This READING BOOKLET is perfect for teaching the sequence of the days of the week! It is ideal for the month of October when children dress up in costumes and go "trick-or-treating".
"Super Kids!" is a printable emergent text that uses high frequency sight words.
The targeted sight words are:
I'm, a, on, of, but, we, the, are
The vocabulary words are:
every, day, week, monkey, lion, frog, princess, clown, candy, jack-o-lantern, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, super, kids.
Within the booklet there is a glossary and a listing to provide children with various formats of print.
Both the black line and color version of the booklet are included. The adorable graphics in this file have children dressed in costumes. Some of the children are holding trick-or-treat buckets. The sequential order of the days of the week, (as customary in the USA) beginning with Sunday, is presented as each child states a day of the week while pretending to be a special character - based on the costume worn. The costumes are: clown, monkey, princess, lion, jack-o-lantern, frog, and a piece of candy corn. The booklet ends with the children stating that they are "Super Kids" every day of the week.
Some preparation is required to assemble the booklets. A total of six (single sided) pages is required to make one booklet. The pages will need to be folded and stapled together. No cutting involved!
To maximize the learning experience from the read aloud, I have included supplemental materials within this file. There are sight word and vocabulary word cards. These can be printed and provided to each student before or after reading the text. There is also a crossword puzzle for advanced students. The students will need to reference a copy of the booklet while completing the crossword puzzle. There are sequencing strips for the days of the week. An assessment tool for measuring student accuracy with reading the booklet is also included. I have provided the Common Core State Standards that are relevant to this product for kindergarten and first grade.
I used a font called, "EZRead" (which may help developing readers) within the text of the "story". Another font is used for the front cover title and the glossary. If you would like to learn more about the EZRead font, follow the link below:
