It’s almost here! March Madness is just days away and I can’t wait! Even though “our team” isn’t in the running this year, I love watching basketball, especially during March Madness. I don’t participate in any bracket challenges, but I do like to fill out my own, just to see how I fare. Call me crazy, but I find it fun.
My little ones, however, are not as excited about basketball. So, I give them fun activities to do while the games are on, that bring us all together. These fun readers are a great way to practice sight words and learning to read short sentences while learning about basketball. These fun Emergent Readers are available only to my SUBSCRIBERS, so be sure to click the link and follow the directions to grab yours!! If you love these, don’t miss all my other Emergent Readers!!
Emergent Readers Include:
- Sight word(s) based on the picture
- Short sentences including the sight word(s)
- Sight word(s) is traceable in the sentence
- Fill-in-the-blank word(s)
Don’t forget to follow us on Pinterest for more great ideas.
