****This packet has recently been updated to also include "Fruit Colors". 25 new pages have been added!******
While they are shown in color, they do print nicely in grayscale.
My "Fruit and Vegetable Colors" Non-Fiction Differentiated Guided Reading Books and Reading Response packet offers six guided reading books beginning at a "aa" level, with each book increasing slightly in difficulty. Each page contains real photographs to support the text. These are designed for kindergarten, but can be used with first grade. This pack focuses on reinforcing color words and identifying details. "Fruit Colors" Level 3 also includes fun facts about different types of fruit!
Also included are nine reading response and extension activities:
"Vegetable Colors" Main Idea and Details Graphic Organizer- Given the main idea, students will draw details from the text to support the main idea.
My Favorite Vegetable Opinion Writing- Students will draw a picture of their favorite vegetable and write a sentence to tell why it is their favorite.
My Least Favorite Vegetable Opinion Writing- Students will draw a picture of their least favorite vegetable and write a sentence to tell why they do not like it.
Vegetable Color Sort- Students will cut and paste pictures of vegetables under the correct color word.
"Fruit Colors" Main Idea and Details Graphic Organizer- Given the main idea, students will draw details from the text to support the main idea.
My Favorite Fruit Opinion Writing- Students will draw a picture of their favorite vegetable and write a sentence to tell why it is their favorite.
Draw and Write Fruit Facts- Students will draw a fruit from the text and write a fact they learned. Students will draw another fruit and write a fact they know.
Fruit Colors- Students will trace the name of the fruit and write its color. (2 pages)
To assemble the books:
Make single sided copies, cut in half, stack in order of page number, and staple.
Or to save time...
Make single sided copies of each page, keep the pages in a stack and fold in half. Remove the inner pages, turn the pages so that the fold is to the right side, and stack in order of page number. Take the cover page, turn so that the fold is facing left, place the pages inside, and staple. Once you get the hang of this method, book making is a snap! I am not a fan of cutting and reordering pages.
