Winter has arrived, and we have been having a ton of fun learning with easy-prep, seasonal activities in our small groups and centers. These Winter Emergent Readers are a great support in the classroom to help us work on sight words, color words, decodable words, and more. Best of all, after the kids read and color them – they can take them home to practice!

*You can grab these fun emergent readers right now in our shop, or hop on over to purchase them on Teachers Pay Teachers!

These printable winter emergent readers are great for early readers to use as guided reading books or take home books in Kindergarten!

Winter Emergent Readers

This pack of books includes 3 super fun titles for your emergent readers –

  • Winter is Here!
  • The Snowman’s Hat
  • Ready For Winter

These books are SO easy to prep, which makes them perfect for the classroom (or home too!).

Just print double sided, cut in half, and you have two copies ready to go!

Winter is Here!

First up, I printed off “Winter is Here!”

The front of each book says “colored by” instead of “name” – which makes the students feel quite special!

The repetitive text in this book is great for early readers who are working on tracking print, and recognizing the sight words are and here.

Winter vocabulary is used for a fun and engaging twist, and my kids love to color the pictures.

This winter emergent reader strengthens recognition of the sight words are and here.

The Snowman’s Hat

Our second reader, “The Snowman’s Hat,” is a fun reader that encourages the kids to recognize and read color words!

"The Snowman's Hat" will have your kids recognizing and reading color words!

They read the words to discover which color to make the snowman’s hat.

For readers who need extra support in my small groups, I highlight the color words in the correct color. This allows them to self-check their work! We also refer to posters hanging in our classroom that have color words and colors on them.

Ready for Winter

Finally, our last winter reader, “Ready for Winter,” has us imagining that we are gathering up some winter items!

"Ready for Winter" focuses on sight words I, will, get, and my.

This reader focuses on sight words I, will, get, and my.

The vocabulary is based on a winter theme, and kids have the pictures for support.

Encourage students to point to each word to ensure that they are truly reading and not just repeating from memory.

Often with simple readers you will find kids do memorize the text. However, specific text is still valuable and you should still read the book (sometimes I get asked this by parents). This is especially true if you find that those kids still cannot read the sight words out of context or on their own.

The goal is to have them work on their tracking. Encourage them to point to each word (use fun or silly reading pointers to make it more engaging) to ensure that they are truly reading and not just repeating from memory.

Your kids will love these winter emergent readers! The best part is that they will help build confidence in your early readers and they can take them home to proudly share their reading progress with their families!
