Kids are going to love practicing sentences, reading comprehension, sight words, and more with this fun farm themed Create-Your-Own Reader. This activity is suitable for Kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd grade students.
I am so excited to share my new Create-Your-Own Reader Series! The first one is perfect for summer – Yummy Ice Cream!
These emergent readers allow kids in Kindergarten, first grade, and 2nd grade to gain reading fluency by practicing with these sight word readers. Basically, they will color then cut & paste to add text to these books. This will give them some fantastic practice building sentences. The reader is made up mostly of Pre-Primer, Primer, and 1st grade sight words. There is also a page of reading comprehension questions.
Ice Cream Emergent Reader
My 1st grader was having trouble putting words together into a sentence so I have been creating various free printables to help kids learn about sentences. This Create-Your-Own Reader just may be my favorite!
Complete directions are included in the free printable, but basically you are going to print front and back to make a black and white, empty Farm Reader.
Your child will:
- Color the book
- Cut out the word strips and paste them onto the appropriate page to make sentences
- Read the book (because now it has words)
- Optional: Answer the questions on the Reading Comprehension Worksheet included.
