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

February. The month of all things pink and and all things heart shaped. The month where we bring out all our Valentine themed resources. Why do we do it?

On that note, I’d like to share with you all a TOTALLY FREE Valentine’s Day sight word building activity. This is a Valentine’s Day sight word building activity.

I mean, we want to know that are kiddos are actually doing something and we need evidence of that work!
