This packet is from my READ TO LEARN series. A good story entertains, educates, and inspires! That is my goal with these books! And giving the students copies of the books to color, highlight words, etc. and take home to share with their families is an important step in the learning process.
"Chore Day" is a fun book about some children who keep getting distracted from completing their chores. It teaches students the importance of doing "your worst jobs first, and when you're done, have fun!" (There are 18 contractions in this simple story!)
Included in this fun packet are:
*An original song called "Read a Book"
*A letter to parents that teaches 12 reading strategies
*A classroom copy of "Chore Day"
*A master for small individual student books

I hope you enjoy these materials! Sheila
