Let's Go! Let's Get Out In That SNOW!
Yesterday I updated and posted the ordinal number winter poster packet to rave reviews. (Thanks! So glad you liked it. I guess lots of teachers & parents were in the same boat. ) This sort of “What goes on next?” always helped my Y5’s and expedited things, so we could waddle out for recess before the bell rang to come back in!
I decided to follow that up by updating an emergent reader booklet on the same subject, that will help you review Common Core State Standards: RF.K1a, RF.K1c, RF.K3c, L.K2a, L.K2b
Like the poster, the booklet helps your students identify winter clothing words and the order clothes should be put on. Students correct the sentences by adding ending punctuation and a capital letter to the beginning word.
They trace and then write the ordinal number, as well as the article of clothing that is put on.
Students use pictures as clues to read the sentences, as they cut and glue other pictures to the matching numbered boxes. This packet is great for your Daily 5 word work activities.
There are 58 words in the booklet, 30 of which are Dolch sight words. I've included 58 traceable word cards to practice with, as well as worksheets involving contractions also found in the booklet, plus some word work with compound words.
Since the booklet is all about getting ready to go out to play in snowy winter weather, I thought it would be fun to see how many compound words starting with the word snow, I could come up with.
Can you think up more than my 15? I’d love hearing from you! I still don’t understand why snow pants is not a compound word! Anyone have an answer to that? firstname.lastname@example.org or post a comment here.
The packet also includes:
- 58 traceable word cards + covers to make Itty Bitty Booklets.
- 8 matching picture cards (Great for playing Memory Match or "I Have; Who Has?" games.)
- A graphing extension
- + 4 skill sheets, which include: Match the word from the story to the picture.
- An alphabetizing worksheet
- A compound word worksheet. (Trace and write 15 new words that begin with snow.) and
- A contraction worksheet +
- A certificate of praise when students can read the booklet independently.

Thanks for visiting. My feet have hit the floor running today, as my Christmas decorations need to be taken down and packed away, along with a myriad of other things. Anyone else hate that job?
