Product Description
Celebrate the new season and challenge your little ones with this classroom favorite filled with sight words!
First, read a small copy of the riddle as you slowly walk around the room stirring the surprise (silk rose petals available at dollar stores) in an opaque bucket or dishpan. For the very first reading, do NOT read the title of the poem!
After you read the last line, toss the petals into the air, handfuls at a time. Enjoy squeals of delight as the petals fall on the children!
Enlarge the riddle on your school's postermaker or at your office supply store. After multiple large-group readings with the poster, put it up in your literacy center with a pointer for tracking text. After each child reads the poem, s/he gets a turn to toss the petals in the air!
Put several letter-size copies in page protectors for small-group. Students may read chorally, partner read or individually whisper read. They also enjoy circling sight words with a dry-erase marker, crayon, etc.
Stand back and watch your students begging to read the poem!
