Valentine’s Day Emergent Readers

I love how children get excited about the holidays. So why not use that excitement to practice reading? What better way than a book that is on their level and made just for them. It is important that we make reading fun for students. As a result, it is our hope as teacher, that they will develop a love of reading and books.

There’s no prep work required, which is great for a busy teacher! Students fold the books in half, long ways (I call this a hotdog fold because the paper is long, like a hotdog). Next they fold the paper in half again (I call this the hamburger fold). There are lines on the books to help students with folding.

Students write their name on the front cover. On the inside pages, students can color the pictures and read the text in their books. You can also have students use a yellow crayon or highlighter to focus on a particular sight word.

On the front cover you’ll see three stars. Students color a star each time they read their book. It is so sweet to see the joy budding readers feel as they color each star. You can tell they really feel a sense of accomplishment.
