French emergent readers help students ease their way into the new language. Images that are fun AND descriptive help kids feel confident about their understanding of written French because the illustrations support the understanding of the text.
Repetition with controlled variation is also another important aspect of these French emergent readers.
Above all, reading will feel less daunting for kids just getting started in learning French!
French Emergent Readers
Each of the readers available on our For French Immersion Teachers Pay Teachers store focuses on one high-frequency word. You can also refer to them as “les mots fréquents” or “les mots usuels”.
Each reader sells for US$2, but I know that most teachers will need more than one. With those teachers in mind, I’ve come up with a way for them to have all the emergent readers for the lowest cost possible and that’s how the bundle originated.
By purchasing the French Emergent Reader Bundle, the buyers “lock in” the price. In other words, you pay once and get all additions free.
This is currently a regular bundle as it is now complete.
As I’ve gotten many questions about how this works, I’ve created a quick FAQ:
1) What’s a growing bundle?
That’s a zipped file that contains all of the emergent readers I’ve created so far: 50.
It’s “growing” because every time I create a new emergent reader, I add it to the bundle. I also readjust the price.
2) If I buy the bundle, do I get the new readers for free?
Yes! That’s the beauty of growing bundles. By the end of March the bundle will have 50 titles and it will be complete, but you won’t have to pay anymore. You’ll be getting the new readers for free if you purchase it now. The sooner you get the bundle, the more savings you’ll be making. The bundle has stopped growing – it’s complete. If you buy it now, you’ll be paying US$50 for 50 readers.
This bundle will not grow anymore after March 23rd, 2016.
3) How can I download the new readers?
You’ll have to re-download the file. While logged into your Teachers Pay Teachers account, go to “My TpT”, click on “My Purchases”, find the bundle in your list and re-download it.
4) How will I know that you have added new readers?
If you’re following my TpT store, you should be receiving notifications of new releases. If you see that I’ve released an emergent reader, it will be included in the bundle soon. The bundle is now complete 🙂
The best way to receive our news is to subscribe to the For French Immersion newsletter and you might also check out our French Emergent Readers Pinterest board, which was created just to showcase the emergent readers.
5)How many readers will the bundle hold in all?
The bundle includes 50 titles in a zipped file.
6)What titles are included in the bundle?
The titles (sight words) included are:
- En Hiver
- Au Printemps
- En Été
- En Automne
- je SUIS
- je VOIS
- je VAIS
- je PORTE
- je MANGE

Alternatively, you can check out the following Pinterest board where all the titles have been pinned.
