Learning to read takes time and lots of practice. Part of that journey is recognizing and reading sight words, like color words, fluently. Strengthen color recognition and color word fluency with these engaging, low-prep Color Words Emergent Readers for Pre-K & Kindergarten! Your students will love reading the color words and coloring the fun pictures to really make the books their own!
Color Words Emergent Readers
My students love when we turn reading practice into an interactive activity. These emergent readers allow kiddos to write in and color the books (something we do not usually do), making these readers extra exciting and engaging. Plus, after all of their hard work, they get to keep them and take them home to show off proudly!
These Color Words Emergent Readers are super easy to prepare! Just print double sided, cut in half, staple, and voila – you have two books ready to go! This is great for saving paper.
This resource pack contains 11 emergent reader books, each with 7 pages and focusing on a specific color and color word. They are great for whole group instruction, guided reading groups, or independent reading!
The following color books are included:
These readers contain predictive text patterns to support early readers, and picture support as well!
How to Use the Color Words Emergent Readers
I typically use the emergent readers in small groups with my students, depending on their needs. We go through and highlight or underline the color words and identify additional sight words.
After we practice reading the book together, I then have students color the pictures independently and put the readers in their class book boxes for continued independent reading.
Another great thing about these printable books is that I can easily run off an extra copy if I want the students to also have one at home for additional practice!
