This emergent reader set on famous women in history a great way to introduce kids to character education and social emotional curriculum and to celebrate Women’s History Month in March and International Women’s Day.
Students can read about 12 different famous women in history in this emergent reader student book that comes in color and black and white as a beginning activity.
They will illustrate the last page to show their favorite kind girl/woman (themselves, mother, aunt, grandmother, teacher, coach, etc.).
These emergent readers use simple language, sight words, and “big” adjectives to describe an essential concept: women are kind AND are also many, many other powerful, wonderful things. (The language in this book is harder than our typical emergent readers but with discussion, students can understand “big” adjectives like: determined, passionate, inspiring, confident, and ambitious.)
This is perfect for Pre-K students, preschool students, TK students, Kindergarten students, first grade students, and 2nd grade students, 3rd grade students, and 4th grade students.
Then you can continue the conversation with the teacher discussion starters during morning meetings or as further writing prompts or as your question of the day.
Students can then connect this social-emotional learning activity with creative writing by writing one or both of the included writing prompts.
This Kind Women in History Emergent Reader Book Set comes with:
- student copy of the emergent reader in color and black and white
- discussion starters to continue the conversation
- 2 creative writing prompts to connect to the topic of being a kind person during writing time.
