We will be releasing 15 sets {three for each short vowel}.  I have already released free _at Q-Tip Painting, _at Word Puzzles, _et Play Dough Mats, _et Funny Font Word Hunt, _ig Mini Book, _op Roll and Graph and _an Worksheets. Sometimes you may also find entire sets free within blog posts or in our newsletters or blog emails!  Full sets will also be listed in my Teacher’s Notebook Shop for $1.25 each and when I am all done I will bundle the entire set at a discounted price!

 

How we are Using These…

We are using these alongside of our You Can Read Sight Words. We basically just added this in to our other Kindergarten curriculum.

Here’s a peek at what we used during this unit. She is picking up the word families much quicker now so we aren’t using as many of the activities.  Once she has mastered the words and feels confident, we move on. That’s why you’ll see less in this post than previous posts.

Funny Fonts ~ each word has a color, you can use dot paint or simply circle the words using crayons or markers. We have even used colored stickers to put on the words before!  The words are written in different fonts to give exposure to all sorts of writing.

Sentence Search ~ we use two different colored markers for this activity.  One color for the focus words and one for any other words she can read independently.  Then at the end we read the sentences together her reading circled words and me reading the others. Funny thing, she’s advanced so much that she is circling all of the words on the page now!
