This is an emergent reader book by Sara Ipatenco. It encourages children to recognize the simple sight words such as “the,” “had” and “are.” The 10-page book lists colored animals, such as pink flamingo and orange fish, and how many colored shamrocks each has. This book is a great way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day while also reinforcing color and number words! It uses repeated text and encourages children to use the pictures to figure out unknown words. The simple text encourages phonics skills, too. Simply cut the pages apart and staple them together. I’ve included a black and white version that students can color themselves and a color version that you can print, laminate and use as a classroom book! Enjoy!!
