EXCITING NEWS: Phonics and Word Work HALF Bundles are here! If it is too late in your school year to buy the whole bundle (Units 1-6) or you have been buying one UNIT at a time, the HALF Bundle (Units 4-6) is for you! Each unit is usually $5.00, but this HALF Bundle has THREE units for the price of TWO!
You’ve heard the saying “work smarter” not “harder”. Well, it is time to make your life easier by instantly filling in the Phonics & Word Work gaps for your students! This effective combination of practice for home/school is followed up with a Quick Informal Assessment that shows the level of proficiency for each student every week! Each week’s foundational skills are already programmed for immediate practice and testing. I always make my products for my own SURVIVAL first! I love using this because it guarantees that I will know my student’s growth each week. When these resources work for me, I pass them on to YOU so you can easily grab, print, and GO! I have also included detailed teacher directions that will lead you through the whole process.
Each week you will have the following pages:
**Phonics & Word Work “Practice”
**Weekly Assessment Card (to be laminated or in a sleeve) that a student
holds to read off of to take the 1-2-minute assessment.
**Weekly Assessment Results to fill out as a student is being assessed.
Benefits of this product each week:
**mastery and gaps of skills will be instantly known
**all students (especially sight word readers and good guessers) are tested
**no more “presuming” students learned the week’s skills
**confidence of the teacher that skills are mastered and growth is occurring
**learn how to fill out and color data sheets
**enjoy the reward of a visual (colored data sheet) to show mastery and needs of the class
**who needs reteaching/review will be known after each test day
**specific skills needing reinforcing will be clear
**quickly decide flexible groups, small groups, one-on-one for Monday
**learn the importance of nonsense words (for all K-5 students)
**realize that consistency with systematic practice and testing enhances reading success
This resource is aligned with the Journeys’ (2014 Edition) Curriculum. If you use a different Edition, simply go to the PREVIEW as I have listed the anchor stories with examples of phonics/word work for you to see if your edition is similar to this one. I sure hope so as this is so beneficial! If you are not presently using an adopted series, this would be perfect for you as this contains all of the foundational skills required for this grade level.
Thanks so much for your interest in my Journeys – Phonics & Word Work – Filling in the Gaps product! This made a huge difference in my teaching! Check out my store to see more products that will support your efforts for student success!
Thank you so much,
Terry Kirkeby @ Teaching Amazing Kids
