Read Locally Waco: Don’t eat me, Monster!
Read Locally Waco is a project to promote literacy in Waco. Throughout the semester we will post stories that use sight words our children are learning in Waco ISD. You can print these stories and lists of words to use with your children or with other children in your life. This week’s story uses words from the First Grade Sight Word List. For a printable version of this story and word list, click here: Don’t eat me, Monster.
Don’t eat me, Monster!
What was that sound? I heard it again!
I think it’s a monster – please don’t let him in!
I know I am little and look very sweet,
But please, Mr. Monster, I’m not good to eat.
I come from a town where the kids all taste bad.
Don’t eat me! Don’t eat me! If you do, you’ll be sad.
I’m yucky and greasy and covered with fuzz.
Who tastes better than me? Almost everyone does!
I’ll make a burrito out of big brother, Zack.
When I add a few chips, he will make a good snack.
I’ll give you a tip, because you’re my good buddy…
My sister tastes good. She’s crunchy and nutty.
If I were you, Monster, I’d go for a pizza.
Or maybe some nachos topped with old Aunt DeLisa.
I didn’t bathe. My breath really stinks.
You could eat Uncle Tony. He smells like hot links!
DON’T EAT ME, MONSTER! I TASTE LIKE GREEN SLIME!
Oh… Hi, Momma and Daddy…I saw you the whole time…
