|"Puff the Magic Dragon" book cover|
My pre-k students are really into fantasy books right now, so they asked me if I could make a dragon book that they could read by themselves. I loved this idea, since my kiddos are really beginning to spell words. Since color words are so important for the beginning of kindergarten, I thought I could prepare my students by making them this book:
This book reminded me of a whole series of books that I made for my kindergarten students that moved them along from reading at DRA level 6 to level 18 in some cases. The whole fantasy genre is so fascinating to young children, both boys and girls alike. I decided to put up on TPT an entire Fantasy Guided Reading Unit that is ideal for advanced kindergarten students but also useful for first grade.
I hope your students enjoy taking a pretend visit to Honalee!
