This a differentiated reading and counting book. It includes 3 versions of the story with varying support for each version, a teacher copy, and student copy of each story, and vocabulary cards. You can review the vocabulary cards with students before reading, to increase their fluency and comprehension.
Story One: This story has a teacher copy with words and turkeys completed. The student version includes all the words, and one set of turkeys completed. The students can color the other set of turkeys to reinforce color words during or after reading.
Story Two: This story has a teacher copy (large copy) with a square where words or numbers are missing. The student copy (small copy) also has missing numbers and words. Students can cut and glue the missing words or numbers into the missing spot. These cards are at the end of the story.
Story 3: This version of the story has a teacher copy (large copy) with a square where words or numbers are missing. In this version, inside of each square is a traceable word. This will support students who are still learning or find it difficult to write words and numbers.
I will often use the teacher copy to assist students who need to practice tracing or matching the words and numbers. A great way to do this is to laminate the story, and place Velcro in the squares and on the cards. Students can then complete the story by matching the words and numbers. The Velcro makes the story a resource that can be used over and over.
