Christmas Easy Reader - Free [Mini Book] Printable
These printable mini books were like gold in my kindergarten classroom. I always used ones that highlighted our sight word(s) for the day, they are great for language development and early readers with simple repetition, the kids are able to make them their own by coloring them, and many times they also focus on an additional skill. This mini book in particular, focuses on identifying colors and color words.
Since Kade is not quite a kindergartner (pump the breaks - he's still my baby), he needed a lot of support working on his book but he has been enjoying coloring lately so he was into it. I did for him what I typically would have done with my kindergartners as well. For Kade, I went through on my own ahead of time and colored lightly over each color word with the correct color crayon. This way, we could just look at the color on the page, talk about which color it is, find the matching crayon and go to town. For the kinders, we would do this together and I would have them reading me the color words on each page. Once they had all of the color words underlined or lightly colored on, they could go back through and complete the book on their own.
Each page reads "I see a [color word] ornament." The final page concludes the book with "I see a Christmas tree!"
This is a great activity to do at home with your little one while you're stuck inside on a cold day of winter break, and also great for preschool and kindergarten classrooms. Feel free to PIN this free printable mini book or share with someone you think could use it!

Once the book is printed, cut each page in half and organize them by page number. You may have to trim a little of the edges depending on your personal preference. I always prefer 3 staples to bind these books as I find that the pages turn better with 3 than 2. I also folded and creased the pages back before giving it to Kade to avoid page-turning frustration. ;) Enjoy!
