This product contains a variety of reading material and assessment tools that will help to enhance your Guided, Shared and Independent Reading Program, as well as provide practice for fine motor and writing skills development!
- 8-page Colour Big Book
- 8-page B&W Big Book
- 8 full-colour vocabulary cards
- 8 B&W vocabulary cards
The big book is perfect for Shared Reading lessons. I like to use them at the carpet to introduce and practice the story as a whole group. The vocabulary cards are perfect for using in your chart stand to create and practice sentences, or for your Writing Centre as a guide for writing activities.
Guided & Independent Reading
- 8-page colour mini book
- 8-page B&W mini book
I like to use the mini books in both Guided and Independent Reading Activities. They are perfect as part of my Book-in-a-Bag program. The easy-to-print books are perfect to send home (if they get lost, simply print a new one!) – no more costly books to replace! Print these books again and again. (The kids love to colour them, too!)
- 8-page B&W Activity Book version of the story
- 1-page drawing sheet
I like to use the Activity version of the book in my Writing Centre as both a writing practice lesson and a reading comprehension assessment tool. Students must read, fill in and draw missing elements to complete the story. The Drawing Sheet is a way for students to demonstrate an understanding of new vocabulary; they can complete the sentence using vocabulary cards or with their own words, then draw a picture to accompany it!
- 1 Running Record Sheet
The Running Record is an essential tool in my assessment practice. It is a great way to check reading comprehension, see what strategies students are using to decode sentences, and test knowledge of high-frequency words.
