Thanksgiving Emergent Reader: I see the...
This emergent reader, “I see the…,” (Thanksgiving) is connected to several CCGPS listed below. This eight page book is designed so that you can copy the book, cut it in half, staple, and then it is ready for use. The eight pages consist of a title page “I see the…” then each of the remaining seven pages contains a black and white picture at the top of each page and a sentence under the picture. Every page contains the sentence “I see the ______” (including the word to match picture, such as “I see the Mayflower.”). The seven pictures included are Mayflower, pilgrim, Indian, pie, corn, turkey, and feast. Students can benefit from this reader by tracking print, identifying spaces between words, identifying particular letters of the alphabet, recognizing sounds (beginning, middle, and ending) in each word, and reading sight words and grade level text. For extension activities, students could add another sentence to each page to add details. The black and white pictures allow students the opportunity to color the pictures. This reader is great for guided reading groups, homework, or literacy center activities.
