Family Book and Poem

We have been busy talking about the roles of family members in pre-k!  This "Family" poem was perfect for my students because of the repetitive text and picture clues.  We added it to our reading folders at the end of the week.  
Included in your free download, found below, is a "Family" little book and one page poem.  We used the poem for a shared reading experience.  If you aren't familiar with shared reading, the students all have a copy of the same text and the teacher also has a copy.  The teacher can model reading strategies within the shared reading and students also have the opportunity to mark up on their copy of the text.  
We worked to use highlighters to find the word "a" throughout the poem.  Then I had my students use their highlighter as a pointer to read the poem while pointing to the words.  
I was really proud of them for working to find the word "a" in the poem.  They did a great job!
This would also be something you could have out at a dramatic play center for your students to read.  Students can read the poem while pretending to be different family members at the center.
