Fall Themed Guided Reading Books for Early Emergent Readers

Don't loose valuable teaching time and wait to start guided reading just because your reading series may lead you that way. Check out our "Fall Guided Reading Books" at either of our on-line stores. These simple books are great to teach early reading strategies such as: 1) Sit in reading position. 2) Point at the word your voice is saying. 3) Use the pictures for clues.

Your students will love these simple books with great text, ready to color pictures, and engaging endings. Or, if you are a parent looking for a way to promote reading at home, these books will offer the needed support you are looking for.


The price is great too! Get these five books for only $4.00.
