While I know that St. Patrick’s Day is just a few days away, I thought I would share these fun, free Shamrock Mini-Books that I made for emergent readers. Although the last page of the mini-books in all three versions mentions St. Patrick’s Day, it is also totally possible to just leave that page off and they suddenly become appropriate for any time of the year. Bonus!
This printable is a 16 page document which includes three versions of the same easy reader. The easy reader uses repetition to focus on words like look, it, and is. Readers will also become familiar with a word that might not be familiar to them: clover.
There are also color words for green, blue, purple, pink, yellow, orange, green, and red.
In one version of the mini-book, children simply read the pages that appear with already colored in clovers. In a second version, the words all still appear, but the shamrocks are now all white. Students should color the clovers the appropriate color based on the page. In the last version, the shamrocks are already colored in, but the student must write in the correct color word.
Different versions of the mini-book will be appropriate for different children. You will download all of the version together, however, so this means that you can go back to a familiar story as they grow.
