Big, Scary Monster!

I got the idea for this book after reading Go Away, Big Green Monster!, so this book could be used in conjunction with it, or in a Monster Unit.  The book is designed in a full page, portrait format.  All text is at the bottom of the page and written in an easy to read, expanded format.  All pages build up to the big, scary monster at the end of the book.  All text supported by picture clues.  Students color each page to match the text.  Sight words used are: these, are, big, my, black, is, orange, this, blue, red, yellow, green, purple, a.

Monster Bash

This book has certainly taken on a new twist! :)  Even I'm surprised.  This book started out as just another emergent reader that would reinforce color words and ordinals as you see in the sample page.  However, with a few twists and turns, it has turned into an "emergent reader chapter book" thanks to an idea shared with me by Barb.


The book can be a stand-alone emergent reader, or if you wish, it can be a chapter book .. your choice.

The text format of this book follows the same sentence pattern as in the sample page above except for the beginning and ending of the story.  The book is created in a full page, portrait format  with expanded text for easier reading.  Sight words used are: a, was, came, an, had, they, then.  All text is at the bottom of the page.  The pages are not numbered.  (13 pages)


The book will be sold in 2 parts.  You may purchase just the first part, or purchase the second part as well which will make it a chapter book.  (2 chapters)


At this time, I have only created Pocketchart Picture Cards for the first part of the book, not the second chapter.  It has all the pictures from the book already formatted in the size to fit in your pocketchart.  Just copy the pictures onto cardstock, color, laminate, and cut apart and you're ready to go.  The pocketchart pictures are definite timesavers!
