It was inspired by the fabulous Mrs. Parker on TBA last week. She shared an adorable Read Across America Bookmark, which I promptly printed for my class. If you haven't already, you must go and download them immediately!
As I was reading the bookmark I thought this would be the perfect shared reading for next week. It has some easy, peasy sight words for my struggling ones and some vowel teams for my higher ones.
Anywhoo, with Mrs. Parker's permission, I have made a large version for shared reading and a corresponding pocket chart version.
If I had a red pocket chart I could have achieved the same effect with only white cards :)
For the shared reading: I printed odd numbered pages on white and even numbered pages on red. I put the sentences together in strips, arranged them on a sheet of poster board, and then traced a hat shape around them with a Sharpie. I had to used a second sheet for the brim of the hat and just taped them together.
Here is the shared reading.
Here is the pocket chart version. (Again, I alternated the pages between white and red when I printed)
And last but not least, an individual student sequencing sheet.
Thank you Mrs. Parker for your inspiration! Wishing everyone an amazing week of Seuss-filled fun and learning!
