Rebus Readers

                                                I have been using Rebus Readers that come with the mothergoosetime curriculum. The children love them so much ! They have even asked if they can take them home. I noticed that they been checking out the bookshelf more often, in hopes of finding more books like the rebus readers.

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.

                                          Pictures of some of the pages inside of the book.

                                                                 The back of the book.


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.
