PRE-PRIMER LEVEL - aligned with Kindergarten - 2nd grade Common Core Standards
READING: 5 pages
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 fluency. Second and third time student reads the sentences at home for homework and parent rates student's fluency. This is great a documentation tool.
WRITING: 5 pages
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.
WORD CARDS: 40 words
#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.
