This Christmas emergent reader will help young readers develop a firm concept of word. The patterned text will ensure success as students track and quickly identify words. There is also a word list to be included in the reader for students to quickly recall words from the text. Flash cards are also available for students to manipulate into the patterned text. And just for fun.....there is a signature page for students to collect from their peers after they have read the text. Enjoy and "Let's Start Reading!"
