Category Archives: Quick as a Cricket
Our big book this past week was Quick as a Cricket. I created a reader to use with this story and the children liked filling in the blanks I had left in the sentences for them.
We also used these Boardmaker pictures I found through a pin on Pinterest to help us tell the story. I printed them out, laminated them, and after a few minutes of thinking, decided to apply Velcro to the back of the pictures and magnets to the back of the sentence frame:
The pocket charts that they have in the Target Dollar Spot each year are great at holding the pictures. I put the sentence frame on my easel and 19 of the kids (exactly how many were present that day out of 26–strep is going around!) came up and took one action picture and one animal picture and placed them in the appropriate places. 🙂
I’ve just posted a new emergent reader in my Teachers Pay Teachers store (click here or at the green button on the left to go there).
I created an emergent reader for the book Quick as a Cricket that I’ll be using next week with my kiddos. 🙂 It’s a total of ten pages and uses several of the animals from the story. The children have to fill in one word, so it would be perfect for Kindergarten kiddos!
Let me know if you have any questions. 🙂
