"I Can Read. Listen to Me." Stamp


(This stamp is our gift to you: there is no mark-up on this item. Limit 1 per order.)

We are pleased to once again have our “I Can Read. Listen to Me.” stamp available. You may recognize the image from the last page of our best-selling Read and Sing Big Book, I Can Read Colors. This belief statement is our goal for children and they love stamping it on the last page of our Read and Sing Little Books, or their own illustrated little books.

These stamps are not mass-produced overseas; they are made by our friend, Mike Collins, ten at a time, in his sign shop in Michigan. Our “designer stamp” is an expensive but precious affirmation for children in joyful writing-to-read classrooms.

As a gift to you: there is no mark-up on this item; we offer it to you at our direct cost from the producer. Happy Stamping! N.E.

Provide Active, Motivating Word Work: Make Stamp and Read “Skinny Books”!

  • Develop one-to-one correspondence between the spoken and printed word.
  • Engage the kinesthetic learner.
  • Help children effortlessly learn important high-frequency words.

Here is an engaging way to teach the concept of how words work while simultaneously building reading skills.  Children can kinesthetically feel each word as they stamp it.  The “skinny books” are mass prepared by parents—they are simply 4 sheets of paper cut into strips and stapled together, with—or without— a cover.

The limited number of word stamps (I, see, the…/ This, is, a…) and the thin design of the book pages support the child in creating one sentence on each length of paper.  Stamping naturally leaves a space between individual words so that children can more clearly see the visual uniqueness of each high-frequency word.  Children add an animal stamp, or their own drawing (with or without a word) to finish each sentence.  Young children take pride in these books, which they can read on their own, share with a friend, or read to the class; each time building stronger reading fluency and sight word recognition. Children happily take their personally-created stamping books home because they can successfully read “skinny books” featuring repetitive language patterns which they have completed in their own unique way.

Two sets of stamps, stored in a clear plastic fishing tackle box, make a great literacy center.
