Class Rules Personalized Emergent Readers

Books and Giggles

Regular price $3.50

Back to school emergent readers meet editable name books! Beginning readers will love seeing their own name on every page of their little printable book about rules and procedures. The repetitive text and easy-to-recognize pictures will ensure their success.


Plus, for Fall 2020, there is also a separate version featuring children practicing social distancing. One page shows them wearing masks, and another shows them staying 6 feet apart. The remaining pages are the same except I moved the clipart around so that the students aren't close together. You will receive a ZIP file with the original version and the social distancing version as 2 separate PDF files for easiest use now and in the future.


⭐EASY PREP These books are easy prep for you. Just type each student’s name once, and the names will automatically fill in on every page of the book. There’s no re-ordering of pages – everything prints out ready to just cut and staple.


⭐MORE ABOUT THESE EMERGENT READERS The books print half-page size, and each booklet is 13 single-sided pages long, including the cover and a parent letter. They are black and white, and perfect for coloring in. Use these whole class or in small groups, and then send them home for additional practice.


The book supports the introduction of these sight words: can


The original version text reads as follows, with clear picture support for each non-sight word. (view the preview file to see all of them!):

[Name] can listen to the teacher.

[Name] can walk in a line.

[Name] can work quietly.

Note: I wanted to include lots of possible rules and procedures for you to choose from. You can just print what you need.




All you need to edit student names is Adobe Reader (which is free, and there’s a link to it in the file just in case you don’t have it already)


The fonts shown are already embedded in the resource. You won’t have to download any fonts. The file is ready to go! Please note that this means you also cannot change the fonts.


The form where you type student names has space for 8 names, however, you can create an unlimited number of personalized readers by reusing the file over and over again.


Long names such as Charlotte and Christopher will fit perfectly. Extremely long names will cause the line to print in a smaller font.



You will be able to instantly download the ZIP file containing 2 PDF files. One file contains the original version of the book, and the other contains the social distancing version. The ZIP file is 31.9 MB. 

To unzip the ZIP file, simply extract the contents. This tutorial may help if you are new to unzipping. 

You will need Adobe Reader to edit the student names in this book. You should open Adobe first, and then open the PDF file you need from the File, Open menu.
