Getting To The Core Is A Real Treat And Not All That Tricky With This Cute October Booklet
My Trick Or Treat easy reader, is a fun way to reinforce the Common Core Standards: RF.K1a (Following words from left to right, top to bottom and page by page.) RF.K1c (Understanding that words are separated by spaces in print.) L.K2a (Capitalizing the pronoun I and the 1st word in each sentence.) and L.K2b (Being able to recognize and include ending punctuation.)
Simply review these standards with your students and point them out as you explain the booklet.
Students read, trace and write the sentence. On the first page they illustrate what they will be for Halloween.
On the following pages, children color the sight word and then trace the letters, then cut and glue them to the word box.
This “cut and glue” aspect of the booklet is a terrific activity for word work for Daily 5.
If you want to expedite things, skip cutting and gluing the booklet together.
Instead, simply have your students write the letters in the boxes and use the cut and glue pages as worksheets for Table Top, or Daily 5 at a later date.
When choosing sight words, I incorporated many words from the Dolch word lists when I wrote this easy reader booklet. This covers the Common Core State Standard: RF. K3c
I've also included a page of manipulatives for you to laminate and use Velcro or magnet strip so that the booklet can become an interactive read aloud that you can later sequence with your students.
To incorporate math, tally your students' favorite Halloween candy and graph the results on the bar graph provided.
Traceable flashcards are also included + a certificate of praise when children can read the booklet independently.

“Children need models rather than critics.” –Joseph Joubert
One of the shapes that my Y5’s had a bit of difficulty with was a triangle; not sure why, but more often than not that was the toughie.
They often enjoyed playing “I Spy” and trying to find a shape in the real world, so I decided to think of some fun triangle shapes that they might see on Halloween, and the booklet, Halloween Triangles was born.
I introduced the easy reader ike this:
“Uh Oh! It's Halloween and these spooky triangles can be seen! Count them if you dare!”
Your students will enjoy reading, tracing, writing, counting, and coloring the Halloween triangles.
They’ll have fun during "Tally Time" and then afterwards, graph childrens opinions of what triangle character was their favorite.
I’ve also included 10 traceable word flashcards for students to practice or cut out and use with other sets, to make new sentences.
Great for "word work" during Daily 5 activities.
This is a cute rhyming booklet, (rhyming is a Common Core Standard) that packs in a lot of skills, as it incorporates math with reading in a fun way.
