This simple cut-and-paste emergent reader is a PERFECT book for introducing students to the process of creating an Interactive Sight Word Reader during the first weeks of school. Each page of I Have a Backpack contains a predictable sentence missing the word “a.” Students will cut apart the letters to spell “a” (included), then glue the letter into each page to complete each sentence. Picture support is included throughout the book, which provides valuable scaffolding to help young learners read with confidence and success.
Your students will LOVE creating this sight word book and will want to proudly read it again and again. Interactive Sight Word Readers are a great, inexpensive way to build a personal reading library for each of your students.
Preparation is a breeze with Interactive Sight Word Readers. Each page in the book is formatted to print two-to-a-page for quick and easy collating. Simply copy the book, cut to separate, and place a staple in each half-sheet booklet. Copy the letter page separately and cut down the middle to provide each student with a strip of letters to fill in their sight word books.
