A simple literacy activity that gets students reading and writing simple sentences, as well as studying shapes and color words. Students read the sight words "I" "see" "by" "and" "me." They practice reading numbers 1 - 5, and writing basic color words like "red," "orange," "yellow," "blue." The book culminates with a special reward activity, where students add details to the shapes and transform the illustration into their own self-portrait!
This book was developed for my classroom in response for my need to prepare students for beginning DRA reading tests.
