Get ready for Halloween with some hands-on, engaging sight word practice in this interactive emergent reader. Each page of Look at the Monsters contains a predictable sentence about various colored monsters. Every sentence is missing the word “look” and it is the students’ job to complete the sentences. Students will cut apart the letters to spell “look” (included), then unscramble and glue the letters into each page to correctly spell the sight word. Picture support is included throughout the book, which provides valuable scaffolding to help young learners read with confidence and success.
Each monster mentioned in the book is described as a different color, which provides an easy way to review color words as they color each picture to match the text.
This is a perfect “non-Halloween” activity for your Halloween week lesson plans that reinforces color words while working on sight words.
Whether you work on this book during the Halloween season or any other time of year, your students will LOVE creating this monster 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.
