Fall is always one of my favorite times of the school year. It has so many fun themes to it from apples, pumpkin, leaves…. and even scarecrows! I love adding in some fun, seasonal learning activities to our day and this free Scarecrow Easy Reader is a great way to work on sight words, tracking print, and reading color words!
*Pair with our Fall Easy Readers Pack for Kindergarten!
Scarecrow Easy Reader
The best thing about this easy reader is perhaps how easy it is to assemble! Just print double-sided, cut in half, and staple. Then you instantly have two books.
This makes it great for making classroom copies, or gives you an extra copy if you are reading it with your child at home!
The book has repetitive text and a focus on the sight words my and is, along with the decodable word hat.
It also focuses on color words red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, brown, black, pink, and white.
Kids trace and read the color words, then show that they know the color word by coloring the scarecrow’s hat to match.
For younger students who do not read color words yet or are just being introduced, you could do it together. Or, you could highlight the color words in the correct color crayon ahead of time and make the activity self-correcting.
This gives them exposure to the words along with support.
After coloring, kids can read it aloud to themselves, to you, or to a partner to practice print tracking and expression!
