Looking for a fun and interactive guided reading book or a book that students can take home to read to parents or siblings? This book is it!
This 6-page book features the short vowel U CVC words mug, rug, tub, gum, mud and hut. It engages readers by giving short descriptions in the text and then having them fill in the blank under each flap to complete it.

I’ve included two different sets of reader pages for you to choose from. One set has short, simple sentences that include repetition. The other set does not have repetition and the sentences are a bit longer. Simply use the set that best fits your readers' needs.
Each flap has the page number it corresponds to in the bottom right-hand corner so students can easily see which page to glue it on. It’s up to you what order you have your students assemble, color, and read these books. When I used them, we first cut out and glued the flaps onto the pages. Then we assembled the book, read through and filled in the blanks as we lifted each flap, and then colored them when we were all finished.
Here is what is included in this file:
Page 1: Cover
Page 3: Directions and Answer Key
Page 4: Mugs and Rugs cover page
Pages 5-10: Reader text (set 1)
Pages 11-12: Flaps
Pages 13-18: Reader text (set 2)
