In this download you will find 4 different student readers. Each reader has a copy for the student to keep in school and also a Home Reader for students to take and read to someone at home. Also included are sight word flash cards and picture cards to go along with each reader.
I use these student readers in my small groups. I introduce the reader by writing the sentences on sentence strips and then place them in a pocket chart, displayed with the picture cards. The students use a fun pointer to practice concept of word as they point to each word and read the story. The reader is then printed out and kept in the students’ own personal folders (the ones with the brads on the inside), along with the flash cards for the students to practice and reread.
The readers are repeatedly exposed to certain sight words in each reader, however the sentence structure varies throughout the reader encouraging the child to focus on the actual text and not just rely on a predictable pattern.
I also randomly listed the sight words reinforced in the reader on the bottom of the page. After the students complete the reading of the story, they then go down and read the words in isolation.
I hope you enjoy these!
