This humorous book, Gingerbread: The Smart Cookies, (Emergent Reader) is a perfect way to practice reading predictable texts and highlights the Sight Words "THE." It's a great choice for repeated readings at home and school which will help build fluency in your youngest readers! Pop it in your students' reading pouch/bag and you're good to go!
The last FOUR pages in this book can either be included in the book or used after the book is completed/read. The “Write 3 Ways” refers to 1. Rainbow Writing the word (I ask them to say word, trace over with one color crayon and repeat the word. Then do whole process two more times using an alternate color each time.) 2. Use your finger to write the word in the palm of your hand or a friends’ hand, and 3. Use a dauber to stamp out the word on paper. Can use the large "THE" I’ve included.)
