Beach Emergent Reader
I am all about ease of use and quick prep when it comes to most learning activities. I know that in a classroom (and home), time is valuable, and we don’t want to spend it all stapling and cutting.
That’s what I love about this beach-themed emergent reader – it’s super easy to prep! Just print double sided, cut in half, staple, and you have two books ready to go!
How to Use the Emergent Reader
The book kicks off with the question “What will I see at the beach?” Then, each page contains sight words and a predictable pattern, where you can read about all of the things you may see on a trip to the beach. Things such as a sandcastle, beach ball, umbrella, crab, and shells. The picture support is there to help kids read the changing word as well.
I like to use this emergent reader while working in small groups. We read through the book together, using the fun pictures to help us identify the words. When we are done the kids can keep their copy and proudly show off their coloring at home!
RELATED RESOURCE: Ocean Animals Writing Center Activities
My kids get so excited to see that on the cover of their emergent reader it doesn’t say “Name” but instead, it says “Colored by” – making them feel like little illustrators. And I love that my students are engaged, and that I can send them home with books to keep!
