Why Are Emergent Reader Books So Effective?

When children are in the very beginning stages of reading, they need to learn the basics. For instance:

  • Letters are clumped together to make words
  • Spaces are placed in between words to separate them
  • Start reading on the left side of the page and move right
  • Use picture clues to figure out unknown words
  • Look for repetitive text…

The list goes on and on.

Emergent reader books purposefully keep things very simple so that students can practice all these skills without getting overwhelmed.

The books have just a few words on each page, the text repeats itself and the pictures closely match the words.

Motivating Kids to Practice

Because emergent reader books keep things SO simple, it can be a challenge to make them motivating.

But this set of math emergent readers changes all of that by using high interest, timely and kid-friendly topics to build a strong foundation of reading skills.

Peek Inside

The mega bundle includes 56 DRA level A books.

Inside you’ll find:

–> 6 Color Books

–> 5 Summer Books

–> 5 Fall Books

–> 5 Winter Books

–> 5 Spring Books

–> 5 Science Books

–> 5 Holidays Books

–> 10 Short Vowel Word Family Books

–> 10 Math Books

Each book comes in both color and black and white in case you’d like to save ink.

As students read, they’ll practice reading the common sight words including “I, see, a, the, is, your, his, has, look, at, my, that, can, you, have, there, are, on…”

The playful reading pointers are a simple, fun way to help them remember to point underneath each word as they read.

Print off the pocket chart cards so you can work on reading the text as a whole class or during your read around the room center.

For children who are ready for a stretch, print the follow up practice pages to use as guided reading activities, morning work, a literacy center or homework.

    Is this no longer a freebie? It’s listen under your free resources but I don’t see a download link… just the link to purchase in your shop? Would love to have access for my kiddos in my library!

      Hi Amanda,
      I apologize for the confusion. No, the emergent reader books were never a freebie.
      However, they can be purchased in our shop. They are wonderful additions to classroom libraries!
