Each day, I added two sentences to our pocket chart. This is a great way to practice the sight words “I, see, a”. Because we read this big book every day, student memorize it. I have students practice reading the sentences in the pocket chart, pointing to each word. This helps them with tracking text and helps them feel like a “reader”. They also create their own mini reader that they put in their book box. They LOVED reading their Brown Bear reader to their actual bear during Read To Self.
Each week we add a new poem to our Poetry Folder. This week, we added Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear. We learned the words and movements. At the end of the week, we illustrate the poem in our folders and practice “reading” it to our friends.
