Read and Create is a wonderful way for beginning readers to create and have fun with the "art" of language arts!
Each activity page has a different passage or short story that encourages the reader to illustrate in their own creative way.
This is a terrific reading assessment tool/activity as the finished product needs to correspond with the written text.
Some of the passages rhyme and others focus on specific phonetic skills that are highlighted within the heart shape, found at the bottom of the page.
This is an awesome whole class activity or can make a great addition to any literacy center.
Children love Read and Create and teachers appreciate the simple instructions and how well this activity lends itself to quick assessment. If a child has not understood or read the passage correctly, it will be immediately evident in their drawing.
Your "little geniuses" can combine all of their finished artwork and stories in a "take home" book to share and reread over and over again!
