“Dig A Dinosaur”- Level G

I’m going to begin by sharing what I “think” the Fountas & Pinnell Reading Level is for one of many children’s favorite title, Dig A Dinosaur. Based on the characteristics I’ve noted below of Level G, this songbook would be most appropriate for ages 6 – 7 and first grade readers. (Of course, PreK through second graders love this book!)

• 2 sentences per page

• 4 lines of text per page

• repetition throughout

• rhyming structure

I have identified the various teaching points when using Dig A Dinosaur during your Shared Reading  lessons below. *Please note my Blog dated October 25th at normagentner.com as to how to plan out your week with one of my Songbooks of Science!
