Yes! The readers for Foundations A are included in the back of the Foundations A Workbook.
Unlike most beginning readers that ask students to "read" words by looking at the picture and guessing, the Foundations A Readers do not present any pictures with the words initially. Instead, students read the word or phrase, find the matching picture, cut it out, and glue it in place.
Not only is this an excellent early comprehension activity, but it also encourages the understanding that reading is about words and sounds. Foundations A students love the ownership they feel in creating their own book and the interactive component of building the readers! Parents and teachers love that their students are actively decoding words!
Here are the wonderful beginning texts that students will be reading in Foundations A:
- Dogs and Cats
- Dogs, Cats, and Rats!
- Dogs and Cats 2
- Fun Dogs, Fun Pups
Students begin using the readers in Lesson 25, shortly after they begin using the phonics and phonemic awareness skills they have been learning to decode and encode words. The Foundations A Teacher's Manual will let you know when to introduce each reader and where to find it.
