Rebus stories give emerging readers the encouragement and success that they need. The picture provides a word clue, while establishing left to right tracking, and reinforcing the idea that words make sentences that make stories. The stories in this unit tell about the senses, things that are big and small, and the changing of the seasons. The creative activities encourage the students to express their ideas through art. Our unit includes longer chants for the slightly more advanced emerging reader, such as "I Love The Fall", "I Love My School", "The Story Of A Leaf", "I Love Winter", "I Love Spring", and "Summer Colours". 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.
