Everything you need for your readers to respond to this book, You're Finally Here, by Melanie Watt. This book is a fun read aloud, especially for the first week of school.

Perfect for a first day of school activity. Bunny has been waiting and wonders what took you so long. He's a fun character and the children love to hear his story about waiting, being annoyed and bored! And all the things he does to pass the time. There are 20 pages here to respond in writing to this charming story. [plus alphabet letter cut-outs to make a bulletin board with your favorite pages by your students]. It's a favorite and children love that Bunny is actually talking to them.

Reader Response Pages Include:

  • graphic organizers
  • writing prompts
  • read. think. write.
  • opinion writing
  • class survey
  • word work - word shapes
  • bulletin board letters to cut out and use on your bulletin board
  • writing a list
  • notes for teacher
  • Finally Here pages for 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders
