A pond is a small body of still, fresh water surrounded by land. Usually ponds contain shallow water, with marsh and aquatic plants and animals. In The Pond, meet some of the animals who live in and around a pond. The Pond, part of the Let’s Explore Set, is a B leveled, Early Emergent, nonfiction reader.

Level B Readers

The Pond is a nonfiction/informational B leveled reader, based on independent evaluation by Fountas & Pinnell using the F&P Text Level Gradient. This 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.

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.


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.
