Is teaching about “Needs & Wants”
part of your curriculum?
This bit of economics
is one of our standards, so I thought it would be fun to introduce this concept with a “Needs & Wants” emergent reader
, plus some poster activities
There are two emergent reader options
A simpler version for younger kiddos, has them trace
the “need-want” words, then color
The other booklet is for older students, who read
the simple sentences, which are packed with plenty of Dolch sight words
, color the graphics, then fill in the blanks.
I’ve included both question marks and periods, so you can review end punctuation
The emergent reader templates come with 4-pages
on a one-page
Children color, cut, collate and staple the pages together, creating a “just the right size”
booklet, which saves paper & ink.
The packet also includes a “Needs & Wants” poster
that children create, by choosing from a collection of black & white graphics on their worksheet
, then coloring, cutting
them to the appropriate section on their poster
There are full-color options, so that you can quickly & easily make an example to share, or if you’re pressed for time, use my completed sample
Completed projects make an awesome bulletin board
I’ve also included a set of colorful, “Needs” posters
Use them to introduce your lesson, then scatter them on your display.
also come in black & white for students; and are printed 2-on-a-page
, with a cover
, so you can create another “Needs & Wants”
booklet, as a culminating review.
There are also blank poster patterns
, which allow students to illustrate
their own pages to help assess
and check comprehension
Be sure and check the PREVIEW
for lots of samples.
This packet pairs nicely with the “Needs & Wants” 3D Craftivity
