Building on the success of Hello Reader!, the Hello Writer! books have been created especially for new readers, with stories and hands-on activities to provide practice with reading & writing skills. In I SEE A LEAF, Kate and Jill each give a leaf to their teacher Mrs. Hill. Not to be outdone, Jack gives a huge armful of leaves to Mrs. Hill--and the class uses the leaves to make a "tree." The enjoyable story has familiar words, short sentences, and colorful pictures. In addition, a Word List and hands-on activities that come after the story provide practice with skills such as word and sentence building, grammar, reading and listening comprehension, following directions, and handwriting and letter formation.
