Sight words are such a HUGE part of the PreK, Kinder, and 1st grade curriculums, and sometimes teaching them can feel repetitive and boring. We get it. It’s why we have SO many amazing sight word resources for you.
You can’t miss out on all the cute pumpkin, ice cream, and snowmen sight word activities we have available. And not to worry, we’ve got you for the holidays as well! Mix things up for Thanksgiving, Christmas, St. Patrick’s Day, and Valentine’s Day with fun-themed sight word games and activities for Kindergarten students.
These are all super great activities and games for teaching sight words to little learners in an isolated context. But eventually, students also need to recognize and read sight words in context. Don’t worry, we’ve got you there too!
Introducing: Emergent Readers. With a simple sentences book, vocabulary words for a word wall and engaging worksheets for mastery, these emergent reader activities are the best deal. They make a fantastic guided reading resource, can be used in reading and writing centers, or as small group lessons. There are so many ways to use them and we have every sight word needed!
Want to hear something even better? We have an Alphabet Emergent Readers and Activities Bundle waiting just for you. This bundle not only gives you 26 weeks of content for teaching, but it also targets beginning sounds for EVERY letter. This bundle is the perfect low-prep resource for your little learners.
Alphabet Emergent Readers and Activities Bundle
With all 26 letters being covered, this Alphabet Emergent Readers and Activities Bundle for Kindergarten is the perfect addition to your ELA centers or as your guided reading content. Each letter gets an Emergent Reader book featuring that letter and two to three sight words.
“The Letter A Book” highlights the sight words “see” and “the” and lists nouns such as alligator, ax, alien and astronaut. This gives your early readers sight word practice and enhances their beginning sound recognition.
Along with the teacher and student version of each emergent reader, you also get vocabulary word strips for each emergent reader that can be used in a variety of ways. Put them on your word wall and use them within a whole group setting. Utilize them in guided reading to review sight words or to scaffold for students who need extra support. You can also use them at your writing center for copying, writing prompts, or even tracing.
Last, but certainly not least, each emergent reader comes with worksheets. Use these to enhance your lesson, as homework, or use them to differentiate for students with different capabilities.
Inside You Will Find:
All 26 letters, A-Z, come with this Alphabet Emergent Readers and Activities Bundle for Pre-K and Kindergarten. Inside this bundle you will find:
- 26 emergent readers, A-Z, each focusing on 1 or 2 different sight words
- 26 larger print teacher books for modeling and group reads
- 2 Pocket chart activities for each emergent reader to practice reading
- 3 differentiated worksheets for each emergent reader to practice reading and writing the sight words.
Each emergent alphabet reader is illustrated with bright and clear clipart that will draw the students’ attention. The two differentiated worksheets also use clipart to give students a visual support while reinforcing sight words. Don’t forget to utilize the vocabulary word strips (also with visual support) on your word wall, guided reading groups or at your writing center!
Getting the Alphabet Emergent Readers Ready
This ABC Emergent Readers and Activities Bundle for our youngest learners is packed full of activities and content. We’ve made it as easy and convenient as possible to prep and organize these activities.
What you’ll need for prepping:
Once you’ve purchased and downloaded your copy of the Alphabet Emergent Readers and Activities for PreK, I recommend printing on cardstock and laminating so as to have maximum durability.
Teacher Copy of the Alphabet Emergent Readers
We highly suggest printing your teacher copies in color, then laminating and stapling together. With large, bright pictures and simple sentences, this teacher copy book can be used multiple times or even stored in your classroom library for future reading. Each letter has its own unique emergent reader with focused sight words and correlating beginning sound vocabulary words.
Student Copy of the Alphabet Emergent Readers
An exact, but smaller, copy of the teacher version, the student alphabet emergent reader can be printed two at a time. This smaller version is perfect for little hands to hold and manipulate as needed. Simply cut the paper in half and staple the pages together. These mini books are perfect for little hands.
Pocket Chart Activities
Each of these Alphabet Emergent Readers also comes with two correlating pocket chart activities. These activities include sentence strips that incorporate the targeted sight words and the vocabulary words listed out. Print, in color or black and white, onto cardstock and laminate. Once laminated, use your paper cutter to separate the words. The best way to keep your word strips organized is by using paper clips or rubber bands.
There are three different worksheets that provide levels of differentiation and accommodations. This allows you to meet each student’s abilities and provide a tailored lesson for every student. Simply print these off onto paper and they are good to go!
I highly suggest organizing each Emergent Reader and its corresponding activities in a Ziploc bag with clear labeling for quick access.
