Each page of Here is St. Nicholas contains a predictable sentence missing the word “here” Students will cut apart the letters to spell ‘here’ (included), then unscramble and glue the letters into each page to correctly spell the sight word. Each page of the booklet also features pictures to support the text.
Copy Here is St. Nicholas book and the corresponding scrambled word cutouts for each student (PDF pages 4-7). Separate book pages by cutting each 8.5x11” sheet in half and staple the books together for students.
