This is an emergent reader with simple text for early readers. I use this emergent reader with my kindergarten readers, but it could be used in pre-k to have the students practice identifying sight words and tracking print. It could also be used in first grade for struggling readers. The text in this emergent reader is repetitive and follows the pattern of Eric Carle's Brown Bear, Brown Bear book. It may be a supplement to a study of this book.
This emergent reader is about shapes and colors. Each page focuses on a new shape and color. It has 5 basic shapes: square, rectangle, triangle, circle, and star.
These books print 2 per page to save on ink and paper. We read these books together and they color them. When my students are finished reading and coloring this emergent reader they put it in their book baskets as another text they can read during Read to Self and Read to Someone during our Daily 5 rotations.
