I am just beginning to use the Lucy Calkins Units of Study for reading with my kindergarten kiddos. It's a little much, so I'm taking it slow and trying to see how it goes. I observed a couple of great teachers using the Units of Study and they were doing some amazing things with kinder readers. They had cute reading mats for the students to keep in their book baskets (or bags). I decided to make my own. There are actually 3 pages in this file. This is the cover, the other two are for the inside of the folders. Wish me luck!!!
We have been working hard on word families. I made this to go in our writing center to "help" when we are working on our word family books and writing. Hope you can use it too! Here are the ones I made: at, ab, ad, ag, am, an, ap, ed, en, et, ig, in, ip, it, ob, ub, ug, un, ob, go, to,ut
80 Page File. Each of these center activities are easy to set up for your students. I recommend printing them on card stock and laminating them (if you can).
I have made these over the last 2 years to help my Kinder students build on previously taught knowledge. They always enjoy a change in "theme" for the season. Most of my students are ready for activities that involve sounding out simple CVC words, word family words, and simple math problems.
