The first rebus reader that I introduced the children to came with a easy to do art project to go along with the story.
The Surprise Party
Here are the picture cards that came with the story.
Our Peek a Boo Craft.
Mumble used the moveable alphabet with the picture cards.
What is it?
This rebus reader introduces the children to the sight words it, is , a.

During our line time before lunch we play "say it fast" using the sight words. I have the sight words hanging on a clothesline.
I point to each word as I read them. For example I will say "it is a c-a-t". The children will then say the word cat fast. It has really improved their phonemic awareness. It is truly a fun way to learn sight words. We also have been turn taking on who is going to read the sight words and sound out a word.
Since the children all have been asking to take books home I made up book buddy bags with the rebus readers inside. They have been really good at bringing the materials back to school the same way they left.
