Farm Emergent Readers
Informational Text Farms
Are you gearing up to do a non-fiction unit of study with your students this Spring?
If so, and you are planning on having your students learn and read about farms and/or farm animals, this 'farm-tastic' pack is sure to engage your young readers and foster independence!
This set of readers was developed to be used in my kindergarten class because I could not find age appropriate non-fiction readers for my students! I want to encourage independent reading, focus on non-fiction, learn about farms and farm animals and have my students feel like confident and independent readers and information gathers! After searching long and hard with no luck, this set was developed! I hope it helps you in your search!
Please download the preview to see 1 page from each of the readers!
These readers work great as a compliment to research and gathering information, as well!

The new Common Core Standards require that students read 50% Non-fiction text, but text at lower levels is very hard to come by! I plan on making more non-fiction readers in the future, so please consider following me to receive notification of future uploads!
