Flip the Sounds and Phoneme Segmentation

Phoneme Segmentation Cards for use during Literacy Stations or Small Group Reading.  I use these to jump start my reading groups.  I just start with one and pass all around the table, quickly.  Cards are flying everywhere but because they need to touch each sound, there are no sounds pushed together or omitted. I can honestly say, my kids cheer when I pull these cards out?!  Gotta love that!

 Flip the Sounds are great for students to use during Literacy Stations/Word Work. This pack includes beginning, middle, and ending sounds to flip.  Students will use an Expo marker to write real or nonsense words.  Another favorite!

All About Me Revise!

I'm spending some of the summer updating and revising some of my older products.  So, check out the new and improved All About Me Unit.  It's a great way to start out your year!!TPT or TN

Far Out Fill-Ins and K & C Chart

Far Out Fill-Ins is a great way for students to practice fluency and help their comprehension.  They will fill in with words that make sense. TN or TPT

Great chart to help aid student's during sounding out a word.  TPT or TN
My grade level is now teaching explicit phonics using Fundations.  I am learning so much about the rules of phonics (you know all that we never learned but are expected to know and teach!).  Recently, we learned the rules about whether or not to use the c or k when sound out a word that includes this sound.  My students love having this knowledge so I thought I'd share a chart you can use too.  We used our school poster maker to blow this up and hang in our room.

Star Writer's Writing Paper

REVISION TIME...again.  I've just decided this is going to be one of those products/projects that's on-going.  Check out what has just been added.  All levels in my class were able to complete the page on the left.  I was blown away with what they did.  My high-fliers had success with the page on the right.  But I'm betting by the end of the year, all of my kiddos will be there.  It's so exciting!

Some days you get an idea and wonder why it took so long to put it all together?  We'll, this is one of those times.  About 2 years ago, I came up with the Star Writer's Checklist and an actual checklist to attach to papers.  So today, I thought, "why in the world don't I actually put the checklist on the writing paper?"  BINGO!!

Checklist actually ON the writing paper now
