This packet includes 3 booklet options, plus a variety of page options too.

There’s a black & white version for your students, with a matching full-color teacher’s edition, to use as a sample to explain the lesson.

Afterwards, put your copy in a “class-made” book basket in your classroom library.

Students read the repetitive sentence, trace & write the object that the wind blew, then trim and collate the pages, stapling into a “just the right size” booklet.

There are 2, full-page patterns, with 4, mini pages on the template.

I’ve also included an extra “9th” page. Children complete the sentence: “The wind also blew . . .” and add their own idea and picture.

The 3rd version, is a non-illustrated option. Students read the sentences (these are filled with over 40 Dolch sight words), add end punctuation (period, question mark, exclamation point), then illustrate and color the page.

Besides the booklet options, I’ve also included extra page options as well.

For those of you who read the book “The Wind Blew”, by Pat Hutchins, I’ve included a template with 4 more objects that the wind blew, which are in her story.

With this extra pattern page, all of the items in her story, except for the newspaper, are now represented.

So that Canada, Great Britain & Australia, can also use this packet, I’ve included those countries’ flag options for the second-page template.

If you are from another country, and would like a pattern page, simply leave me a note and I’ll add it to the packet.

I’ve included Christina Rossetti’s “Who Has Seen The Wind?” photo-poster poem, as an interesting way to introduce the lesson, and get in that "poetry genre" standard.

To mix math with literacy, There's also a graphing extension.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a wonderful day.
