Description

In Geologist Danny, Danny collects different sizes and colors of rocks in his yard. Danny is a geologist. Geologists learn about the earth by studying the nonliving elements that make up its surface. Geologist Danny, part of the Scientist Danny Set, is an E leveled, Emergent reader.

Level E Readers

Geologist Danny is an E leveled reader, based on independent evaluation by Fountas & Pinnell using the F&P Text Level Gradient™. The title is appropriate for Emergent readers (Levels D-E). Level E fiction titles typically feature stories about simple one-dimensional human characters or animal fantasy where the animal characters have human experiences, exhibit emotions, talk, and have the ability to reason. The printed text in Level E readers continues to be strongly supported by illustrations. While the vocabulary and themes are familiar to the reader, at this level they can be examined in more depth. Additionally, Emergent readers no longer rely as heavily on repetitive language patterns.

For students reading at Level Evoice‐print matching is smooth and automatic. They no longer track text with their fingers. They’re able to read pages with up to six lines of text and increased sentence complexity. The text can include prepositional phrases, adjectives, simple contractions, and possessive words (using apostrophes). Some of the sentences on a page can be longer (containing more than six words) and carry over to a second line of text. Level E readers are able to consistently self-monitor, and cross‐check other sources of information to self‐correct while they are 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.

 

Emergent Readers

The guided reading Emergent reader category includes Levels D-E. Emergent readers have a good understanding of the alphabet and early phonics that help them decode unknown words. They are developing comprehension skills and word-attack strategies, and are comfortable with a significant number of high-frequency words. Emergent readers are more flexible in their ability to handle varied placement of text on a page and understand most punctuation. They’re also able to recognize that reading has a variety of purposes and reading different kinds of books is enjoyable for distinct reasons. Readers at the Emergent level are able to understand a wider range of punctuation and can read dialogue, reflecting the meaning through their phrasing. They’re also able to recognize and understand inflectional endings, like s and ing, and the effect those endings have on root words.

Readers at this level 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. MaryRuth Books offers many fiction and nonfiction/informational leveled readers, suggested and used by Reading Recovery® and Guided Reading educators, when teaching Emergent readers.

Scientist Danny Books

Scientist Danny books are simple texts that explain basic ideas about nature and science. Each book contains original photography and gently introduces young readers to the sciences that study the natural world and the relationships between organisms and their environments. The titles in Scientist Danny range in guided reading levels from C to F, making the collection appropriate for Early Emergent and Upper Emergent readers. The Developmental Reading Assessment (DRA) has a range of from 3-8 for the set, making it an economical way to engage early readers and encourage their advancement. For more specific information on levels, please see the main product pages for each of the four individual titles in the set. Titles include Ornithologist Danny, Botanist Danny, Geologist Danny, and Entomologist Danny.

The suffix logist comes from the Greek word logy, which means “the study of.” Words ending in ologist indicate a person “who studies” something, often an academic subject.

    I have used and really like the Danny books. The students LOVE Danny! We have so much success in using these because the students have fun discussing them. I integrate science and math into my literacy as much as possible, so any book with topics related to these subjects is helpful.
