Summer Easy Reader

Students feel like such big kids when they are able to read. Easy readers are the perfect tool to help them start! Sentences are simple, and the pictures help students figure out words that they may not know.

This Summer Easy Reader is great to add to your classroom library. But you could also use it in small groups, as a way to track progress with individual students, or in partners. Have your students bring these home, so they can show their families what a great reader they are!

Students can make the books their own by coloring the fun pictures in this Summer Emergent Reader.
