Great for Guided Reading or Guided Writing, this 8-page Spring mini-book follows the same familiar word pattern on each page, helping young readers find success by the repetition of many basic sight words! Students will enjoy having this simple book they can read on their own, using picture clues as needed. After reading, children may color the black and white pictures. The full poem is on the back cover of the book for additional reading fluency practice. Print it 2-sided, staple on the left, then cut the page in half to create 2 identical copies. (repeated sight words include: is, here, so, and, see, come, the)
Spring Is Here can also serve as a model when introducing the concept of pattern book writing. After reading, discuss the pattern and invite children to create their own pattern books for Spring or any other topic of interest.
Also includes full page poem in color and B&W, and 1/2 size poem (2 per page) for use in poetry journals
