Hi! I love your support packs for Fundations! I just purchased units 10-13. I am wondering why the lines are different on unit 11? There are no dotted lines in the center of the baselines on the worksheets as a guide like in the other units I purchased. Is this a mistake or something you can fix for me so the lines are like units 10, 12, and 13?

Hi Jillian,

I love you Fundations support packets for level 1! I am a second grade teacher and will be using Fundations level 2 next year. Will you be making the same support packets with level 2 words in the near future? If not, is there any way I can buy your template so that I can create them?

I'm finishing up the support packs for level 1 (I'm almost done with unit 12) and then will begin working on level 2! So hopefully I will have several units done before the start of the school year!

Should the word search on the first page say, "blend wordsearch" Color the words with a blend?

It currently says closed syllable and all of the words are a closed syllable which is also a Unit 9 skill.

As of right now no. I'm going to stick to posting individual units as I finish them because I keep thinking of new ideas and making changes as I go! I'm thinking of possibly bundling the whole year when I'm finished!

I love your new additions to level 10 packs! Before I start buying each level individually (I'm adding it all up!), will you be bundling any of the levels after level 5? I have bought were I am right now, but just wanted to check! Thanks again. Finding actual activities that go along with Fundations is hard! An extra ideas would be great to hear about!

Hi Jillian!

I LOVE your support packs! I also am starting to teach a second grade group and would like to use the same sheet for the Fundations level 2 (second edition) is there any way I can buy the template from you? Or do you have level 2 support packs for the second edition? Thanks!

Hi,
In the fundations support packs, how are the students spinning and how come there are not enough lines for each word?
December 2, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
n/a
Jillian Coster  (TpT Seller)
Hi! The students use paperclips to spin! And they hold the spinner with the point of their pencil! To keep the activity moving I just have them spin 6 times and write whichever word they get. Its not meant for them to write every word. With the probability of just spinning every word unlikely, I would have to have a page full of lines!!

Hope this helps!

So weird because I have the second edition of the Fundation manual here in front of me and Unit 2's planned unit time is two weeks, when fundations has been taught in K. So that is why I made pages to support two weeks of instruction and then an addtional week of support pages! So really for unit 2 there are three weeks of materials! Hope this helps!

Hi jillian! I just ordered a bunch of your stuff to use with my first grade students right in Sayville! I have not used Fundations before and have taken the book home to look at this summer. We have the first edition, not the fancy newer one that is easier to navigate. I don't know anything about the program and have looked for blogs, tpt materials, etc. to get me started. I can't seem to find much. Do you know any helpful sights I could look at, or materials I can buy, or anything to help me make Fundations successful in my room? I would appreciate any help that you can offer. Thanks Jillian! Enjoy your summer. If you want to text me, my cell is 631 553-7816. Karen

I have a few other things that can definitely help you! I teach in shoreham wading river. When I get some free time over the next few days I'll text you and maybe we can set up a time to chart! I ran into the same problem when I first started the program so I ended up creating lots! I also have homework I use for almost every unit if you are interested! It's a weekly dictation practice!
