CKLA Skills resources all in ONE place! Are you looking for a phonics resource to support your first grade students? This bundle is FULL of engaging literacy activities that follow the CKLA (Core Knowledge Language Arts) SKILLS Grade One curriculum.

These activities to reinforce the phonics and phonemic awareness skills students learn in CKLA. Many of these activities and printables are also appropriate for remediation and intervention (first grade), independent work, or on-level later kindergarten enrichment.

These activities would be perfect for small groups and literacy centers during both a CKLA Skills content block and Guided Reading (Daily Five: Word Work centers).

Don't teach using the CKLA Skills Strand? These activities follow a first grade phonics scope and sequence, but can be used to support ANY K-2 phonics curriculum.

All materials use ink-saving black and white graphics and are designed to be “mix and match.” This makes differentiation easy for ALL your learners!
