This fun and engaging phonics resource was created to give 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade students practice with reading a specific set of season-related words and phrases. Students will have so much fun reading these silly and goofy words and phrases that they won’t realize is what they’re really doing is strengthening their oral language development, rhyming, and sight/high frequency word skills!
How It Works: Students take one deep breath, exhale, then read all of the words and phrases in the breath box all within the NEXT breath. Each read time (in either seconds or minutes) can be recorded on a recording sheet.
*Two (2) Winter Breath Box Student Covers
*Winter Breath Box Recording Sheet
*Twenty (20) Winter Breath Boxes
**PLEASE DOWNLOAD PREVIEW TO GET MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THIS PRODUCT**
*With the exception of the cover and a few graphics/pictures, this product has been produced entirely using black, gray, and white ink.
*Depending on the academic needs and levels of your kiddos, you may wish to have your students practice reading the breath boxes a few times BEFORE being timed. NOTE: For your students who have chronic respiratory or breathing issues, you may wish to just have them naturally read each breath box without the use of timers.
*For your convenience, there are two (2) breath boxes on each page, for a total of (twenty) 20 breath boxes. Should you want to make a breath box practice “book” for your kiddos, copy the cover, recording page, and breath boxes practice pages back-to-back (2-sided) for a total of about six (6) pages.
*These winter breath boxes make a perfect addition to your literacy or reading stations and centers. They also work great as morning/seatwork/bell fluency warm-ups.
*Laminate (or place in plastic protective sleeves) the practice pages to ensure years of usage and durability. SUGGESTION: After laminating, hole-punch left side of the breath box practice pages and “ring” them together with binder rings. Hang the ringed practice pages on a wall as a space saver.
Happy reading winter breath boxes! :)
