This product is a spiral review of reading skills including phonics, sight words, spelling, grammar, handwriting, and reading comprehension aligned to Journeys scope and sequence.
There are 5 pages for each Journeys story, designed for daily review. There are also 5 pages of review for the entire unit at the end.
I use this product with my 1st graders for morning work each day. Most pages take about 5-10 minutes to complete.
Some activities include: completing sentences, filling in missing letters in words, rainbow writing sight words and spelling words, unscrambling sight words, selecting rhyming pictures, drawing pictures for given sentences, and a decodable reading passage with corresponding comprehension questions.
The pages for each week follow a pattern using the target skills:
Day 1- phonics (beginning sounds, missing vowels, etc.), grammar skill from previous story, and completing a sentence.
Day 2- selecting blends for pictures, sight word tracing and writing, writing a sentence using beginning capitalization and ending punctuation.
Day 3- fill-in-the-blank phonics, rainbow write sight words, writing a sentence for a given sight word.
Day 4- rainbow write spelling words, unscramble sight words, draw a picture for a given sentence.
Day 5- reading comprehension of a decodable reading passage using targeted words from the week.
