I only have a moment to post today, but I wanted to share a very simple, yet very effective way to help your young reader understand where to start and stop reading (print awareness). I call it the “green light, red light” method.
Just add a green dot under the first word of the page (green means go) and a red dot under the last word (red means stop), like I did with this insect-themed emergent reader. This works best on emergent readers, with only one sentence on each page. You can view and download (for free) some of my other emergent readers here.
