Emergent Reader Concept of Print Series
The Emergent Reader Concept of Print Series consists of six (8.5" x 8") books for small group modeling and instruction. Each book will concentrate on a specific concept of print. The concepts of print highlighted in the series are: left to right directionality, return sweep, one-to-one speech to print matching, concept of a letter, concept of a word, and punctuation. The books will have support structures and/or manipulatives to focus attention on print conventions and to encourage correct responding. Ideas for supporting and reinforcing the concept will be included on the inside of each book's cover.
