Beginning readers are in for a treat as they try to guess what things are hiding under Witch’s hat! Short, predictable text and picture clues help students as they decode the words in this fun Halloween story.
In addition to the emergent reader, this file contains a list of ideas for before, during, and after reading.

to read the story and see the literacy activities!
Here are the included activities students may complete after reading the book:
-Phonics: Students make “-at” family words using the “If I can Read Hat…” worksheet. They cut and paste letters to make the words and then write and illustrate them.
-Writing: 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 can be 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 can be displayed individually or combined into a class book using the cover page included in this file. The book can be added to your classroom library for all students to enjoy!
