I just love shared reading time! It is an opportunity to share a story or a poem and read together!
I believe that the fonts should be age appropriate and that materials for little readers should have good picture support! These materials have BOTH!
This poem has a focus on Thanksgiving Food and Color Words!
I know I like to do a food theme during November...perhaps you do too!
These materials include:
Two copies of the poem in printable form
"Thanksgiving Time" Emergent Reader (8 pages)
The last page is blank so the children can illustrate and add their favorite food!
Pocket Chart Cards for the poem
Two options: one with text only and another with text and picture support
Food Cards (includes just the foods from this poem)
Color Word Cards (just the color words from this poem)
Cut and Glue printable for matching the foods with the correct line in the poem.
Fill in the color words printable (I have removed the color words from the poem, and children fill in the correct color word from the poem)
What's on your Thanksgiving Plate Printable
girl and boy option...children can draw or cut and glue their favorite Thanksgiving foods on the plate!
Turkey Roll and Color Printable
Turkey Roll and Cover Game Mat (laminate and use at a math center)
The preview shows EVERYTHING!
