This mega bundle is all about Christmas Trees, how the life cycle of the tree occurs, going to a tree farm and cutting a tree, and about decorating the Christmas tree. It is an interesting Christmas Tree themed collection of an emergent reader, 3 teacher lap books, vocabulary cards, and writing activities that will assist you to enhance the learning that is going on in your classroom. These books and cards are very colorful and can be used in a variety of ways. This set was developed to be used in a primary setting when teaching new concepts. The books and cards are also great to use with your English Language Learners, too.
My emergent readers, teacher lap books, vocabulary cards and writing centers are designed with the Pre-K, Transitional Kindergarten, and Kindergarten Student in mind. My readers and writing centers (the vocabulary / picture cards are great for writing centers) will assist you as you work with your students to build book handling skills, subject knowledge, and vocabulary. My very basic readers will go along very well with the traditional storybook and seasonal units that we do with very young students. The readers can be used for guided reading, to support ELD, or as an independent center after students have been introduced and are comfortable with the text. The teacher lap books, picture cards, writing activities, and building character activities are great for whole class instruction, ELD, and may then be transferred to writing centers or independent pocket chart activities. Vocabulary cards, picture cards, writing activities, etc, can be transferred to centers after your students have taken on the concepts taught. I have used my books for guided reading, familiar reading book boxes, and as take-home books.
Included in this set:
**Let's Plant a Christmas Tree - Student Emergent Reader
**Let's Plant a Christmas Tree - Teacher Lap Book
**:Life Cycle Chart
**Life Cycle Sequencing Activity Sheet
**Going to the Christmas Tree Farm - Teacher Lap Book
**Let's Decorate the Christmas Tree - Teacher Lap Book

**Writing Paper (can be used at a center, as journal page, or for small group activities). Includes paper with kindergarten writing lines, regular lines, and without lines.
I recommend running on cardstock and laminating for durability.
Students can benefit from reading sight word emergent readers by tracking one to one, identifying spaces between words, putting together letters and sounds to make words, reading sight words in context, and reading appropriate grade level text. The black and white clip art pictures support meaning and also provides opportunities to color the pictures.
