In this document you will find a simple, informational, teacher-made book about desert animals. Following the book (the book is 10 pages long), there are several worksheets with different questions or activities designed to: review the information from the book, practice making choices, and expressing opinions/ thoughts. Some of the activities include vocabulary work, sight words work, drawing and labeling, and unscrambling the sentence. The book follows a repetitive sentence structure allowing for beginner level readers to practice reading with one-to-one correspondence, using pictorial cues for comprehension, and develop fluency while also working on sight words recognition (in, the, who, a, is).
This book and worksheets can be used as teaching tools, a literacy/reading/writing center, reviews, assessments, or in any other way you see fit. The absence of distracting graphics and decorations are a purposeful design choice to prevent pulling focus away from the learning and tasks at hand.
