“Save a Tree for Me” – Level D

My next songbook I’d like to highlight is Save a Tree for Me. I’ve determined the Fountas & Pinnell Reading Level for this title to be Level D based on the characteristics I’ve noted below. It would be most appropriate for ages 4 – 7 and beginning first grade readers. (Of course, PreK through second graders love this book!)

  • 2 sentences per page
  • 4 lines of text per page
  • repetition throughout
  • some longer sentences (more than 6 words)
  • some sentences turn over to the next line (return sweep)

I have identified the various teaching points when using Save a Tree for Me 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!
