Looking for a simple way to combine math and literacy?! Kids will love learning about shapes, numbers and patterns with these ten math emergent readers! Each set even includes pocket chart cards and follow up practice sheets so you canÂ easily review and stretch studentsâ€™ learning.

## Why Are Emergent Reader Books So Effective?

When children are in the very beginning stages of reading, theyÂ need to learn the basics.Â 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 textâ€¦

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 emergent reader pack includes ten math book sets:

–> 6 shape books (circle, square, triangle, rectangle, hexagon and rhombus)

–> 1 pattern book

–> 3 number books working on 1-10

Each book comes in both color and black and white in case youâ€™d like to save ink.

As students read, theyâ€™llÂ practice reading the common sight words “I, see, a, the, is, your, his, has, look, at, my, that, can, you, have, there, are, on.”

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

Print off theÂ pocket chart cardsÂ 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 theÂ follow up practice pagesÂ to use as guided reading activities, morning work, a literacy center or homework.
