Emergent Reader: Sight Word: a ---
This emergent reader for the sight word "a" is connected to several CCGPS listed below. This 13 page book includes a title page with bubble letters spelling the focused sight word for students to color, then 10 pages include a black and white picture at the top of each page with a sentence using the focused sight word. There are two more pages asking students to draw a picture of their own and write a sentence of their own using the sight word, and then the final page asks students to trace the sight word three times and then write it three times on their own on the blank line. After this, there are 13 additional pages with the exact pictures and words as the first 13 pages. The only difference is that on this second copy of the book, the sight word being focused on is dotted on each page for students to trace.
This book is designed to show students the lowercase "a" when the word is in the middle of a sentence and the uppercase "A" when it is the first word in a sentence.
The 10 pages with picture and sentences are:
I see a van.
A van is blue. (both pages have van picture)
I see a vest.
A vest is green. (both pages have vest picture)
I see a rig.
A rig is red. (both pages have rig picture)
I see a log.
A log is brown. (both pages have log picture)
I see a jug.
A jug is yellow. (both pages have jug picture)
The pages of the book are not numbered giving the teacher flexibility of removing pages not desired when using in small guided reading groups for differentiation.
This 13 page book is designed so that you can copy the book, cut in half, staple, and then it is ready for use.
Students can benefit from this reader by tracking print, identifying spaces between words, identifying particular letters of the alphabet, recognizing sounds (beginning, middle, and ending) in each word, and reading sight words and grade level text. For extension activities, students could add another sentence to each page giving details about each picture shown. The black and white pictures allow students the opportunity to color the pictures. This reader is great for guided reading groups, homework, or literacy center activities.
