This book has a repetitive and simple pattern. The pattern is broken at the end to ensure students are monitoring their reading. There are ten sight words/high frequency words as well as three color words in the story. Students can use the strategy of “searching the picture” to determine unknown words. Sight words include: was, saw, so, a, the, to, her, little, of, said
Extension activities include writing and illustrating a new sentence to go with the book (ex: The witch saw a ghost.), text-based and beyond the text reading response questions, and a fun witch writing craftivity. You’ll also find a fun creepy pointer for your students to use when reading this book. Laminate for durability and attach to a popsicle stick. HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
