The Big Yellow Bus

This week is a short week due to records day and the beginning of spring break!  I made a few literacy center activities to go with our Big Book for the next few weeks, "The Big Yellow Bus".

This is a cute story that is based on the "People On the Bus" song.  It is a pattern story and it is fun to act out with the kids after we have read through it a few times together.  This would be a great story to use at the beginning of the year for a school theme.

I made a beginning sounds activity based on the characters and elements in the story.  My parapro will use this in a small group with children who still need to work on this skill. Click on the picture below to download.


Next, I have a school themed rhyming activity.  Click on the picture below to download.

 A nonsense/real word sorting activity with a school bus theme.  Click on the picture to download.



A school bus themed sight word game using some of the characters from the story.  The first set of words are the kindergarten sight words according to out Harcourt Trophies reading series.  The second set will be used with my above level readers and come from words on the Dolch word lists not covered by our series.  The above level readers complained that the words were not hard enough on the last sight word game I made, so I used higher list words this time :) .  Click on the picture to download.


Last but not least, we are still working on short "e" word families so I made a word sort for the -ed and -et families. Click on the picture to download.


Hope someone finds something they can use!
