"Big H ~ Little h- What Begins with H?" is Level 2 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 2 books have one or two words per page so that the young child can begin to identify words on a page and isolate beginning consonants by pointing. Level 2 books focus on isolating beginning letter sounds, 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 automaticity of hearing and recording sounds during independent writing.
These little books are easily reproducible so they can become a part of each student's book basket or go home to be read again and again.
Don't let your early childhood classroom be without these valuable early literacy resources!
