Long Vowel Books (Individual Vowels) for Emergent Readers is a set of five books that is 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. The stories and illustrations are engaging and have purpose. Each book has five pages with three to six sentences. Each book has a topic. The books can be printed in color, greyscale or black and white line.
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.
Due to the size of this product, you will download it as zip file. A zip file will easily open on a destop, laptop or tablet. Inside the zip file you will find another folder. The individual files within this folder are .pdf. There is a .pdf file for each book and a .pdf file with introductory and printing information.
The individual book files are .pdf. Print the books on 110 lb card stock. To make a color copy of a book, print pages 1 & 2 of the book document on the two sides of a single sheet of card stock. Then print pages 3 & 4 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 want to print in black line, print pages 5 & 6 back to back, print pages 7 & 8 back to back and then assemble.
The five titles in this set are: Rainy Day Fun (long a), At The Beach (long e), Let’s Go Fly a Kite (long i), Boats Float (long o) and The Blue Clue (long u).
