Teaching emergent readers?

This 2 pack of Level A high-interest, school-themed stories target specific sight words (I, like, we, at) while allowing early readers to maintain attention to the meaning in the pictures.

Reading the color version in a supportive setting (i.e. guided reading lesson), making self-to- text / text-to-self connections (i.e. coming to school) helps to ensure comprehension and interest.

The stories come alive in the initial sharing of the color copy. Following up with students’ own black line copies for them to color and practice printing sight words in context is well-received, and they are proud to take it home and share.

Reassembling sentences with colorful word and picture puzzles that match the reader make a fun literacy center that can be recreated at home with a copy students can color themselves!

Personal Classroom Guided Reading Collection:

The Sight-Word-Stage Readers and Writing Sets are an ideal way to start a personal classroom Guided Reading library. Keep the colored copies to reuse year after year, and give students a personal copy to color and keep as familiar reading. There are always enough copies, and missing books are easily replaced!

Reading with a group?

A visual checklist is provided to keep students on task with their Sight-Word-Stages readers and follow-up activities, with the final item reminding them to practice reading their book, and reassembling the sentence strips (also included in color and black + white).

Features of these reader sets:

✔color version, and duplicated black and white copies for students included in 3 versions: 1) original reader 2) trace the sight word, 3) fill in the sight word 4) some sets have one word to trace, and another to fill in
