This is an emergent reader book, by Sara Ipatenco, that encourages children to recognize simple sight words “the,” “a” and “sees.” The 10-page book uses very simple text describing what the elf sees, such as Santa, a present, a tree and a reindeer. It also uses repeated text and encourages children to use the pictures to figure out unknown words. It's also a great way to practice phonics skills. 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 and Merry Christmas!!
