Here is a great way for students to practice reading sight words AND emergent writing skills.
Students start with one of the three premade books containing the sentence starters:
I go to the ____.
The ___ can go.
I can _____.
Students then choose a picture to complete from the clipart sheet to complete the sentence. Students can look in flyers from local stores or can use the included clipart page. (Copy in grayscale to save ink!)
Two clipart pages are included for each book:
1. 8 pictures with labels included under each picture.
2. 8 pictures with blank boxes under the picture. Students can either try to label the picture independently, or can choose a word from the word bank on the clipart sheet to label the picture!
Students LOVE reading these books they wrote during Read to Self time!
What a great way to engage students in an authentic literacy activity!
