This packet is from my READ TO LEARN series. A good story entertains, educates, and inspires! That is my goal with these books! And giving the students copies of the books to color, highlight words, etc. and take home to share with their families is an important step in the learning process.
"Shopping Trip" is an entertaining story about a grandfather taking his granddaughter shopping to choose a birthday present for herself. The students will love how she surprises her grandfather by choosing gifts for her family instead! (This story has 20 compound words in it!)
Included in this fun packet are:
*An original song called "Read a Book"
*A letter to parents that teaches 12 reading strategies
*A classroom copy of "Shopping Trip"
*A master for small individual student books

I hope you enjoy these materials! Sheila
