Does the Spalding handwriting packet have the correct "y" that is curved?

Thanks.

No, I am sorry, there is not a Spalding handwriting font that I have found to install on my computer, and our district does not follow their handwriting program because it is not what is considered standard "printing". Our district went with zaner bloser because it is more traditional and what is expected when people fill out paperwork. You could easily white out the "y" and put in your own though.

Hello,
I love the idea of this poem and am trying to print it, but it looks as if there something wrong with the formating? Or, is it me?? There are rectangles in place of all the letter Os as well as other odd things. Any ideas?
Thanks!

Usually when that happens it means you need to update your Adobe reader. If that doesn't work let me know.

Each year I have a few students who struggle to move beyond "choppy" or "bumpy" blending into smoothly blending the words and hearing the resulting word. They often sound out the word and then say something different. For example, they might say, /b/ /l/ /a/ /s/ /t/ and then say "black", because they are not truly blending sounds and by the time they are done sounding out, they've forgotten what they said. This is my attempt at making what I want them to do visual, as well as auditory and kinesthetic. The stop signs signify the separation of sounds, the chain links represent "hooking" the sounds together, without stopping. I use the larger pieces whole group and the smaller ones in small groups.
There is a lot of research that speaks to this problem in some children and how it affects them in becoming successful decoders. I find when I make things auditory, visual and kinesthetic it helps.

Buyer re: Spalding Sound Charts and Reading Strategies
Hi: This is great, I already bought it. FYI. It would be helpful if you included the product overview you have on the tpt store in the product. It is good info and puts the product into prospective. Also there is nothing in the product, except the copyright, that tells me who I bought this from- your tpt seller name, in case someone wants to check out more of your items. Some sellers include an email address.

Thank you.

I purchased the Spalding Sounds Chart already and I love it, but the copyright on the bottom of each page covers parts of the text. Can that be corrected and updated for a new download? Thanks for the consideration!

Hi! I am a Kindergarten teacher here in Texas. I have a question for you. Does your school use CSCOPE for curriculum? If so, how long? Our district just rolled it out for us to begin using it. I love it, but many of my colleagues are overwhelmed and do not like it at all. Did anyone on your faculty have the same problems? Can you tell me how your school overcame the issues? Of course these questions are assuming you do use it. I really appreciate any help you can give me.

Our district does not use CSCOPE, so I have no personal experience with it. I have hear mixed reviews about it.
I'm lucky to be in a district that allows us to create our curriculum and try out new ideas, strategies, and share them with each other.
Sorry I can't help you with this. My aunt taught in Longview and used it, but she was not a fan, she felt it was too confining.

Buyer re: Handwriting Practice to supplement Spalding Phonograms
Hi!
I love the Alphabet Book! Thank you. I have a few more questions related to Spalding, I hope you don't mind...
1. Do you use the Spalding lined paper in Kindergarten, and, If not, what are your thoughts??? ( my partner and I want to keep the midline!)
2. How do you do the WPR (written phonogram review) and on what paper or worksheet type?
3. Any more worksheets like the "Bossy R"? This is wonderful for Kindergarten. I'm looking for more "fun" ways to apply the phonograms.

Thanks so much!! Sorry for all the questions!!

Sincerely,
Lynn Chronis,
Pinewood School, Los Altos, CA

No, I do not use the Spalding paper, I like the midline as well. :)
I use our handwriting paper with the midline for the phonogram review as well.
I will work on more fun reviews and let you know when I upload them if you follow me. I also use the kinesthetic phonograms along with spalding from heidi songs...you should look them up, it gives a movement to go along with the sound! I love it! Don't worry about questions, this is why we are teachers...to share!

Thanks,
Diane

Hello...

I purchased your Spalding phonogram charts and absolutely love them!
I teach Kindergarten and we have just started with "parts" of the Spalding program last year. I would love to know if you have any other Spalding - based materials. I'm looking for more phonogram practice worksheets and handwriting practice materials. Thank you!
