|The cover of the book "The Button Box" by Margarette Reid|
This year, my students really got into the activity. They were so happy to find buttons that were the same that they put them in my hands and said "Feel my buttons! I have stars!", "I have smooth buttons", or "I have wood buttons!" I was so proud of them, especially because their language has improved so much since August - almost 90% of my students did not speak English when they entered my class.
Here is a book that I used in kindergarten for guided reading. The students can shadow-write the sentence for most of the book, and then at the end they write their own sentence and draw their own pictures of buttons. I hope your kids enjoy this.
