- This emergent reader, “Goal!” is connected to several CCGPS listed below. This 44 page book is designed so that you can copy the book, cut it in half, staple, and then it is ready for use. Of the 44 pages, 22 pages include a title page “Goal” with a boy graphic, and then each of the remaining 21 pages contains black and white pictures (boy graphics) with a ten frame at the top of each page and a sentence under the picture (He scored (number) goal). Of the 44 pages, the remaining 22 pages include a title page “Goal” with a girl graphic, and then each of the remaining 21 pages contains black and white pictures (girl graphics) with a ten frame at the top of each page and a sentence under the picture (She scored (number) goal).
This emergent reader focuses on sight words he/she and number words (zero-twenty).
This reader also focuses on the use of an exclamation mark as students read with excitement in their voices as goals are scored. Each page has an exclamation mark except for zero.
Look at the preview to see each page included.
Even though most soccer games only end up with a few goals per game, this reader ends with 20 goals being scored; however, the fun soccer theme is used to help motivate students to read.
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 to add details. 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. It also includes math standards with a ten frame on each page with a matching number of soccer players.

About the Seller
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.
