My Pet is Funny: Level A/1 Sight Word Reader and Activities set features colorful pet owners showing off their unique and entertaining pets!

This silly, leveled sight-word reader was written with the earliest readers in mind. These high-interest stories target specific sight words while allowing early readers to maintain attention to the meaning in the pictures.

Reading the color version in a supportive setting (i.e. guided reading lesson), finding humor or a way the child might relate to the story helps to ensure comprehension and interest.

The story comes alive in the initial sharing of the color copy. Following up with the child’s own black line copy for them to color and keep is well-received and they are proud to take it home to show off their reading, (and writing, depending on the version you have selected to use!)

Reassembling sentences with colorful word and picture puzzles that match the reader make a fun literacy center that can be recreated at home with a copy students can color themselves!

Be sure to check out the preview for each title, and the features list below!

The Sight-Word-Stage Readers and Writing Sets are an ideal way to start a personal classroom Guided Reading library. Keep the colored copies to reuse year after year, and give students a personal copy to color and keep as familiar reading. There are always enough copies, and missing books are easily replaced!
