This Shared Reading PowerPoint is a great way to begin reading with young students. This story uses a predictable pattern to support emerging readers.
On the first page of the book, Santa says, "I am getting ready for Christmas Eve. What do I need?" On the next pages, different items that Santa would need are shown. These items are included: hat, suit, boots, mittens, sleigh, sack, and reindeer. The text on these pages follows this pattern: Here is/are Santa's _______/ Santa needs his ________.
This story reviews these sight words: here, is, are, his, I, am, and for.
This file can be projected for whole group shared reading; it can also be printed as a book for the class library :)
