It’s that time of year when your early readers are starting to make jumps in their reading levels. They understand the difference between a letter and a word and how to use pictures for help with word choice. I work with first graders who are having trouble with with letters, sounds, and reading. I create easy readers so my students can practice their concepts of print, sight word use and practice making those picture to vocabulary choices and yes comprehension too. Because I work with many levels of early readers, I have to have assorted levels to meet the needs of my groups.
Did I say I love fall yet? I love fall!!!! I like to infuse the season into reading, writing, and speaking activities. It helps student to understand the world right out of their front door and it is something we are all experiencing at the same time. This makes it easier for my students to add to the conversation and apply the vocabulary to our activities.
This week I made some easy fall readers for my groups including levels A-D. I story per level, fall themed and with a comprehension page to go along with the story. This will go with the other warm up activity included which is a check-in page which allows me to gage their moods and sometimes changes the way I approach my readers that day.
Come check it out and add this little set to your reading groups this week!
