I’m so excited about these little emergent readers! There are 26 14-page books in the set, and each one uses simple sight words and picture support. (Click here or on any of the pictures to grab your own copy of these great books!)

They are super easy to put together. Simply print all pages double-sided (that’s important, the pages won’t match up if you print single-sided). You will need two pieces of paper for each book. Cut each page in half along the dotted line. I found it much quicker to cut two pages at a time. Then you place the top portion of the pages on top of the bottom portion and your page numbers should be in the correct order. Fold the book in half and staple through the middle. That’s it, you now have a complete book! I found it took a little less than an hour to print and assemble the entire 26 books.

These emergent readers are designed for children who are beginning to read. They can be used as a one-on-one reader, as books for a small guided reading group, or as a take home book. Each book features a simple, repetitive sentence that uses common sight words. The noun changes in each sentence and there is picture support to help young readers to read the new word. Begin by sitting with your reader and showing them the cover. Ask if they can read any of the words or identify the picture.

Turn to page one and show the student that the sight words are the same as those in the title. Page two lists all of the nouns with a picture for each one. Ask the student to identify each picture and look at the words.

Page three uses the same sentence that is used in the book title. If the student struggles to read the sight words, remind them that these words are the same as those on the cover and ask if they can remember what the book is called. Continue reading all of the pages, using the pictures to help read the nouns.

Pages 13 and 14 again list all of the words used in the book, without the picture support. Ask your student if they can read any of the words on these pages. Ideally, your student should be able to now read the sight words.

Other features of these books:

  • Each noun begins with the same letter. For example, in the book “Look At The Ant”, the sentences are “Look at the ant” (picture of an ant), “Look at the acorn” (picture of an acorn), etc. The words “ant” and “acorn” are the nouns, both begin with the letter A, and both have a picture to represent them.
  • The sentences for books A-M and mostly repeated in books N-Z. Begin with book A and work your way through the alphabet. Hopefully, by the time you read book N, your student will be able to recognize some of the words and will be reading with more confidence.
  • The Letter X book is slightly different. It is the only book to feature the word “say” and each word ends with the letter X rather than begins with the letter X.
  • The books are the perfect size for little hands.
