This emergent reader, written by Martha Krein, uses simple text to describe a families celebration of the holiday of Diwali. It is best used as a supplement or introduction to a lesson on Diwali.
It is a good review of the sight words: here, the, is, said, my, I, can, see. It also uses other reading strategies such as picture clues, sounds, and context clues.
