Puppies and reading abound in this book study unit for "How Rocket Learned to Read". Your students will love putting on a Puppy Reading Parade with shoebox floats and stuffed animals!
Other activities included are: "Fiction Prediction" (pre-reading questions), "How I Learned to Read" (reading interview), "Classroom Pound Hounds" and "Let the Names Begin" (reading skills), "Alphabetical Puppies" (ABC order), "Read Me!" (high frequency/sight word practice), "Read to Puppy" (reading fluency), "A Note From Rocket" (positive reading feedback notes), and puppy bookmarks.
"How Rocket Learned to Read" is a great story to share with your class at any time, but is especially perfect for the beginning of the year with students who are just learning to read, or at the end of the year when students can show off their reading progress. Most activities in this unit from Swersty's Swap Shop can be adapted to other puppy books and dog themes. Both color and printer-friendly black ink pages are included.
