Children love to read rebus stories. The illustrations give them positive identification of words in the story. Here's 6 all new rebus stories. Use them as independent or group learning activities. Photocopy and give each student a book to read and create in. Colour the rebus illustrations and the cover, laminate and bind. Insert a paper clip on each page. Independently, or as a group, go through the story. Each student can take turns reading the book, adding his or her own illustrations. The 6 rebus stories included are: Ingrid and her 100 Hats, You Can Make Magic!, A Handy Handprint, The Little Red Hen, The Storybook Grandma, and My Goodnight Book. This Chants & Classifications lesson provides a teacher and student section with reading passages, rebus stories, and creative thinking activities to create a well-rounded lesson plan.
