5 School themed readers for kindergarten, first grade and ESL / ELL learners!
Parts of a Classroom (the newest addition to this set) is a one word per page vocabulary reader in color and line art
✔a second line-art version for tracing the beginning sound of each word
✔color and line art labels for putting up around the classroom are included
✔a variety of Write The Room options allow variation for student readiness
The original four readers are Sight-Word-Stages readers:
These high-interest stories target specific sight words 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), finding humor or a way the child might relate to the story helps to ensure comprehension and interest.
The story comes alive in the initial sharing of the color copy. Following up with the child’s own black line copy for them to color and keep is usually well-received and they are proud to take it home to show off their reading, (and writing, depending on the version you have selected to use!)
The Sight-Word-Stages Reader and Writer Sets support emergent (and pre-emergent) readers and young students learning to recognize, remember and print early sight words. Directional reminders in the bottom corners of each page, pictures clearly support the meaning, and a black and white versions are included for students to color and keep for familiar reading.
