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...

FREE Valentine’s Day Sight Words Activity

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? Well, we are hoping that by changing things up, our kiddos will approach learning with wonder and excitement. 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. Kiddos pick a tray, read the word on it and use the included heart letters to build that word. It’s simple. It’s fun. But I know. There is a lot of cutting. I know. But if you laminate them, they will last a long time. They will. It’s totally worth the investment! Also, I have included a recording page. I mean, we want to know that are kiddos are actually doing something and we need evidence of that work! If you have a totally different sight word list than the one I have provided, you may like to check out the editable sight word packet by clicking here or the picture below. If you like the idea of editable sight word resources, then you may be interested in the...

Click here to purchase the complete Pre-Primer Sight Words Word Wall packet and here for the complete Word Family Posters packet.) Let’s begin by looking at some sight word beginning and struggling reader booklets. By far, my favourite booklets are the flip books. (Click here to view them in my store, or the picture to download free samples.) Children are not only reading the focus word in context, but if you using the accompanying worksheets, your beginning writers can also practice writing a sentence correctly. These booklets are definitely going to boost your beginning reader’s self esteem when they see that they were able to make their own booklet AND also read it! Another favourite reading activity of mine comes from the Sight Words Fluency Reading...
