This thematic emergent reader is perfect for teaching vocabulary about real and make-believe. It is one of 4 books associated with our JULY WORD OF THE DAY calendar. Your kids can learn words like REAL, PRETEND, and FAIRYTALES in a fun PIGGY BACK SONG format! The real photos are great for your ELL and young learners.

There is a lyric page with the words that they can highlight as well as illustrate for their poetry notebooks. We have also included a teacher guide on how to use the empty boxes. We like to use them to teach phonetic elements in the words. It really helps our students to see the connections in the words.
