A predictable chart could also be used for shared reading.  The children could also use the word names to match with the pictures.  This activity is a good visual discrimination activity.

 The text could read as follows:

Summer is a time for sun.  Summer is a time for sunglasses.  Summer is a time for suntan lotion.  Summer is a time for bathing suits.  Summer is a time for sand sculptures.  Summer is a time for sand toys.  Summer is a time for water toys.  Summer is a fun time!

Poem - March Wind

We made a brand new kite today,

And soon as we were through

We came out here to fly it,

And the wind just blew and blew,Sun Summer Craft

And now the kite's a tiny speck;

We've used up all the string;

I'd like to go and get some more,

Anne's such a tiny thing

To hold the kite all by herself;

I wouldn't let her try,

For fear I might look back and see

Anne sailing through the sky.     By Eleanor Dennis
