ Level 1 is the lowest level in a series of guided reading books for our youngest readers. Biter Biscuits Books® is a series of little books for students just learning book handling skills and concepts about print. The level 1 books do not have any words so that the focus of the guided reading instruction is letter sound, letter identification and letter formation. Each book in the series, levels 1-4, has outlined font for handwriting practice on each page since reading and writing are reciprocal skills. This provides students with a multi-sensory experience when learning to read and write using Biter Biscuit Books® ~ Alphabet Books.
The illustrations are black line images so the students can color them after the guided reading lesson is over. This adds to the ownership of the book for the child. Additionally, the children can use colored pencils when writing the letters on each page and repeat the activity later in the week or at home with other colors. This allows for greater practice and will lead to writing fluency during independent writing.
Biter Biscuit Books® are reproducible, so you can make these guided reading books for each child in your classroom-this year and in the many years to come.
They truly are a life-time teaching tool!
No early childhood classroom should be without these valuable resources!
