Here's everything you need for a kindergarten

guided reading lesson, with an array of materials for word work and writing follow-up activities:

-a detailed teacher’s guide (5 pages of teaching tips for before, during, and after reading)
-a running record sheet for assessment
-flash cards – high frequency words
-word and sentence strips – pocket chart and table
Kids love to pretend to be scared. Maybe that’s why they seem to learn the word, Boo
without even trying! Your students will enjoy this book while developing several reading strategies.
The book is designed to help children learn early high frequency words
, provides opportunities for word work
, and can be used with any curriculum
My many years as a reading specialist
and education writer
have given me a close-up view of the many small steps children take as they become literate.
Classroom time is limited, so I design my guided reading books to include opportunities for students to progress in a variety of ways. As they read I See a Ghost
, students work on:
-using known sight words (perhaps I, a
-learning one or two new high frequency words (I, a, the, see, boo
-using their knowledge of words to detect a change in sentence pattern
-using their language sense to add the verb ending -s
-reading about a topic they enjoy
If you prefer, you can buy just the book itself
(which includes both black & white and color versions) here
The 16-page pdf book
(20 pages with front and back covers) is printed double-sided, two to a page, so print only half the number you want. Color copies can be laminated for classroom use, and b & w copies sent home for reinforcement.
