What's Included?

Emergent Reader: "What is That Under Witch's Hat?" is a short, ten page emergent reader with picture clues and predictable text. Objects hiding under the hat include a cat, bat, spider, pumpkin, and ghost.

Phonics Activity: Students cut and paste letters to make more “-at” family words using the “If I Can Read Hat, I Can Read…” worksheet. They also write and illustrate the new words. Two options: one with consonants and one with blends/digraphs.

Writing Activity: Students choose an object and draw it on the writing template. Next, they color a witch hat and place it over their object so only a small part of the object is showing. They glue or tape only the top part of the hat onto the paper so the hat is lifted up to reveal the object underneath. Students write a sentence at the bottom of the template to tell what is hiding under the hat.

These writing templates may be displayed individually or combined into a class book using the cover page included in this file. Add the book to your classroom library for all students to enjoy!
