Pre-K Tip Sheets
Resources to Improve Literacy in Pre-Emergent Readers
Learn how to use our high-quality resources to set your pre-emergent students on the path to reading fluently. The Pre-K Tip Sheets contain detailed suggestions on using materials for whole-class, small-group, or individual instruction as well as centers, extension activities, and assessments.
Why Use Pre-K Tip Sheets
For students to become successful in reading, they must start by learning the necessary foundational skills. The Pre-K Tip Sheets can help your students take the first few steps on that journey by providing ideas for how you can optimize existing Reading A-Z materials, including Phonological Awareness Lessons, Alphabet Books, and High-Frequency Word Books, for whole-class, small-group, or individual instruction. There are also sections on small group instruction and guided reading, center and extension activities, and assessments.
