Learning About Emergent Readers

emergent reading skills for preschool and kindergarten

PROVIDING CHILDREN WITH SUCCESSFUL PRE-READING EXPERIENCES CAN BOOST THEIR CONFIDENCE ABOUT READING AND ENCHANCE THEIR WORD/PRINT AWARENESS SKILLS.

Emergent readers use predictable text, repetition, and really cute pictures! This is also a great spring theme preschool number book for kids for them to practice reading and build counting skills!

Show your child how to point to each word on the page while they are saying the words. It’s a good idea to model and say the words aloud for the student before they take off on their own.

This fun Spring Counting Book can be used with a small group of students, one-on-one with a child, and even read in pairs.

In addition to learning about beginning reading skills for preschool and kindergarten here are some more ideas for what you will be teaching children with the Spring Counting Book:

  • Counting and one-to-one correspondence.
  • Types of animals and plants found in the spring.
  • Vocabulary and word knowledge.
  • Subitizing (knowing the amount without counting the objects).

Why Is It Important For Kids To Count?

Preschool counting doesn’t have to be hard. The more practice your child has with counting, the more they will learn about the meaning of numbers.

Subitizing

When children can identify the number of items or dots by first glance this can help quickly identifying patterns in numbers.

Sequencing

If a child knows the sequence of numbers you can ask them to start counting at number 4 and they will be able to start with 4 and continue with 5, 6, 7.

Making Comparisons

Practicing counting can show children different amounts of objects compare to each other. For example, which has more and which has fewer.

Adding and Subtracting

After a child can successfully count, they can start using operations like adding and subtracting.
