FREE Easter-Themed Interactive Sight Word Reader

Tomorrow is Palm Sunday and the beginning of Holy Week. As my students learn about the Stations of the Cross and the very sad story of Jesus dying on the cross, I continue to remind them of the story's happy ending... that Jesus rose from the dead!

Young students are so literal and are very concrete learners. I want them to be aware that God is always at work creating new life around us. Spring is the perfect time to draw attention to this because plants will soon form buds and begin to bloom, while many baby animals are born in the natural world around us.

I created my newest Interactive Sight Word Reader, "Signs of New Life from the Lord" to reinforce this valuable teaching point. Four of the book's pages depict plants and animals in the early stages of life (a chick hatching, a plant sprouting, a tree filled with blossoms, and a baby calf). The final page of the book reinforces the true source of life: the Cross. This book is a great way to integrate sight word mastery and age-appropriate reading materials with Religion content.

Like all of my other Religious resources, this item is FREE. Click the image below to download.

Wishing you a Blessed Holy Week

    1. Carol, I would love to know where you work! I, too, teach in a Lutheran school. I'm in Illinois, just outside Chicago. It's so nice to see another Lutheran teacher out there in the blog world!
