2017

This printable Alphabet Coloring Book in PDF format has 26 coloring pages with upper case letters and 26 coloring pages with lower case letters. It is only for personal and educational use (classroom, homeschooling). Commercial use not allowed.

It is ideal for children 3 to 5 years of age. 

The Alphabet Coloring Pages can be used individually or collectively to create a book. For creating a book, there is also a cover available.

It comes with upper case and lower case letters. You can make one big book together or make separate upper and lower case letters books. 

Each page has a big letter, pictures that start with the letter, and the letter in different sizes. Let your child name each letter and the pictures that start with the letter. If your child is still very young, trace the letters with your child's finger to help them understand how to make them. You could also shape play dough into the letters if you want. Let your child color in the pictures and the letters to practice their fine motor skills.

Older children (4 or 5 years old) may trace the letters with a pen or pencil. This will support their fine motor skills and prepare them for reading and writing.

Dab a Sight Word Fry 1-100

2017

These dab a sight word sheets are just the first in the series I plan to make.  Each page features five sight words that are color coded for easy instructions. There are several ways you can use these sheets.

1.  Use dab it markers to actually dab the right color on the sight word.
2.  Use crayons or markers to color the appropriate color.
3.  Laminate pages and use colored counters to cover the spots with the appropriate color.

I have been doing #3 with my daughter and so these sheets are color coded to match the set of counters I bought off of Amazon.

Lemonade Read and Write (Cut and Paste) Close Reading

Lemonade Read and Write (Cut and Paste) Close Reading

This product is NOW AVAILABLE in a Read and Write Bundle (Set 5) offering a SAVINGS of 12%.

***Lemonade READ AND WRITE IS #34 OF 34 READ AND WRITES IN MY STORE; HOWEVER, IT IS THE 7th READ AND WRITE TO HAVE FIVE PAGES. THIS READ AND WRITE, BUGS, COMMUNITY HELPERS, SNOW DAY, FISHING, BOWLING, and The RACE READ AND WRITES ALSO INCLUDE A CUT AND PASTE PAGE TO CORRECTLY COMPLETE THE SENTENCE AND AN ADDITIONAL WRITING PAGE NOT INCLUDED IN THE PREVIOUSLY CREATED READ AND WRITES. PLEASE LOOK AT THE PREVIEWS AND READ THE DESCRIPTIONS IN THE OTHER READ AND WRITES BEFORE PURCHASING TO KNOW WHAT IS INCLUDED IN EACH ONE. THANK YOU!

Take a look at the PREVIEW to see each page included.

In this five page Read and Write pack, students will read the one page story and color the pictures. Then there are two pages with five sentences on each page about the story. Each sentence has a missing word. At the end of each sentence, there are two words for students to choose the correct missing word. Students will circle the word that correctly completes the sentence matching the story on the first page, and then write the correct word in the blank. The next page is a cut and paste activity. Five sentences from the story are shown with a missing word. The five missing words are at the bottom of the page for students to cut and glue the correct word to complete the sentence. For both of the above activities, have students go back and find the sentence in the story and underline or highlight the sentence to show where they found the answer in the story (find text evidence – prove it). This will help them complete the activities with the correct answer by going back to the text which is what close reading is all about (digging deeper). The last page is a writing activity that asks two questions: 1. Where would you set up a lemonade stand? 2. How much would you charge for a glass of lemonade? This writing activity gives students the opportunity to make text to self connections. 

This is a great reading and comprehension check for guided reading, a mini lesson, a literacy center, or homework. It is also great for introducing close reading to look back into the story to find the answers.

FREE -- Thanksgiving Graphic Organizer (FREEBIE)

This is the graphic organizer I plan to use with my students for their planning after we read and research about the first Thanksgiving. We will list words to make a Thanksgiving web including any words we think about when discussing the first Thanksgiving. I included a few graphics to help them remember the words they were writing. They can add more graphics if they choose to as they write words. See how many words/phrases they can write. They will use their graphic organizers to write their "First Thanksgiving" book this week.

Emergent Reader Sight Words BUNDLE (he, was, for, on, are)
Jun

2017

Emergent Reader Sight Words BUNDLE (he, was, for, on, are)

SAVE 18% off of these readers when purchasing this bundle.
OR
​This resource is now available in an Emergent Reader Sight Word BUNDLE saving 25% off of the individual readers.

This 141 page bundle includes five emergent readers, one reader for each of the sight words (he, was, for, on, are) which are connected to several CCGPS listed below. 

You can find PREVIEWS for each of the five emergent readers listed below at the links at the very bottom of this page:

Emergent Reader: Sight Word: he
Emergent Reader: Sight Word: was
Emergent Reader: Sight Word: for
Emergent Reader: Sight Word: on
Emergent Reader: Sight Word: are

Each of the five readers include this description:

This 13 page book includes a title page with bubble letters spelling the focused sight word for students to color, then 10 pages include a black and white picture at the top of each page with a sentence using the focused sight word. There are two more pages asking students to draw a picture of their own and write a sentence of their own using the sight word, and then the final page asks students to trace the sight word three times and then write it three times on their own on the blank line. After this, there are 13 additional pages with the exact pictures and words as the first 13 pages. The only difference is that on this second copy of the book, the sight word being focused on is dotted on each page for students to trace. 

The pages of the book are not numbered giving the teacher flexibility of removing pages not desired when using in small guided reading groups for differentiation. 

This 13 page book is designed so that you can copy the book, cut in half, staple, and then it is ready for use. 

Students can benefit from this reader by tracking print, identifying spaces between words, identifying particular letters of the alphabet, recognizing sounds (beginning, middle, and ending) in each word, and reading sight words and grade level text. For extension activities, students could add another sentence to each page giving details about each picture shown. The black and white pictures allow students the opportunity to color the pictures. This reader is great for guided reading groups, homework, or literacy center activities. 

***This is the third bundle of 20 bundles for emergent readers for the first hundred popular sight words (high frequency words) in the works. The readers will build on the words focused on in the previous readers as much as possible. 

ELACCKRF1a. Follow words from left to right, top to bottom, and page-by-page.
ELACCKRF1d. Recognize and name all upper and lowercase letters of the alphabet.
ELACCKRF1b. Recognize that spoken words are represented in written language by specific sequences of letters.
ELACCKRF1c. Understand that words are separated by spaces in print. ELACCKRF3a. Demonstrate basic knowledge of one-to-one letter-sound correspondences by producing the primary or many of more frequent sounds for each consonant. 
ELACCKRF3c. Read common high-frequency words by sight. 
ELACCKRF4. Read emergent-reader texts with purpose and understanding.
