The Emergent Reader Classroom Set contains suggested materials for delivering a full complement of Emergent Reader Series instruction to a small group. Each set includes one Emergent Reader Foundational Skills Teacher's Guide, six word chain card decks, one Emergent Reader Close Reading Teacher's Guide, and six copies of each Emergent Reader Series book. For whole-group instruction, the purchase of additional book sets is recommended.
Emergent Reader Series Foundational Skills Teacher’s Guides contain explicit, systematic, book-by-book instruction that supports teachers in the delivery of evidence-based foundational phonemic awareness and phonics routines with a focus on reading and spelling closed-syllable words, including VC words, CVC words, CCVCC words (blends), compound and multisyllabic words, and words with endings. The instruction also includes teacher-directed analysis of inflectional endings. Once students have been taught these important skills, they can apply what they know to Emergent Reader books. Foundational Skills Teacher's Guides include book-by-book progress monitoring assessments and periodic formative assessments.
