Thanksgiving Book

Oct 26, 2016

Activity for ages 3 to 5.

I love using emergent readers with my students.  The repetitive text and high frequency words help build their fluency and confidence with reading.  If you’re looking for a fun little reader book for Thanksgiving, we’ve got you covered. Kids will love reading about these yummy Thanksgiving foods! It’s the perfect compliment to our Thanksgiving Activity Pack.

Getting Ready

To prepare this Thanksgiving book (below), I first printed a set of all eight pages for each of my students.

There are two of each book page per page so I just cut the book in half and added two staples on the side.

Then I grabbed some crayons for my students to add color to the pages of the book. I was all set!

Thanksgiving Foods Book

To introduce this book, my students and I had a quick discussion about Thanksgiving Day foods.

Then we looked through the book to find high frequency words, letters, punctuation, spaces, etc.

We practiced pointing to each word on the page to read the sentences.  Each page includes repetitive text made from high frequency: “We like to eat the…”

My early readers were able to use the pictures on each page to help them determine the Thanksgiving food shown.  My students loved coloring in the pages of their book.

This little book is perfect to use with your whole class or in a small guided reading group.  Students can keep their book in their book baskets for independent and buddy reading.  It could even be sent home for students to read with their families!
