! Now I have a set of 3D Tens Frames to put in a Math Station. Check them out - I LOVE them!
Another project that I finished today was putting the final touches on the Alphabet Emergent Reader Library that I've been working on. Finding books that kindergartners can read independently at the beginning of the year can be a little tricky, because emergent literacy skills such as text tracking, sight word recognition and letter/sound associations are just starting to blossom. I want my students’ first experiences with independent reading to be successful so they can think of themselves as readers from the get-go. With that in mind, I created a set of 26 Alphabet Emergent Readers. Each book focuses on one letter sound, has pointing fingers under the words to reinforce text tracking, and follows a 1, 2, or 3 word text pattern that uses only one of three basic sight words (a, the or my). All of these elements put together will allow even the most beginning readers to say, “I can read it myself!” These are great to use when establishing routines for independent reading during Readers' Workshop in the beginning of the year. I'll send a free set to the first three comments and the whole set will be half price on TPT for the weekend. You can a grab a freebie book here. (The Letter A.)
Have a fantastic night!
