Chickens and the Fox Bag Image 2

While supply lasts: Buy the 7-title The Chickens and the Fox set and receive a free Chickens and the Fox tote bag. Made exclusively for MaryRuth Books, the full-color tote bag is 8″W x 11″H x 4″D, with red woven-web 5″ drop handles. The smaller size of this cheerful bag makes it perfect for carrying books to and from school. It can also provide a fun place for storing them in the classroom. (Bee not included.)

Since meeting the chickens and the fox in the first title of the popular series, The Chickens and the Fox, young readers have seen the sly fox try over and over to outwit the clever chickens. In Chicken Guard Dog, the fox tries to outsmart the chickens once again. But, this time the chickens get help from a friend when the fox digs a tunnel under their fence. Chicken Guard Dog, part of the illustrated The Chickens and the Fox set, is a G leveled, Upper Emergent title.

Level G Readers

Chicken Guard Dog is a G leveled, Upper Emergent reader (Levels F-H), based on independent evaluation by Fountas & Pinnell using the F&P Text Level Gradient™. Level G readers use clusters, blends and digraphs, as well as consonant and vowel letter-sound relationships to solve words. They connect words that mean the same or almost the same, and use context and pictures to figure out the meaning of unfamiliar vocabulary. Level G readers can quickly and automatically recognize seventy-five or more high-frequency words within continuous text. When reading out loud, they are able to demonstrate (without using a finger to point at words) appropriate rate, phrasing, intonation, and word stress.

At Level G, progressing readers are still reading books with three to eight lines of text per page, but the print size is smaller and there are more words per page. With early reading skills under control, readers can follow slightly more complex story lines. Level G readers understand dimensional characters, identify with them, and feel empathy. They can talk about a character’s motivations and feelings, and can sometimes predict what may happen next based on knowledge of the characters or the type of story they’re reading.

Add a 2-sheet MRB Letter Set to any order for only $1.00 each set

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.

Upper Emergent Readers

Upper Emergent readers recognize that reading has a variety of purposes and reading different kinds of books is enjoyable for distinct reasons. They should be reading both fiction and nonfiction/informational books. Reading informational books provides a different type of literacy benefit to early readers. 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. Encouraging students to explore a broad array of informational texts can help them see that the real world is as interesting and amazing as any fictional one. MaryRuth Books offers many fiction and nonfiction/informational leveled readers, suggested and used by Reading Recovery® and Guided Reading educators, when teaching Upper Emergent readers.

    Last year I discovered the Chicken and the Fox series. I will use these much more now. Who’s in the Chicken Coop? was excellent for helping one of my students become more expressive in her reading. It was a turning point for her.

    Dear Ms. Coulton,
    My Reading Recovery student, Melissa, loved reading the books in The Chickens and the Fox series. After reading them all, while waiting (hopefully) for additional titles, Melissa decided to write her own book featuring these characters. As you can see, she was influenced by your craft and sees herself, not only as a reader, but also an author! Thank you for inspiring many of our young readers and writers. I hope you enjoy The Sneaky Fox.
