     These monthly homework pages are a good way to extend learning to home. The front of the homework page has a place to track counting, reading at home, sight words and alphabet linking chart checklist. Students will practice writing, beginning sounds, rhyming, and counting for the first four weeks. The back of the page is titled "Extra Practice" and allows families to choose extension activities that are fun to do. Each week there are also QR code links to stories to listen to. FILE ALLOWS YOU TO EDIT 1) Letter to Parents 2) Sight Words
  • They are 26 alphabet mini-books, the vowels are all short except for the "unicorn" in U. The books are perfect for independent reading time. Also good for vocabulary building in ESL/EFL.
  • Sight words - learning primer sight words? Your beginning reader will find these worksheets fun! You will need crayons, glue, scissors, a highlighter and alphabet stamps. I recommend the ones from Educational Insights. This pack has a master list, flashcards and the worksheets. I use the flashcards as an assessment tool, I will give the student the pack of flashcards and have them go through it. When I first start, I will sit side by side with the student and read it to them. After they start recognizing words and working through the worksheets, I will have them go through the pack and I will record which ones they read right by placing a small dot on the master list. When the student masters the whole list, move on to the next “Sight Word Fun” packet.
  • CVC word families: Student will identify, read, and write CVC words. There is also a great center activity for the student to color, cut, and staple letters to form CVC words. Each word family activity page has a section where student colors in all of the words that belong to the CVC family, then student will sound out and write the word in the picture. Using a spinner the student will spin and spell the CVC word. Another activity I like to use as a separate center activity is making a mini book that the students can read.
