I find that if my kiddos can compare
the hard & soft Gg
sounds side-by-side, with a variety of different activities, their reading
of those words is much more successful.
A few little rules
, lots of examples
and fun ways to practice
, will help reinforce the different Gg sounds.
So I designed this packet. I started out with just the gorilla & giraffe flip booklets, but as I was designing, I also wanted to include other quick, easy, and fun activities, where students could practice in other ways.
The variety keeps things fresh, while allowing for continued practice without reinforcement becoming boring.
Thus, the packet grew into jumbo size. I thought of selling the hard and soft Gg activities separately, but that defeated the purpose of being able to do a side-by-side comparison, so I decided to BUNDLE things at a single price.
It’s thrilling to make extra income selling items, but my heart is in getting this to students.
I LOVE helping to turn on those light bulbs and putting a big smile on a child’s face, while making a teacher’s life a bit easier.
Simply put, I know this “stuff” works because it’s worked for me.
My students are focused and having fun learning some tricky things. I can use these centers year after year, which is a huge time saver. Win-Win.
If a great sale price gets this product in your classroom—woo hoo! Honestly my main goal.
