I designed this emergent reader packet
to go along with my Silly Shaped Penguin craft, which is a FREEBIE in my TpT shop.
For your convenience, I’ve included it with this packet
You don’t have to make the Silly Shaped Penguins, but I really think they get children excited to make this short emergent reader booklet, which includes 50 Dolch sight words
Children read the sentence, add end punctuation ( ? . ! ), trace & write the shape word, then trace, draw and color the shape.
I've included an extra page with the hexagon, pentagon & octagon if you study those as well.
The last page is also optional. “This penguin is in the shape of my shoe. It’s a special keepsake that I made for you.” where children trace their shoe, and add details to make it look like a penguin.
There are 2 size options for the booklet: full-page (great for a teacher’s edition), plus 2-on-a-page half size to conserve paper and ink.
The packet also includes:
* A set of trace & write
the shape word cards, which can be turned into an Itty Bitty booklet
, or used for a Memory Match or “I Have; Who Has?” game
. I’ve also included a full-color set as well.
* A graphing
* A “Roll & Color” the shapes
game, where children choose a partner & take turns rolling the dice. Whatever number they roll, is the matching numbered shape that they color.
* And finally, an “I Spy a Shape” game worksheet
, which is a quick, easy and fun way to whole group assess
You can use the worksheet 5 times too!
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your kiddos enjoy “shaping up” with the Silly Shaped penguin gang.
