It's so important to get GOOD FIT books into your kiddos' hands! We have a TON of great guided reading book sets at school that work really well for our CAFE strategy groups. BUT...what about getting these books into our kiddos' homes?? NOT SO MUCH!
Our librarian loves us, but not THAT much! We can't let the littles take these perfectly suited books home since they are library sets. Our kiddos DO, of course, get to check out library books, but these are not always "Good Fit" books where they can apply all of their new strategies to help them read.
SO...we came up with some EMERGENT READERS that are PERFECT for getting books into our kiddos' hands that they can TAKE home and actually READ!!! It can be so frustrating for our guys to know all these new strategies and then when they open their library book...it's just FRUSTRATION-VILLE because the strategies aren't working...not a GOOD FIT!
These readers use almost all of the PRIMER and PRE-PRIMDER Dolch words, making them perfect books for most of our readers at this point in the year. We included an easier version and a more challenging version for 5 of the readers, since we do have some kiddos who are already in the 100 word club. (Read more about our word clubs here!)
These readers are great for working in guided reading strategy groups
on standards such as tracking left to right/top to bottom,
reading sight words, blending unknown words, using picture clues,
reading for meaning, and much more!
Use the You Be the Author version to work on writing standards such as spacing, capitalization, punctuation, blending, sentences, and more!
So we hope these might be helpful to you too! We love watching our kiddos discover the JOY of reading and finding out just how powerful words can be!
