Product Description: We Are Friends Mini-Book and Writing Prompts
This engaging and multicultural mini- book is just right for emergent readers to practice sight words and build fluency. The repetitive text is easy to master, teaches an important lesson about friendship, and provides a natural transition to the included extension writing activity.
This would make a great lesson during guided reading, whole group reading, writing instruction, or even Social Studies. (I use it as one of my Valentine’s reads.)
