I designed this emergent reader packet to go along with my Silly Shaped Penguin craft, which is a FREEBIE in my TpT shop.

For your convenience, I’ve included it with this packet.

You don’t have to make the Silly Shaped Penguins, but I really think they get children excited to make this short emergent reader booklet, which includes 50 Dolch sight words!

Children read the sentence, add end punctuation ( ? . ! ), trace & write the shape word, then trace, draw and color the shape.

I've included an extra page with the hexagon, pentagon & octagon if you study those as well.

The last page is also optional. “This penguin is in the shape of my shoe. It’s a special keepsake that I made for you.” where children trace their shoe, and add details to make it look like a penguin.

There are 2 size options for the booklet: full-page (great for a teacher’s edition), plus 2-on-a-page half size to conserve paper and ink.

The packet also includes:

* A set of trace & write the shape word cards, which can be turned into an Itty Bitty booklet, or used for a Memory Match or “I Have; Who Has?” game. I’ve also included a full-color set as well.

* A graphing extension

* A “Roll & Color” the shapes game, where children choose a partner & take turns rolling the dice. Whatever number they roll, is the matching numbered shape that they color.

* And finally, an “I Spy a Shape” game worksheet, which is a quick, easy and fun way to whole group assess.

You can use the worksheet 5 times too!
