This beginning reader is a great non-fiction supplement to a study of space. It introduces parts of the Solar System including the Sun, Earth, the Moon, and the planets.
Students use many beginning reading strategies such as picture clues, context clues, sight words, letters and sounds.
Sight words included are: this, is, the, a, it, at, of, on, we, can, see, not, from, there, are, they, all, in, you, them. go, and you.
I used this book as an introduction to close reading in kindergarten.
