FREE Christmas Emergent Reader Set

I presented at the Tennessee Kindergarten Conference in Nashville on Friday.  We had discussions about the Common Core and teaching our kindergarten students to use capital letters and punctuation in their writing.

To help your young students be successful in using capitalization and punctuation, they must first learn to recognize it. I created 3 book sets to help your students locate capital letters at the beginning of the sentence, including the word "I" along with locating the period at the end of the sentence.  And to make it fun, they get to color their books too.

Young children sometimes need anchor supports to complete these tasks independently.  I created "I Can" cards for each book.  Copy and laminate these cards and place in your literacy center.  Teach your students to refer to the "I Can" cards as a way to teach following directions.
