Short Vowel Books (Individual Vowels) for Emergent Readers is a set of ten books that are perfect for early readers who have a grasp of consonants and are learning to blend phonemes to make words. There are two books for each vowel. The stories and illustrations are engaging and based on a topic. Each of the ten books has five pages with one or two sentences per page. The illustrations are in color, but maintain integrity when printed in greyscale. There are no blackline masters with this set. This package is a bundle of Set One and Set Two of Short Vowel Books (Individual Vowels) for Emergent Readers.
The vocabulary in this set of ten books is primarily CVC words that use the target vowel, high frequency sight words (mostly Pre-Primer & Primer), a few number and color words and a few words with blends or consonant digraphs. Students can usually figure out the blends. The back page of each book has an alphabetized vocabulary list of the words that are used in that book.
Print the books on 110 lb card stock. Print pages 2 & 3 of this document on the two sides of a single sheet of card stock. Print pages 4 & 5 back to back, etc. When you print, choose ACTUAL SIZE in the Adobe Reader print options. If you forget to choose ACTUAL SIZE, your pages will not be centered. Once you have the pages printed, score down the middle and assemble. Staple with a long arm, saddle or booklet stapler. Because of the thickness of the card stock, you may want to trim the open edges of the booklet to make them even.
The ten titles in this set are: Cats (short a), Hats (short a), Pets (short e), Hens (short e), Pigs (short i), Kids (short i), Frogs (short o), Moms (short o), Pups (short u) and Bugs (short u).
