Christopher Columbus Interactive Sight Word Reader
Help your students master sight word “is” with my newest Interactive Sight Word Reader, “This is Christopher Columbus!” This six-page emergent reader uses predictable text to share some basic facts about Christopher Columbus. For each page of the book, students cut and glue letters to spell “is” and complete the sentences.
“This is Christopher Columbus” sells for just $1 on Teachers Pay Teachers.

This full-page printout divides into two smaller coloring pages. My students always do a better job of coloring if they have a smaller picture to fill in.
In addition to a standard coloring page, this makes a great roll and cover activity when you add a dice!

Regular plastic dice make way to much noise for my sensitive ears so I bought a giant tub of foam die. Now my students have fun but my classroom remains quiet and peaceful. Many great foam dice products are available on Amazon.
