Add some hands-on, engaging sight word practice to your dinosaur unit with this emergent reader! Each page of What is that Dinosaur contains a predictable sentence about different kinds of dinosaurs. Every sentence is missing the word “what” and it is the child's job to complete the sentences. Students will cut apart the letters to spell “what” (included), then unscramble and glue the letters into each page to correctly spell the sight word. Picture support is included throughout the book, which provides valuable scaffolding to help young learners read the book with confidence and success.

Your students will LOVE creating this dinosaur theme sight word book and will want to proudly read it again and again. Interactive Sight Word Readers are a great, inexpensive way to build a personal reading library for each of your students.

Preparation is a breeze with Interactive Sight Word Readers. Each page in the book is formatted to print two-to-a-page for quick and easy collating. Simply copy the book, cut to separate, and place a staple in each half-sheet booklet. Copy the letter page separately and cut down the middle to provide each student with a strip of letters to fill in their sight word books.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This was such a great activity for my students during our dinosaur unit. They loved piecing together the word, coloring the pictures, and then reading the book when they were finished. A must-have for a fun and engaging word work center during a dinosaur unit! Thank You! :)

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I used this in one-on-one tutoring this summer with a student - we did a word a week, and their retention skyrocketed! Thanks, Maria!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ LOVE these books! I really enjoy the kids putting the letters in the correct order, having clear illustrations to use, and the predictable text. Bonus that they are learning the dino names at the same time! They are loving these!
