Picture Stories for Kindergarten

Assalamu alaikum,

*3 More New Stories Added Alhamdulillah!*

Usually around March or April, students in Kindergarten have learned a sufficient number of sight words to be able to read short text independently insha'Allah. Some children who have strong literacy skills may reach this milestone earlier insha'Allah.

Alhamdulillah, I designed some stories for Kindergarten children to use to strengthen and/or practice
independent reading skills, practice reading sight words, and filling in missing elements based on facts that were in a story insha'Allah. These are nice to use during silent sustained reading too insha'Allah. Also, you can use the clipart in MS Word to make other cards to fit the stories insha'Allah. This way, you can provide variety and challenge at the same time insha'Allah.

 The pictures have a sideways view a bit because it was the only thing I could do to avoid the glare...sorry about that.

A while ago I bought photo album paper for another craft idea I had in mind but I never used it. They came in handy here alhamdulillah. I cut the photo album paper to the size of the stories and I left two holes so I can store the stories in a notebook and continue to add stories to the book later insha'Allah. I recommend laminating the cards for durability. And I'll let you in on a secret that you may already know: do you know that clear packing tape is a great laminate if you can't get to the copy centre? It doesn't look as professional but masha'Allah, it does the job (smile). Here are the stories insha'Allah (there are three in this file insha'Allah):

If you'd like more of these stories please let me know because I may not upload new ones as fast as you need/want them. If I know that you would like more it will stay in my mind insha'Allah and I won't forget insha'Allah.

Enjoy insha'Allah!
