Sprouts is an efficient way to produce individualized student-created text for the beginning reader. A variety of topics is included in each pack and the text pattern varies to provide real reading work.
How Does Sprouts Work?
Step #1: Select appropriate titles (8-page booklets) for your students by matching their known words to vocabulary in the story. Each booklet comes with matching word and picture stickers.
Step #2:These booklets are filled with high frequency words that become the anchors to guide the child through the text. Students complete the text by:
- using the word and/or picture stickers provided
- writing in their own words and/or drawing their own pictures
Step #3: After students complete the booklet they can practice basic vocabulary within their completed text.
The materials in Pack 1 begin at the lowest reading level.
The materials in Pack 4 are at the highest reading level.
These interactive sticker books give students a fun way to practice their writing skills!
