Talk about the Puppy

Talk about the Puppy is a 2-page reading and writing lesson for Grade 1. The family debate whether Sam’s pup is black and white or not. But they get the puppies mixed up. A conversation in the home is the text followed by 4  writing tasks, and a colouring in.

Anyone can use this whether teaching one to one or a small group. It should take a half hour to do. Self-contained and ready to go.
