Patterns at the Beach introduces emergent readers to patterns they could see while spending a day at the beach, such as a striped seashell or spotted sea turtle, while providing them with a supportive first nonfiction reading experience. Carefully crafted text uses high-frequency words, repetitive sentence patterns, and strong visual references to support emergent readers, making sure they aren’t facing too many challenges at once. Patterns at the Beach includes tools for teachers and caregivers, as well as introductory nonfiction features such as labels, a table of contents, words to know, an index, and a Let’s Review! question and photo. Patterns at the Beach is part of Jump!’s Patterns in Nature series.
