This holiday product is packed full of engaging beginning and emergent literacy learner activities based on ELA Common Core State Standards.
The packet includes:
- an 8 page little book entitled "Holiday Cookies"
(challenging for an emergent reader, but perfect for beginning reader guided reading with teacher cuing support)
-Teacher tips/suggestions on questioning strategies you can use to support students figuring out new words on their own
-a one page "poster" with specific questions you can ask a student who is actively engaged in figuring out a new word- OTHER than "sound it out"
-two versions (differentiated) of a main idea/detail activity to go with "Holiday Cookies"- some careful reading and thinking is required, because two sentences that aren't a main idea OR a detail of this story are included.
- one page of varied vocabulary practice with "content" words from the story (baking related)
-one page of sequencing the story with a cut and glue worksheet-the sentences to be sequenced are not just literal copies from the book to sort and put in visual order,so simple "close read" strategies may be used
-one page of word work-sorting words into the two sounds of "oo" (cooking/school)
Please download the preview of this product, which includes copies of some, but not all, the activities available in this guided reading packet- I am really excited to hear what my colleagues have to say about these materials, so please leave feedback if possible!
If this product looks like instructional material that would work well in your classroom, please take a look at my store for many other products:
