This Groundhog Day Emergent Reader FREEBIE is designed to provide students with an opportunity to learn to read and spell the sight word “this” in a hands-on way. Each page of the book contains a predictable sentence missing the word “this." Students will cut apart the letters to spell “this," then unscramble and glue the letters into each page to spell the sight word. Each page features pictures to support the text.

Teacher Directions:

1. Print "THIS is Groundhog Day" book and the corresponding scrambled word cutouts for each student.

2. Separate book pages by cutting each 8.5x11” sheet in half.

3. Staple the books together for students.

You can separate “this” cutouts and distribute one word at a time as a whole class activity, or provide students with full sheets of cutouts for a small group activity.
