A is for Alien:
In this packet you will find 3 different sets of write the room cards, all things that begin with the letter a. You can find and use the one that best fits your needs. You may still find uses for the other sets, for word walls, vocabulary words, pocket chart activities. You will also find a “word bank” with the words. If you put those in page protectors and inside a folder (the version with the brads for holding hole punched pages), you have an “on the go” mini word wall for independent writing or another center!
It is completely common core aligned and covers these standards:
SL.K.1 I can participate conversations with my friends.
SL.K.4 I can describe things and events.
SL.K.5 I can add drawings to add details.
SL.K6 I can be understood when I speak in class.
LK.1 I can print my letters.
W.K1 I can write my opinion about something.
W.K2 I can write about something I know.
R.FK.4 I can read an emergent reader with purpose and understanding.
RF.K.1 I can recognize and name all of my upper and lower case letters.
RF.K3b I can say the long and short vowel sounds for the five major vowels.
RF.K3a I can say the sound of each of the letters of the alphabet.
You will find several different pocket chart activities that can also be used as center activities. (One is a really fun “alien scavenger hunt”!) You will find Quiz, Quiz, Trade cards (and directions for doing this game), I have Who has, Graphic Organizers, writing paper with and without prompts. You will also find 3 different types of Write the Room answer sheets, worksheets for identifying objects with the beginning sound of /a/, and writing A practice sheets. There is a song sheet with the “sign language” A with a fun song. There is also an emergent reader for words that begin with A. Out of this World fun for your letter studies!
A Like in Anteater:
Do your kids love looking at real photos of things? For mine, it is an immediate attention grabber! I designed letter units that use real pictures. I have even included a series of “fact pages” that can be used to do “research” or as an introduction to close reading for the younger kiddos in mind!
In this packet you will find:
-2 different types of “write the room”
-with pictures of things that begin with letter A
-fact sentence scrambles
-fact pages about ants, antelope, anteaters, alligators, apples, and avocados
-For each fact page there are 6 associated worksheets: a circle map, a writing prompt, 2 types of fact “recording sheets” and 2 differentiated “draw and label” sheets
-“My Letter A” book that can also be used as wall cards for the letter A
-an “A Words” circle map
-“On the Go” word wall to use at a writing center
-A word vocabulary/word wall/pocket chart cards
