Emergent readers can learn to read using a variety of strategies like predictable text. Predictable books can help emergent readers learn patterns of words and use pictures in context to "read" the words on a page.
While many early literacy classrooms are provided with predictable readers to use in the classroom, it is important to tailor the learning to students. These predictable books engage students in learning to read. The black and white graphics allow students to color customize their own book, making the learning more concrete and meaningful for individual students.
Students have fun reading their predictable books and coloring them to make the book their own. They will build their own library collection of books they can read independently at home.
