Your students will burst with pride when they use these May themed emergent readers to learn to read and write these 5 beginning sight words: come, that, was, what, where. Since sight word practice is embedded within a book format students practice their reading, writing, speaking and listening too! These May readers align with multiple common core standards and will inspire reading and writing enthusiasm. Be sure to laminate the color books to use for teacher whole group modeling so that you can use them over and over again. Then encourage students to use the targeted word in meaningful print experiences in their individual books. Success is ensured by first having students trace the keyword followed by repeated reading opportunities.This scaffolded support eventually results in students reading and writing the targeted word independently. Be sure to build reading excitement in your classroom by having students read and sign their books with classmates. There is even a parent involvement component too. Try these materials and see how many skills you can integrate with just one book! Authentic assessments are included to assist you in monitoring progress and collecting data. The 6 books included in the May sight word unit include: The Zoo, Plants, My Kindergarten Year, The Summer Songbook, Where Is The Bug, and 123 Flowers. This is perfect for the beginning of kindergarten or review for other grades. Students create original responses so it allows for differentiation.
