These two books are predictable, emergent readers focusing on early reading skills while incorporating science content. Using strong academic vocabulary but doing so in a way that allows even the youngest learners to remember it strengthens students' understanding and these books make it easy for teachers to do that. Focusing on the difference between vertebrates and invertebrates while inviting the student to make a connection between themselves and the text also builds comprehension skills. Fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension are embedded into these science content area readers.
To make books, simply print, fold in half, stack pages together, and staple along the non-folded edge.
