This resource includes five animal stories with oral comprehension questions to use as follow-up. Sight word strips are provided for each story to aid students in learning and reviewing specific story vocabulary. Five stick puppets are included to encourage students to retell and enjoy the story with their animal friends. A bingo game with nine basic color words is provided to help students practice these simple sight words. Also provided is a list of suggestions for ways parents can connect with their child using these stories. This is a great way to study an engaging topic while increasing reading fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension skills.
