In this document you will find a simple, informational, teacher-made book about things (mostly animals) that are found on or in the tree. In the book the word “on” is used to describe all the animals that can be found on/in the tree knowing that in some cases it may sound better to use the word “in”. However, i chose to maintain the repetitive sentence structure after making sure it is not grammatically incorrect to use the word “on”. Following the book (the book is 5 pages long), there are several worksheets with different questions or activities designed to: review the information from the book, practice making choices, and expressing opinions/ thoughts. Some of the activities include vocabulary work, sight words work, drawing and labeling, and unscrambling the sentence. The book follows a repetitive sentence structure allowing for emerging readers to practice reading with one-to-one correspondence, using pictorial cues for comprehension, and develop fluency while also working on sight words recognition (are, on, the).
This book and worksheets can be used as teaching tools, a literacy/reading/writing center, reviews, assessments, or in any other way you see fit. The absence of distracting graphics and decorations are a purposeful design choice to prevent pulling focus away from the learning and tasks at hand.
