Emergent Reader Bundle A-Z (26 Books)
These vowel emergent readers focus on words with short /a/ in the middle rather than words beginning with Aa.
This emergent reader, My Aa Book, is connected to several CCGPS listed below. This 9 page book is designed so that you can copy the book, cut in half, staple, and then it is ready for use. The 8 pages consist of a title page “My Aa Book,” five pages including a black and white picture that has the short /a/ sound in the middle of the word at the top of each page and a sentence under the picture. These five pages include two sentences “What is this? It is a…” (then the word to match picture is shown, such as “What is this? It is a hat.”). The 5 short /a/ pictures included are hat, fan, tag, ram, and map. At the end of the book, there are three optional activity pages (for differentiation) which may be included depending on the level of your students. You may want to include all or some of these for intervention pages or extension activity pages. One of these optional pages requires students to circle the uppercase and lowercase letter being used in the book, one requires students to write 5 uppercase and 5 lowercase letters, and the last one requires students to write 5 words that have short /a/ in the middle of the word. For an extension activity, students may also add another sentence to each page giving more details about the picture. Students can benefit from this reader by tracking print, identifying spaces between words, identifying particular letters of the alphabet, recognizing sounds (beginning, middle, and ending) in each word, and reading sight words and grade level text. For extension activities, students could add another sentence to each page giving details about each picture shown. The black and white pictures allow students the opportunity to color the pictures. This reader is great for guided reading groups, homework, or literacy center activities.

I am a kindergarten teacher with 22 years of teaching experience! I received my Doctor of Education degree in Teacher Leadership from Walden University in June 2010. The title of my doctoral study is "Writing Conferences in Kindergarten: Using Feedback to Enhance Student Writing." My passion is teaching writing to my students and providing feedback for their writing experiences. I love teaching kindergarten. It is amazing to see students enter the classroom not even knowing how to hold a pencil and watching them become readers and writers by the end of the year. I love teaching in small groups and rotating student groups with literacy centers and math centers.
