Today I’m sharing a set of three St. Patrick’s Day emergent readers!
Recently a reader requested a set of St. Patrick’s Day Color Me readers. I’m getting these in with about a week to spare … I hope you can use them!
As always, the first book in each set is extremely basic.
A pot of gold
I used the easy Level 1 book with my four-year-old.
Since she knows the word “a,” she could easily pick up the pattern of each book and “read” using the pictures. But I had to tell her a few words – like shamrock.
We went over this page several times. I helped her point to each word as she read.
Finally, it was time to color!
The set includes two other books:
Counting on St. Patrick’s Day
I see one rainbow.
I see two pots of gold.
I see three horseshoes.
I see four hats.
I see five cupcakes.
I see six shamrocks.
I see seven leprechauns.
I Spy on St. Patrick’s Day
I spy a colorful rainbow.
I spy a shiny pot of gold.
I spy a little horseshoe.
I spy a tall hat.
I spy a tasty cupcake
I spy a green shamrock.
I spy a lucky leprechaun. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
As you can tell, the books get more challenging with each set. Choose the level 2 or 3 versions with students who can use the beginning sounds as clues when reading and/or are more adept at “reading” longer sentences.
Why did I just put reading in quotes? It’s because these books are perfect for kids learning the habits of readers – reading from left to right, matching a word from the mouth to a word on the page, using picture clues, etc. But many students who read them would not be able to read the words in isolation.
This is A-okay! We all start somewhere. And building confidence is important for our pre-readers!
