Does the thought of hot chocolate make you feel good? Here are some lovely readers to give your kids that warm cozy feeling!
- Words: this version uses cocoa powder, sugar, water and milk. It uses simple words to make it more possible for beginner readers to feel like they can ‘read’ it successfully. The words used are: mix, add, whisk, cook, add milk, pour and drink.
- Sentences: this version uses solid chocolate, milk, cinnamon and marshmallows. It contains simple sentences for more advanced readers, or for earlier readers to be able to pick out some words, particularly 4-letter phonetically-spelled words such as chop, melt, milk and mugs.
What to do
You can download the Hot Chocolate Readers here.
Print off the books you want to use. There are 2 versions and each can be printed in colour or black and white. Each book uses only 1 piece of paper and you only need to cut one slit and then fold it into an 8-page book. There are full instructions in the download.
Using the books
- The simpler version uses a dotted font for the words so your kids can trace over the words for writing practice.
- The black and white versions are, of course, great for colouring in!
- There is space on the front page for kids to write their name.
- Ask children to try and fold the books themselves as they’ll need to focus and it’s great for fine motor skills.
- Read the books with the children, ask them to read to each other and read for themselves.
- It would be really great if you could read it, then make hot chocolate together and sit down and read the books again!
