Ready2Read Level 3 is finally here and I am SO excited be able to post about Unit 1! There will be a total of 10 units in Level 3. Although the lesson plans are designed to work through all the materials in a week, we actually took about 1 1/2 weeks to get through each unit. The most important thing is that we had TONS of fun learning new sight words, word families and long vowels. I must warn you though, there are a massive amount of pictures in this blog post, and I didn’t even capture everything we did!
Level 3 also includes a Common Core Standards Alignment Chart for all of the Reading Foundational Skills for 1st Grade!
This is a great activity for some hands-on learning. Kids are tracing their sight words, stamping the sight words, cutting out their sight words and then pasting their sight words into the correct spots. Tons of interaction in just a single printable!
Word Family Word Sort
The goal is to read and sort all of the word family pictures into the correct sections. The fun part is to make a scene with off of the “Wonderland” printables! So much FUN!
We used our Word Family Cards to play Go Fish (Word Family Style). She beat me…really…she beat me:) It is all about making it fun, especially at this age!
Color by Sight Word….an all time favorite! We have been doing this since Level 1!
Coloring + Reading Sight Words = FUN Learning 🙂
It doesn’t get better than that!
These mini-books are great for fluency! Kids get to color them, cut them out, assemble them and read them! True ownership of their learning!
Box Them Up! Elkonin Boxes This really is a perfect challenge for kids! They use Elkonin Boxes to put their word families into the correct spots. Elkonin Boxes are great for stretching words out by sounds and helps to build better decoding skills
This is such an effective way to help students identify words with different fonts! When students can read words in a variety of settings, they become much more confident readers!
