Description

The Baby Elephant’s Trunk Small Group Set includes six small Baby Elephant’s Trunk books and one lap-sized Baby Elephant’s Trunk Lap Book. This set is designed for small group reading instruction. Reading together in small groups allows for differentiated teaching, student support, and opportunities to focus on specific needs.

In Baby Elephant’s Trunk, a trunk is more than a nose to an elephant…it’s a hose, a finger, an arm, and a straw. See all of the useful things Baby Elephant can do with his trunk, including using it to give a hug to Mother Elephant. Baby Elephant’s Trunk is part of the Baby Elephant Stories Set. This illustrated six book set includes: Baby Elephant’s Trunk, Baby Elephant Runs Away, Baby Elephant Goes for a Swim, Baby Elephant is Thirsty, Berries for Baby Elephant, and Lunch for Baby Elephant. Baby Elephant’s Trunk is a B leveled, Early Emergent reader.

The lap-sized books may also be purchased individually.

The 8-1/2 x 11″ sheets are printed in 2-colors on sturdy 110# white index stock and designed to be a portable way for students to do letter or word work whether they’re learning at home or in the classroom. The set includes one sheet of upper case and one sheet of lower case letters, plus several blank tiles so the sheets can be customized. Vowels are printed in red. Consonants are printed in blue. The font used for the letter sheets is student-friendly. Printed dashed lines between the individual letter tiles make cutting them out easy.

Level B Readers

Baby Elephant’s Trunk is an illustrated B leveled reader, based on independent evaluation by Fountas & Pinnell using the F&P Text Level Gradient. The book is appropriate for Early Emergent readers (Levels A-C). Level B titles typically feature simple characters and colorful pictures that support the printed text. The vocabulary is already familiar to the reader and most pages have just two to five lines of text, with phrases that are repetitive, to help children build confidence as they read. Level B titles can also be helpful tools in supporting and encouraging students who are struggling or reluctant to read.

Early Emergent Readers

Early Emergent readers benefit from books about familiar topics that use carefully controlled text and repeated vocabulary. Illustrations are important keys to readers at this level, supporting the decoding of new words. Early Emergent readers are still building a vocabulary of high-frequency words. Having a large vocabulary of frequently used words enables reading that is more fluent and sounds like natural speaking language. Developing readers should be reading both fiction and nonfiction/informational books. Reading nonfiction helps young students develop background knowledge, which increases their comprehension ability by enabling them to make sense of new ideas. Additionally, informational texts have the potential to motivate students to read more by tapping into their personal interests.

MaryRuth Books offers many fiction and nonfiction/informational leveled readers, suggested and used by Reading Recovery® and Guided Reading educators. Readers at all levels benefit from reading both fiction and nonfiction/informational books. Reading nonfiction helps young students develop background knowledge, which increases their comprehension ability by enabling them to make sense of new ideas. Additionally, informational texts have the potential to motivate students to read more by tapping into their personal interests.
