I love these little readers. I have bought level a - d over the years and it helped my son get into reading. The books are only about 8 pages long so they don’t feel so intimidating for a new and unsure reader
my kindergartener was struggling to use the tools available to beginner readers (e.g. picture clues and sounding out words), so I bought this set for more practice at home. The past couple of weeks, I have seen significant improvement at home, and her teacher reported this morning that she's also seen improvement at school. The stories are cute, interesting, and my kindergartener and I are enjoying them together.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THESE FIRST LITTLE READERS!!! I thought I would have to hire a tutor for my granddaughter Brie. We have had this and The Level C Readers for a couple of months and Brie is reading everything in sight. Her confidence is on 💯. She reads these to me while I prepare dinner and clean the kitchen. Her teacher told me about similar, costing over 100 dollars these are just as good, again, just as good. Very well put together and easy handling for her.
Got it for a kindergartener to read. This book set is just perfect! Very age appropriate. Interesting stories for the target audience. It only has 8 pages or so thus it adequately keeps the attention span of a young one. Also the repetitive wording helps with word familiarity and site word learning. Each book is staple bound; paperback. Careful handling is needed for a long term use.
I tutored two little girls in first grade. At the beginning of the year they were very behind. They were progressing but after I introduced these, it seemed to click. They would come to the session with enthusiasm. After our lesson, they would begged to read 2 books instead of 1 which we only had time for. I decided with teacher's permission to extend the sessions to accommodate them. At the end of the year I got a large index card and wrote "Nyla can read." I then in different colored markers wrote down all the titles they had read.
My granddaughter wanted SO much to read, so I ordered this set. I did not get the earliest collections as she is now doing a bit of reading. These are perfect. The story is short and has great illustrations, so she can memorize some and get clues for hard/new words. But now she realizes the word she was about to say is not what is written! And she is so happy and proud. She reads to her little brother. I find they are of slightly varying difficulty. I sorted out the ones with fewer words and more repetition for starters and will move on to ones with longer sentences, bigger words and less repetition.
Ordered Level D for my granddaughter who just finished kindergarten. As a former curriculum specialist I was looking for leveled readers that reinforce sight words but also provide context and picture clues to help the child decode new words. I was pleasantly surprised with these books at a nominal price! The stories are as cute as can be with limited vocabulary. They give the child an opportunity for repetitive practice of the new words. I highly recommend these to provide practice at hone or during school breaks. They are probably not constructed well enough for classroom teacher use. I wax so pleased to find this set!!
Yes to this! I bought this for my nephew who has been struggling to read and he loves it. The night it came in he read two books. He felt so successful to find a look at his level. He was so excited he brought the books to school to read. He even read at school .. which he didnt like doing. I'm so happy. I will be purchasing more.
