Based on Cynthia Rylant's "Mr. Putter and Tabby Pour the Tea", this activity has been designed to enhance student understanding for using high frequency words as per the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Similarly, it has been adapted to correlate with the Macmillan McGraw-Hill (MMH) Treasures Reading Series. It can be used as both a direct instruction activity or as skill practice at a literacy station or reading center.
