Sight Words and Word Families Week 4

Hello again! This week I will be sharing 5 sight word activities and 5 word family activities. They are are super fun and will keep your kiddos engaged. Hopefully. I have included sample pages of each activity so you can try them out with your kiddos. If you like them and find them useful, I have also included links to the products in my store so that you can purchase them. At the very end of this post, I have included an EXCLUSIVE FREEBIE just for you! Read about Sight Words and Word Families Week 1 here. Read about Sight Words and Word Families Week 2 here. Read about Sight Words and Word Families Week 3 here.  This week’s sight words are: at, down, go, up Click the image above to download the sample word wall pages or HERE to purchase the complete packet from my store. The focus word family is AP. All the word family activities in this post are included in my AP Word Family packet that can be viewed HERE in my store. Let’s start with the sight word activities. I will begin with what I think is the most beneficial activity. You can use this activity for reading, writing and learning sentence structure. I have included cards that you can use in a pocket chart center. Kiddos are required to organise the cards to make a sentence. I have also included a black and white version of all the sentences; children cut out the cards and arrange them to make a sentence that makes sense. I have also included answer cards that you can keep together with a key ring. You can use the answer cards first as reading cards, then once your kiddos are more confident with sentence structure, use them as intended for this activity. I know I have too many photos for this activity but, guys, I just love it and I know you will too. If you like the look of the sample pages, click HERE to purchase Sight Words Build a Sentence packet. Best of all? For a limited time it’s only $1.00! Next activity. Sight Word Play Dough Mats. Am I right in assuming these are self-explanatory? Use them as intended with play dough. Or use them with dry-erase markers. Click HERE if you’d like to purchase the Sight Word Play Dough Mats. Up next are some sight word q-tip cards. Only I didn’t use a q-tip and paint; I... read more

Alphabet Playdough Mats with Correct Letter Formation

Today I want to talk to you about my Alphabet Playdough Mats. This packet includes both upper and lower case letters and they are available on a cute aqua polka-dotted background or with no background. Best of all, I have included several different letter formation variations for those tricky letters we can’t all seem to agree on how to write 😉 As the name suggests, I made these mats to be used with playdough. However, feel free to get your kiddos to “trace” along the letter formation path with small manipulatives. Or you can laminate the pages or place them inside a plastic pocket and your kiddos can trace over the letters with an erasable marker. You can also print out a set for each child, pop the pages into a folder with plastic sleeves and children can practice tracing over each letter as often as they need to. Don’t feel like you need to keep the upper and lower case letters together; feel free to cut along the middle line to separate them. Make a hole at the top of each set and secure them together with a keyring. Laminate the pages for durability and use with dry erase markers to practice letter formation. Some other suggestions for use include: Alphabet order – children place the letters in order.Alphabet floor matching game – children match the lower case letter to the upper case letter.Beginning sound sorting activity – children sort items on top of the correct beginning letter.Find-the-pair game – print 2 copies and you can play a giant matching game! Turn the cards upside down and children take turns in flipping over 2 cards – if it’s a match, the child keeps the cards, if not, the cards are turned upside down again. Game play continues until all the cards have been matched. The child with the most pairs wins. If you’d like to try some pages from this packet, click HERE or the image below.

FREE CH Digraph Printable Activities & Worksheets

Guys, today’s post is going to be long. I mean, seriously, you may as well make yourself comfortable and grab a cup of coffee or tea. No, not really. It’s only long because there are a ton of pictures but pictures are worth a thousand words so, in reality, this could have been a much longer post! You’re welcome 😉 Ugh. Why am I rambling?! Let’s just get into it, shall we? Today, I want to share with you the contents of my CH digraph packet. Not just in photos to show you how to set things up and use them, but also as an exclusive and totally free download! So, if you want to skip all the photos and just get to the free CH digraph packet so that you can download it and try it out, scroll all the way to the bottom and click the CH digraph cover and it’s all yours. First up, is a CH digraph poster. Just print, laminate and hang up on your wall. Next is another poster but this time with words that your kiddos can read! (Am I the only one who, when reading through the list of words, is tempted to make up a story using the words in sequence!? Let me know if you’re the same!!) Next is a set of word wall cards with a header. The header can double up as a tracing card. The cards can be cut into strips as I have done or you can cut each card individually and hand-pick the ones you wish to use. Some cards have images and some don’t. Now, these can also be used as cards for a “Write the Room” activity. You would need to cut out all the cards and display them around the room. Provide your kiddos with a recording page, clipboard and pencil so that they can write down all the words that they find. Voila. A simple yet fun way to get your kiddos writing! Next are the Word Slider cards. I created a cute envelope for you to store the cards inside but if you don’t want to use it, you can always just use a regular envelope. But, in my opinion, cute envelopes make learning more fun. Children slowly pull out a card and say the sound of each letter or letter group as it appears, then they blend all those sounds together to read a word. A picture confirms... read more

Colors Flip Books

Flip books. Not flipbooks… not those ity-bity million-paged books that you flip quickly to reveal a short “animation.” Nup. Those aren’t the books I’m talking about; I’m talking about the ah-mazing paper-saving booklet that you literally make from one single piece of paper. Flip Books. And today, I want to show you the cute Colors Flip Book packet that I created to help teach your little ones not only their colors and color words, but also how to read and write a simple sentence. For that reason, I have included a couple of recording sheets in this packet to help you focus on your goals! Here are all the colors I have included – of course, there are two grey/gray pages to accommodate for American and Australian spelling. What can you do with the colored booklets? Well, you can use them as a model to show children how their assembled flip book will look like. They can also be stored in the reading corner. What’s this I think you’re thinking…? You’d like to see what the black and white copies look like? Sure thing! And. Here is a pic to show you what the recording pages look like. As you can see, the first worksheet focus mainly on coloring and some color-specific words while the second worksheet is perfect for your beginning writers. One thing that kiddos – and sometimes adults – get confused about is how these booklets are assembled. Here is a pic collage to literally take all the guess work out of it! And now, to the good stuff! FREEBIES! Click the images below to download each of the flip book and recording pages. If you have tried out these pages and would like to purchase the COMPLETE PACKET, please click HERE or on the picture below! Till next time, Happy Teaching... read more
