Emergent Reader Sight Words BUNDLE (the, of, and, a, to)

Emergent Reader Sight Words BUNDLE (the, of, and, a, to)

SAVE 18% off of these readers when purchasing this bundle.
​This resource is now available in an Emergent Reader Sight Word BUNDLE saving 25% off of the individual readers.

This 141 page bundle includes five emergent readers, one reader for each of the sight words (the, of, and, a, and to) which are connected to several CCGPS listed below. 

You can find PREVIEWS for each of the five emergent readers included in this bundle at the links below:

Emergent Reader: Sight Word: the
Emergent Reader: Sight Word: of
Emergent Reader: Sight Word: and
Emergent Reader: Sight Word: a
Emergent Reader: Sight Word: to

Each of the five readers include this description:

This 13 page book includes a title page with bubble letters spelling the focused sight word for students to color, then 10 pages include a black and white picture at the top of each page with a sentence using the focused sight word. There are two more pages asking students to draw a picture of their own and write a sentence of their own using the sight word, and then the final page asks students to trace the sight word three times and then write it three times on their own on the blank line. After this, there are 13 additional pages with the exact pictures and words as the first 13 pages. The only difference is that on this second copy of the book, the sight word being focused on is dotted on each page for students to trace. 

The pages of the book are not numbered giving the teacher flexibility of removing pages not desired when using in small guided reading groups for differentiation. 

This 13 page book is designed so that you can copy the book, cut in half, staple, and then it is ready for use. 

Students can benefit from this reader by tracking print, identifying spaces between words, identifying particular letters of the alphabet, recognizing sounds (beginning, middle, and ending) in each word, and reading sight words and grade level text. For extension activities, students could add another sentence to each page giving details about each picture shown. The black and white pictures allow students the opportunity to color the pictures. This reader is great for guided reading groups, homework, or literacy center activities. 

***This is the first bundle of 20 bundles for emergent readers for the first hundred popular sight words (high frequency words) in the works. The readers will build on the words focused on in the previous readers as much as possible. 

ELACCKRF1a. Follow words from left to right, top to bottom, and page-by-page.
ELACCKRF1d. Recognize and name all upper and lowercase letters of the alphabet.
ELACCKRF1b. Recognize that spoken words are represented in written language by specific sequences of letters.
ELACCKRF1c. Understand that words are separated by spaces in print. ELACCKRF3a. Demonstrate basic knowledge of one-to-one letter-sound correspondences by producing the primary or many of more frequent sounds for each consonant. 
ELACCKRF3c. Read common high-frequency words by sight. 
ELACCKRF4. Read emergent-reader texts with purpose and understanding.
