These activities are made to be used as supplements to the phonics portion of the Kindergarten Benchmark© curriculum. There are a total of 69 pages that align directly with your daily phonics lessons for the 1st 20 days and unit 1.
*Please note these activities hit state standard foundational skill targets so they can be used when introducing letters with any curriculum.
These activities allow for deeper and leveled work during whole group, small group, and literacy centers. The activities specifically hit the skill sets taught in the phonics curriculum in the scope and sequence presented.
I use these activities everyday for whole group, small group and literacy centers based on the needs of my students.
*For literacy centers, I put the worksheets in plastic sheets and have students use dry erase markers to write with.
