These print and go foldable mini books are perfect for students aged 4-5.
Each letter of the alphabet has 2 mini books.
Book 1 features the sight words [is] and [for]. Book 2 features the sight words [I], [see], [a], and [the].
Each of the 2 books use the same pictures for ease of "reading" the final word on each page.
**For best results, please choose "fit to page" when printing.**
We use the first book on Mondays [class meets M/W/F]. First they highlight each time the focus letter appears in the book. Together we identify the pictures and discuss any unfamiliar pictures [umpire for example] so they "know" what the last word on each page is. Then we read together the whole book. I watch carefully for correct tracking and correct as necessary. Each student circles the word "is" on each page and checks with their partner for accuracy. Each student then draws a line under the word "for" and checks for accuracy. Next, they whisper read to themselves. Again, I'm watching for tracking. Finally, as they color, I go to each student and have them read at least one page from the book to me. This book goes home to read and keep.
The second book we use on Wednesdays and Fridays [I just keep their copies on Wednesdays and send the books home on Fridays]. Because the books use both "a" and "the," they're a little more challenging. We go through the books in a similar fashion as before. We simply focus on the word "a" on Wednesday and the word "the" on Friday. "I" and "see" are reviewed each day.
Combine these books with my ABC Letter Sort Pages and my Alphabet Activity Pages for a complete print and go ABC curriculum for 4-5 year olds. Perfect for use in preschool and home-school environments as well as for remediation as needed for older students.
