This is a comprehensive and FUN 161 unit that has pieces for small group instruction, whole group instruction and independent literacy centers. There is also a component that can be copied and sent home for parents to help their children with initial sound fluency! The activity boards can be used on a powerpoint or smartboard. You can print them and laminate them for small group instruction (also includes b&w to send home). You can also cut them up and have the children play memory with them. Each activity builds the student's confidence and reinforces consistency with the words and pictures. Activities included are: LIteracy Center Gumball Game, Secret Code, Spelling Activities, Matching, Practice Writing, Cut and Paste, Sentences, Initial Sound Fluency Boards (can also be cut apart and used for picture cards) Elkonin Boxes. So much to choose from. I am so excited about this unit. Your children will love it and it will build a foundation and help them feel successful!
