It’s been a while since I shared a new set of Color Me readers. Since many of you have requested them, I thought Valentine’s Day would be the perfect time to share another one.
The download comes with three levels of readers, but I used just the simplest one with my Four. Since I recently taught her the word the (using our favorite preschool curriculum, Reading the Alphabet), I knew she could handle this book.
We walked through each page. She read each one with support.
I called attention to the on each page. When she was unsure of the picture, I helped her use the beginning sound.
For example, if she was stuck on the above page, I could say …
“What letter does the word start with? Yes, a p. What sound does p make? Let’s try it. /p/, /p/ … What word could that be?”
The truth is that my just-turned Four is still shaky on many of her letters sounds, so this prompting doesn’t usually work for her. But I know it will eventually click as long as we keep at it.
When we finished reading, she was very happy to color all the pages.
Then we read it one more time – and she read it for Daddy when he came home from work.
As you can see, the book comes in three levels. Each gets slightly harder. Level 3 requires students to read color words before coloring the pictures.
I hope your learners enjoy this set of Valentine’s Day color me readers!
