Big Z ~ Little z ~What Begins with Z? is Level 2 in a series of guided reading books for our youngest readers. Biter Biscuit Books® are books designed with emerging literacy in mind. Level 2 books will focus on book handling skills, concepts about print, hearing sounds in words and the alphabetic principle. Level 2 Biter Biscuit Books® have just one or two words per page so the young reader can handle the print independently.
Included in every Alphabet Book is an outline font for lower case letter handwriting practice. Including the handwriting along with the guided reader allows for the child to develop the correct motor pathway for letter formation while connecting it to the sound the letter represents. This will directly correlate to fluency in hearing and recording sounds in words as the child's writing skills progress.
These books are easily reproducible with two books available on an 8.5 x 11" page so every child in your classroom will have access to just right books throughout the year. They can become part of a child's classroom book basket or his at home library, allowing him to read these emergent readers again and again. Don’t let your young students miss out on this great resource!
