Fall is here, and we have been having a lot of fun learning and exploring already with our fall centers. Fall is such a fun time in Kindergarten, especially when it comes to reading. We are exploring letters, sounds, concepts of print, and so much more! These fall emergent readers are a great support for us to work on word tracking, sight words, number words, and color words. Best of all, they have an engaging fall theme, and after kids color them – they can take them home for more practice!
Fall Emergent Readers
This set of books includes 3 easy to prepare titles for your kids:
- 1, 2, 3, Fall!
- Funny Pumpkins
- Look at Fall!
Just like all of our printable emergent readers, these books are super simple to prep.
Just print double sided, cut in half, and you have two copies ready to go!
First up, we welcomed the first day of fall by checking out some things we may see with “Look at Fall!”
The repetitive text and sight words look, at, and the are great for the early readers in my classroom working at identifying these words and tracking print from left to right.
They get to check out some fun fall items in the book, plus, on the cover instead of “name” it says “colored by,” which makes them feel quite special as they get to color in the illustrations!
“Funny Pumpkins” is probably a class favorite – because they haven’t quite seen pumpkins like these before!
This reader is wonderful not only for reading the sight words here, is, and funny, but it is also great for its focus on color words.
You will be able to see how well they understand the text they are reading in this book by how they color the pumpkins, as they will need to read the color words to complete the pictures.
Finally, we work on our number words with “1, 2, 3, Fall!”
We focus on sight words I and see, and then we count up some fun fall items!
I sometimes get asked “well aren’t they just memorizing??” Sometimes, yes. But this doesn’t mean that books aren’t valuable or you shouldn’t read them. You just need to think about what your purpose is with them.
For me, the goal with these books is for my readers to build up their tracking (by reading each word – sometimes we even use fun pointers) and to also build up their confidence in reading.
Kids need to engage in books that they know they CAN read successfully as they are developing their reading skills, and these books give them those stepping stones.
Kids love them, and parents do too as they see them come home!
