Printable Booklets for Emergent Readers

Early childhood teachers tend to spend hours of time searching for just the right books for their students for both shared reading and guided reading literacy experiences. Once a book is located, it is sometimes even more difficult to find multiple copies, books that can be sent home for further reinforcement, and/or books that can be made even more personal with student drawn artwork, etc. Below, you will find a growing collection of free printable booklets for use in your classroom or home school. The booklets are unleveled reading materials for emergent readers.  They correspond to typical shared reading stories, focus on word families, single in on sight words, or contain concepts for science, math, and social studies commonly used in early childhood themes/lessons.

Description of Word Family Resources

Word Family Booklet
The Word Family Booklets are written in repetitive sentence format and incorporate sight words.   The Stage 1 Booklets are designed to be slightly easier for students to read and use simple initial consonants and maybe an initial blend. The Stage 2 Booklets are designed to be a little more difficult and use mostly initial blends. Each booklet also contains a Word Family Companion worksheet that further enhances the word family study.

Teacher Version
The Teacher Versions are designed to have each picture and corresponding text printed on an 8 1/2 by 11 horizontal sheet of paper.

One Sheet
The One Sheet Versions contain the same word family stories that are in the booklet format.  These were created to save paper.     Printable Cover

One Sheet Version

audio MP3 and Quicktime
A few Word Family Booklets also contain an audio MP3 and/or a Quicktime movie. These multimedia versions were created by Waleska Batista from Everyone Learns.

Word Maker and Sight Word Find
-TOP: Use letter tiles or magnetic letters to form new word family words.
Word Maker

-BOTTOM: Say a word and then have your child find it in the sight word table.  Let them place a pom pom, button, or another small object on each word as they find it.  Then, have them remove the objects one at a time and say the words again.

Practice Sheet and List Words
Practice Sheet
: Either let your child write the letters needed to make a word to match the picture or let them cut and glue the correct letters.
Word Family List Words: How many words can your child read?  How fast (and clearly) can they read the list of rhyming words?

Word Family House / Pictures and Words to Sort
Children can sort pictures into one or more word family houses according to sound, may read and sort the words by word family, or may read the words and match them to the corresponding pictures.  Choose which word families you wish for your child to practice.

Sound Sort:
Word Family Sound SOrt

Word Sort
Word Family Word SOrt

Word and Picture Sort
Word Family Word and Picture SOrt

 

Word Family Match
Have your child cut apart the pictures at the bottom.  Then, have him/her read one word at the top of the page, find the corresponding picture, and glue it under the matching word.
Word Family Match

Word Family Mini Booklet
The Word Family Mini Booklets are one page sheets that have six words from the same word family with corresponding pictures.
Word Family Mini Booklets

Suggested Use: Introduce the word family by reading the title page (bottom right corner).  Read the other words with your child. Have your child color and cut out the pages along the dotted lines.  Place the house title page on the front and staple.  Decide ahead of time if you wish for your child to think of another word family word to draw and write.  Then, see if your child can read all the words to you!

All of the resources on this page are free.  If you would like a single PDF containing many of these resources (and a couple new ones), please consider purchasing Word Family Word Work at our Teacher's Notebook shop...
