Bees seem to be one of the
hot classroom themes for the coming school year, so we created this book to go
along with the theme. I also have a Busy, Busy Bee unit that this book
will fit into perfectly. I think this book has turned out to be the cutest
one yet! And unless something happens, you'll be seeing more of Buzzy Bee.
Two more books have already been written and will go on the illustrator's
drawing board soon. Carol has learned SO MUCH about drawing computer
graphics in the short time that she's been working with me and it certainly
shows in this book. I'm not doing a Bee Theme this year, but I'm going to
make sure that somehow I incorporate this book! :)
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. This book was created to introduce or
reinforce the position words concept. The book is created in a full page,
portrait format with expanded text for easier reading. Sight words
used are: house, in, the, and, on, behind, cat, under, over, around, through,
of, out, was, a, he, little. All text is at the bottom of the page.
The pages are not numbered. (11 pages)
I have also created Pocketchart
Picture Cards for this book. 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.
Even the pocketchart pictures are precious! ;)
