This item includes two versions of the text "American Symbols," featuring one at a higher primary level (shown in the thumbnails) and a simpler version with single sentences on each page.
The book has been organized into short 2-page chapters to help children understand that, sometimes, nonfiction text is written in sections called chapters.
The American symbols featured in this text include:
• The American Flag
• The Bald Eagle
• The Liberty Bell
• The Rose
• The Statue of Liberty
The important vocabulary word, symbol, has been underlined and typed in bold print to help children remember it is a key word to understand in this text.
Simple sight words have also been included and "ghosted" (typed light gray) so children can recognize them and trace them with your direction.
As in commercially published texts, simple definitions and "Fun Facts" have been included in developmentally appropriate ways and where needed.
Each chapter provides the children with an opportunity to illustrate the symbol themselves.
Please hover over the thumbnails for a better look at the sample pages.
Thank you for your interest! :)
