I have made these for my school and students. Guided and leveled readers can be really really expensive so I thought putting some packs of leveled readers might be helpful to teachers out there. These reading passages are leveled using the SMOG and Flesch Kincaid Grade Level. As with all things this is dependent on the background, prior knowledge and reading level of your students. Some will find it easier some will find it more difficult. So they are designed for you to use your professional judgement.

Who are they for?
I have started to make some readers based on themes. This theme is wild animals and there will be others to come on the site soon as well. These are aimed at Kindergarten and grade 1 to 2 students and i have tried to keep the text at lower reading levels. There are editable versions on the store if you wanted to increase the difficultly for your particular students.
There are eleven different cards here and nine different wild animals.
Reading and writing together is a great way to cement knowledge and with students natural affinity towards wildlife this is a good subject to use to encourage that.
They images are below so you can get an idea of the content.
What are they for?
They can be used as part of general lessons or as part of a Guided reading programme ( which is what i am going to try to build up here) A set of reading cards for schools to be able to target reading levels for their students and implement a cost saving reading system to help them better cater for learner diversity. There are multiple sets of these on the site some are multi – topic and graded, others (like this one) are set on a particular subject. In this case wild animals. They are constantly, work allowing, added to so it maybe worth booking marking the site.
They have a couple of cards that contain the same written content but have different pictures ( jsut in case you have a preference.
The phonics resources on this site also go well with this and they are also available in both free and editable versions
This is the PDF version, and this is FREE!
Here is the download file for the PDF version of the game if you want the editable version to change questions etc it is in the store for 1.49 normal or 1.00 when it is on sale ( most of the time) for 5 cards as most of the time these guided readers publishers try to sell it for 5 USD a book and I personally think that is a crazy price for student books!
Most of resources can be premium downloaded below, they are all editable so you can adapt them for your, classes, students and schools. It also helps me with the costs of running the website!
The editable version is so you can change it to suit your classrooms and students. It costs a dollar.
