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 many reading strategies.
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 (I, the
-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
