These adorable little books—written to correlate with Guided Reading Levels A, B, and C—are just right for beginning readers as well as readers with just a little experience! The simple, predictable stories on favorite topics such as birthdays, pets, friendship, school, favorite foods, and playtime include high-frequency words, rhyming, repetition, and supportive illustrations that give emergent readers the help they need to get a great start in reading! Includes age-perfect reading response reproducibles for every mini-book.
Let children read the book aloud softly as you listen in. Although they are reading independently, you are there to provide support and scaffolding. For example, you might guide children to use word-solving strategies, such as “mining” context clues, when they get stuck. Whenever possible, try to provide prompts and encouragement without interrupting the flow of children’s reading.
