I just finished this wonderful packet and am so excited to share it with you!
It’s extremely versatile and includes 26 separate Alphabet Hat emergent reader booklets!
You can do these as a whole group activity, as an independent center, for a bulletin board, for a class-made book (each student contributes a letter) or have each child do all of the letter booklets and keep them in a “portfolio” file folder.
Students trace and write the upper and lowercase letters, as well as the words that begin with that letter. They read the sentence and add end punctuation. (I have used almost all of the words from the Pre-Primer, Kindergarten and 1st Grade Dolch word lists, plus many of the Dolch nouns, to make up the sentences!
color the pictures, then trim and glue the “brim pages” to the bottom
of their hat. When everyone is done, read each booklet as a whole group
to cover concepts of print.
The packet also includes upper and lowercase letter assessments, plus “trace and write” upper and lowercase letter worksheets, as well as match the lowercase letter to the uppercase one, which can be used as an easy whole-group assessment or worksheet.
There are covers for the class book, as well as the file folder.
If you’re doing a bulletin board or class book, toss the enclosed letter tiles into a Cat in the Hat hat, to add a bit of silly Seuss fun.
A “Hats Off To Wonderful Work!” poster is also included. Display it in the center of your bulletin board.
