Thank you for downloading "Busy Bees". This book is a bonus book to my Long Vowel Books (Individual Vowels) for Emergent Readers. These books are perfect for early readers who have a grasp of consonants and are learning to blend phonemes to make words. There is one book for each long vowel. This bonus book highlights long vowel e. The stories and illustrations in the set of books are engaging and have purpose. Each book has five pages with three to six sentences. Each book has a topic. This book can be printed in color, greyscale or black & white.
The vocabulary in this set of five books is CVC words, words that follow long vowel patterns/rules, high frequency sight words (mostly Pre-Primer & Primer), a few number and color words and a few words with blends or consonant digraphs. Students can usually figure out the blends. The words within the text that have the target long vowel sound have the vowel pattern underlined within the word. The back page of each book has an alphabetized vocabulary list.
Print this book on 110 lb card stock. Print pages 2 & 3 of this document on the two sides of a single sheet of card stock. Print pages 4 & 5 back to back. When you print, choose ACTUAL SIZE in the Adobe Reader print options. If you forget to choose ACTUAL SIZE, your pages will not be centered. Once you have the pages printed, score down the middle and assemble. Staple with a long arm, saddle or booklet stapler. Because of the thickness of the card stock, you may want to trim the open edges of the booklet to make them even. Remember, you can print in greyscale, if you like.
Please also check out my other books for emergent readers (see Custom Categories: Books For Emergent Readers) in my Back 2 Basics TpT store. These books include a short vowel set, two mixed short vowel sets, a long vowel set & some freebies. Coming soon: a set of books for emergent - early readers.
