Author:  Rebecca Van Slyke

(Support the author by buying this book)

This a great book that asks questions about where clothing would go. "Where does underwear go? On your chest? No. On your head? No. Underwear goes on your bottom."

Focus Core Words: Where, Do / Does, Go / Goes, No, On


1st read: While reading this book, have students answer questions as yes or no. Laugh together as you read about the kids dressing. 

2nd read: Reread story. This time omit a target core word as you read. For example, omit "go" and wait for students to say or point to the missing word.  "Where does hat.....?"

3rd read: Introduce fringe vocabulary and play matching games to label and categorize clothes and body parts. Point to finge as you read or answer comprehension questions by showing corresponding picture card. 

4th read: Use core and fringe to read parts of the book together. For example: have student ask question and teacher can answer following the text in the book.
