- Emergent Reader: Sight Word: they
This emergent reader for the sight word "they" is connected to several CCGPS listed below. This 13 page book includes a title page with bubble letters spelling the focused sight word for students to color, then 10 pages include a black and white picture at the top of each page with a sentence using the focused sight word. There are two more pages asking students to draw a picture on their own and write a sentence on their own using the sight word, and then the final page asks students to trace the sight word three times and then write it three times on their own on the blank line. After this, there are 13 additional pages with the exact pictures and words as the first 13 pages. The only difference is that on this second copy of the book, the sight word being focused on is dotted on each page for students to trace.
Title page: they (bubble letters to color)
Page 1: They are hula-hooping.

Page 9: They are eating marshmallows.
Page 10: They are in the canoe.
Page 11: creative sentence writing
Page 12: tracing and writing sight word
A few of the sentences are on two lines allowing students practice sweeping back to the left to finish reading the sentence.
The PREVIEW shows all pages included.
The pages of the book are not numbered giving the teacher flexibility of removing pages not desired when using in small guided reading groups for differentiation.
You may want to divide this particular reader into two books of eight pages counting the title page and the two additional pages at the end. The first five graphics are about a field day, and the last five graphics are about camping. Pages can be used or taken out as needed since the pages are not numbered, providing flexibility for the teacher.
This 13 page book is designed so that you can copy the book, cut in half, staple, and then it is ready for use.
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.

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.
