This is going to be a quick post. I just wanted to share what we were working on in class. I wanted to do a little mini unit with my firsties on animals in winter. I created a little projectable reader last night and shared it with my FB followers.
I also made it in a black and white version so they would have one to color and take home.
After reading the story today, I thought that I could make this into a little reading assessment as well. Tomorrow, we will reread our story, and complete one of the activities below. These could be used to differentiate your instruction as well. The sort page with the words doesn't include all the animals that were in the story, but my students love pulling up pictures on the projector and talking about them. This will bring a great discussion on the animals that weren't in the story.
This is my first book I've created like this. Usually my stories are to the form of Brown Bear, Brown Bear. I hope you enjoy this, and if so....I do LOVE comments ;)

Have a good night y'all. Happy (almost) Friday! :)
