The Emergent Reading Kit
This kit includes a teacher manual and blackline masters for decodable books and reading portfolios.
Students use their portfolios daily in reading groups, as well as for independent practice. The portfolios are filled with pages that display letters, CV blends (to introduce coarticulation), CVC words and sight words, as well as sentences. Students read and reread these pages for automaticity. Additionally, students practice letter formation, followed by spelling at the word and sentence level. After many days of practice, students then read books with these new and previously learned CVC and sight words. Finally, students write one-sentence summaries for each book. This program is designed specifically for Kindergarten students and as an intervention for grades 1-3.
