This product was created to provide teachers with materials to reach struggling readers and contains both materials for parents and materials to use the texts as part of a homework program. Teachers can send home one copy of a leveled text and the matching parent letter every week. These books can also be used to teach the students within the classroom. Please note the parent letters are not as effective as guided reading lessons (by a reading expert like you!) as they are parent instructions.
What is Included in the Parent Pack?
- 20 Emergent Readers Reading from levels A to H.
- A Parent Letter explaining how to use the books and letters.
- A note to the parents with each text containing nightly activities (Monday through Thursday) for reading and rereading the book. A picture sequencing activity is included for every book.
How is this Pack Intended to be Used?
These books are intended to be sent home to help support parents as homework. Parents may say they are not comfortable “teaching” their child to read. These books and parent letters provided text-specific prompts and guidance for supporting their child!
Other Important “Stuff”
Please note these levels are not endorsed. The levels are paired (A/B, C/D, E/F, G/H) and are ordered within each level from least to most difficult in text complexity.
These texts are not as “copy-friendly” as some of my previous books. This is to allow for more pictures to support the text and larger font sizes. Both of these are necessary to support the reader. The book will copy 3 pages front to back. Print, fold in half, and staple for simple assembly. Explicit printing instructions are also included.
