I tried something new and would love your feedback. I wrote a mini-reader which you can download for free by clicking on the picture below.
This is an activity that could be used many different ways. Have your students:
After reading the story, students can:
*Circle the word wall words
*Draw a green box around the first letter or word of a sentence.
*Draw a red box around the punctuation mark at the end of the sentence.
*Highlight the focus skill of the week such as all of the r-controlled vowels, blends, or digraphs.
*After reading the story, let your students be the illustrator. They will need to use the details from the story in the picture. Remind them to pay attention to words such as black cap or brown boot.
*Answer the questions at the end of the story.
