I Love My Dad! Emergent Reader Mini Folding Book

A few years ago, I shared a fun little Father’s Day emergent reader booklet with you. My readers have since come to really enjoy the mini folding book format, so this year, I made a version of the older mini book in this format: I Love My Dad! Emergent Reader Mini Folding Book.

Mini folding books require no duplex printing, no gluing or stapling, and minimal cutting.

The mini folding book has six pages plus a front and back cover. The front cover has the title “I Love My Dad!” plus an image of a dad and a girl. The six inner pages show six different Father’s Day-related images and matching simple sentences.

The back cover lists the words that I used in the book:

  • Pre-primer sight words: I, my, me, is, the, made, a, big, for, to, play.

  • Primer sight words: he, do.

  • Second-grade sight words: best, reads.

  • Other words: loves, dad/daddy, card, hugs.

The VIP version of this file also includes a black and white mini folding book for extra coloring fun and saving on ink.
