1-2-3 Come Make An Emergent Reader With Me
Going trick or treating is one of my favorite childhood memories. What little girl doesn't love getting to wear lipstick and a crown?
We are fortunate that our school still celebrates Halloween. When administration tried to toss it out, parents actually revolted.
Even if you don't celebrate Halloween, many of your students will be going trick or treating.
Since that's such a "hot button" with children, I thought I'd design an emergent reader to get them excited about reading.
This little booklet packs a lot of sight word punch, as it includes ALL 40 pre-primer Dolch words, plus another 38 from the other lists, for a total of 78 sight words; all while reinforcing numbers 1-10, as well as colors. Woo hoo!
I've included 4, black & white mini pages on a one-page template, as well as 8-on-a-page, so you can make Itty Bitty booklets.
Children read the simple sentences, trace and write the number & number word, then color the picture.
The base of the booklet is a little pumpkin treat bag that says: "Be Safe!" Simply run it off on orange paper.
There's also a "color me" list of safety tips. It's loaded with sight words, so take a moment to read it out loud, calling on students to each read a tip, then send it home as a reminder for parents.
Well that's it. Thanks for stopping by. I'm watching my grandchildren today, so time to get "kid-proofing" my office, where we'll be doing some crafts.
Wishing you a day filled with lots of love and giggles.
