Just for beginning readers – This is a set of winter-themed decodable books with comprehension activities, vocabulary, and sight words.
Students read each page and glue on the picture that goes with the text. A target word is highlighted in bold to help students find the correct picture. These are also good words for seasonal vocabulary instruction.
Includes 8 books:
- Winter Time
- My Little Snowman
- Polar Bears
- Snow Day
- Winter Sports
- Groundhog Day
The last page of each book has four simple comprehension questions. One is multiple choice and the rest require a short written response. The answers are found directly in the story.
These books print in black and white.
This set includes the same stories as the black and white version without the cut and glue component. The pictures are already included on each page to provide visual support while reading. The comprehension questions at the end are slightly different and formatted for discussion. They also provide opportunities to make text to self connections. This version is perfect for your guided reading groups but could also be used for partner reading or for take-home reading practice.
VOCABULARY CARDS & SIGHT WORDS
A set of word cards with vocabulary from the stories is also included along with corresponding picture cards. These can be used to pre-teach vocabulary, as a matching activity in centers, or on your word wall. Includes 14 words cards and 14 picture cards.
A second set of word cards contain sight words found in the stories that you may want to practice with your students. These are non-decodable words that students need to recognize by sight rather than sounding out. Includes 59 sight word cards.
These books and activities are a great way to incorporate winter holidays and science topics into your reading instruction while building comprehension and vocabulary.
