I am participating in the Teacher Appreciation Jackpot.  Today (MAY 6TH), for one day only, you may download this lesson for FREE:  Although this lesson is no longer FREE, it is on sale for $3.20 until May 8th.

This packet is aligned with kindergarten and 1st grade Common Core Standards:

To increase sight word knowledge and fluency, students read the 5 sentences on each page three times. The student's reading is rated on a scale from 1 to 5 at the bottom of the page.. First time read the sentences during reading group lesson and teacher rates student's reading. Second and third time student reads the sentences at home for homework and parent rates student's reading. This is great a documentation tool.

Students will trace the sentences and copy on the line below. Then they will write their
own sentence and illustrate it. This may be used as a handwriting lesson, literacy center,
or as homework.

#1: Copy the words cards and cut apart. Students can glue the words on notecards or construction paper to make flashcards. Punch a hole in the top corner and add to a shower curtain ring to make a word ring. Students can use the word ring to study the
words and also as a resource when they write in their journals. It's a mini-word wall.

#2: Print 2 copies of the word cards and then copy on card stock. Cut apart and students will play concentration or memory game with the word cards which will strengthen their visual memory and reading skills.

-Parent note giving directions for homework assignment.
-Happy note to give your students when they complete all 5 lessons.
-Teacher Tip sheet

**There is also a Buggy for Reading:  Preprimer level and First level.
