It exposes young primary students to characters, actions and settings in a text setting that they can be successful reading.

"The Three Little Pigs" is my first book in my “Easy Reader Series Books.” They are adaptions of great books for kids that are written on an easier level so they can read on their own. These are great for Guided Reading, Daily 5, Café, any silent reading program, and for taking home. Each book within my "Easy Reader Series" will be in black and white, saving you ink so you can print them for students to use freely in your classroom.
Included with this Easy Reader book is a vocabulary activity, a comprehension graphic organizer for easy summarizing, and a fun retelling craft for beginning, middle and end (great for a bulletin board display!).
