I am in the midst of introducing our Maryam, 6 years old, to Sight Words.
Among many ways, she is more interested in themed activities.
If we are to read a book, then it must be a book of her choice to get her attention.
Well, naturally nursery rhymes book win it all!
So today I am sharing with you one of our favorite Nursery Rhyme Emergent Reader : Old MacDonald Had a Farm.
See, even you are singing the tune!
The Nursery Rhyme Emergent Reader
This is a low prep reader. Which means you would have to cut it into half and staple the pages together.
I also made the pages without numbers so that you can choose which farm animals you want to sing, and which are not.
About This Nursery Rhyme Emergent Reader
This reader aimed to help kids remembering Sight Word with singing.
So I have break the readers into few parts.
For this post, I am sharing Emergent Reader Set 1 which only focuses on the sight word ‘a’ and well, introduction to the animal characters in the nursery rhyme.
The Sight Words is colored, to make it easy for kids to remember.
Be sure to try them out with your kids, and let me know how it goes!
Suggestion to Use
The way we use it is, first, I read the whole sentence.
When I arrived at the Sight Word, I point to the Sight Words.
But when I read the animal words, I show the picture and the words; so that my kids know that the words representing that specific picture.
Come and try our Nursery Rhyme Emergent Reader, and let me know how it goes!
