This cute decodable reader is Valentine's themed. Beginning readers can practice their reading skills with this decodable reader. First, I have students write their name on the first and last page. Next, students can identify one sight word. For this reader, I have students highlight the word "on," but students can identify the word "day," "I," "can," or "give," if your class has already mastered the word "on." Then, students can turn to the final page of the story and finish the sentence "On Valentine's Day, I can ________." They can practice sounding out words and draw an illustration. When they are finished, they can read through the book to practice and bring it home. At home, their families can sign the last page four times and return to school. This is perfect for K-2.
This activity can be used whole group or at a sight word, word work, or bookmaking center.
