Gratefulness Throughout the Year
Thanksgiving season is a great time to talk about gratitude with children. I made this little Thanksgiving emergent reader and would love to share it with you. The free printable emergent readers will be a great addition to your Thanksgiving themed unit. They provide a simple way to discuss gratitude. But, don’t just use the books in November. You can use them year round.
The Easy to Assemble Emergent Reader
I enjoy making all kinds of learning games and activities for kids. I don’t mind spending time on the construction of the activities because they can generally be used over and over again. Emergent readers, however, are something that I never enjoyed assembling. I just didn’t like all the copying, cutting, collating, and stapling. That’s why I created these easier-to-assemble emergent readers.
The little books print 4 per page. To assemble you just need to print, place a set in a pile, staple the edges, and cut to into the 4 separate readers. Check out the video below to see a quick tutorial. It’s great for all of you visual learners who like to see how it’s done.
Perfect for Your Literacy Center
When you download the little book you will see that it includes a cover and 6 pages. Print them all, or only print some. The pages include simple, repetitive text…perfect for little learners.
I also included a page that can be customized by your kids with their own pictures and/or words. You can even print multiple copies of this page and eliminate the other pages to let kids customize their entire book. This could be a great keepsake for parents.
