Weekly Reference Folder

This is a simple reference folder for students to use throughout the year. This should be assembled by the instructor prior to starting the program and introduced to the student on the first day. Two manila file folders are glued back to back to create a three-panel folder. This folder will contain many helpful charts and concepts for students to reference as needed for their writing and grammar exercises throughout the course.



Daily Writing Notebook

An inexpensive composition or spiral notebook is needed to make the Daily Writing Notebook. Cut out and glue the pocket to the inside cover and place story strips inside. Each morning at the start of the day students choose a strip of paper that contains a story starter or a question to answer in their notebook. This is intended to be a relaxed warm-up activity to get the creativity flowing. However, it is suggested that you encourage students to answer with complete sentences to expand their response with reasons to support their answers.

WEEKLY OUTLINE
(Everything prints in the order you need it)

Monday
Weekly Charts & Posters
At the start of each week, you’ll find new colorful charts you can use for teaching the weekly lessons. The first chart introduces the new vowel team and word list for the week. Any following charts are intended to be used as references for the writing portion of the program. Display charts near student workstations for easy teaching opportunities.


Touch, Read & Color
This is a simple worksheet for students to begin to practice reading their new vowel team. Students place their finger on the dots and follow the path as they read. Students then spell the word by coloring in the correct letterboxes for each word.


Writing
This curriculum includes daily writing instruction over the course of the entire 36-week program. Students starting with little to no writing experience will build the necessary skills to write strong sentences, complete paragraphs, and even poetry. Use the daily reference folder and weekly charts to teach and review concepts as needed.


Write & Find:
Students build strong reading and spelling skills while searching for their words in the puzzle. Words are presented horizontally, backward, vertically, and diagonally.


Flashcards:
Flashcards provide a quick tool for reading vowel team words and weekly sight words. Use these cards for weekly review, sorting games and writing sentences. Print in black and white once students have mastered the middle vowel sounds.



Tuesday
Spell & Write
Students practice key handwriting skills while spelling out their weekly words. A simple sentence writing prompt encourages students to use their new words to make a sentence. Students color one star for each row of text they complete. Encourage students to develop longer sentences to reach their star goal.


Sound it Out
Students develop phonological awareness by segmenting words into individual sounds. Students then rebuild their word from the sounds and write it on the line next to the picture.


Writing
This curriculum includes daily writing instruction over the course of the entire 36-week program. Students starting with little to no writing experience will build the necessary skills to write strong sentences, complete paragraphs, and even poetry. Use the daily reference folder and weekly charts to teach and review concepts as needed.


Roll, Read, & Color
This fast-paced dice game encourages students to put their new reading skills to the test. Students take turns rolling the die and finding the matching column. Students must read and color the next available word in the corresponding row, working their way from the bottom up. The student to color and read the final word in any column wins. This game can be played as single player as well, students are eager to see which animal will win the race!


Find & Color Sight Words
Students practice reading their weekly sight words with this fun coloring activity. This is a great opportunity to use bingo daubers, counters or other hands-on-manipulatives. Students choose one color for each sight word in the center square then search and color their words circles. Optional: Call out a few of the other sight words for students to find and dab. This is a great way to review previous words.



Wednesday
Reading Strategies & Grammar Power
This first half of this sheet provides students with ample opportunity to practice reading their new vowel team words, sight words, and vocabulary words. The second half of the sheet progressively covers key grammar and language arts skills.


Reading Comprehension
Each week, students are provided a short non-fiction paragraph that can be used to build and develop comprehension skills. These passages cover science, history, social studies, and character development. As such, there are many new words presented in each passage and students are not expected to be able to read these on their own. In fact, you might find it helpful to read the passage to the student, or to read together. The goal of this activity is to develop the necessary skills needed for comprehension and understanding of non-fiction text.


Writing
This curriculum includes daily writing instruction over the course of the entire 36-week program. Students starting with little to no writing experience will build the necessary skills to write strong sentences, complete paragraphs, and even poetry. Use the daily reference folder and weekly charts to teach and review concepts as needed.


Build a Word
Students write or stamp the missing letters onto the squares. Encourage students to practice the sound aloud as they write. Next, students cut and paste the squares in the word blanks above to complete the word.


Sight Word Play Dough Mats
Two play-dough mats are included each week. These provide students with hands-on learning opportunities to practice reading, spelling, and writing their weekly sight words. TIP: Store in page protectors for reuse.





Thursday
Early Reader
Students put their new reading skills to the test by reading the weekly early reader. Assembly is a snap with our story strip format. Store these readers in a small container or empty tissue box for students to continue to practice reading.


Vocab’ Dab
Each week students will have new vocabulary words to write. These words were previously presented in the phrases and non-fiction reading passages earlier in the week. Most words will be familiar or easily decoded from contextual clues in the comprehension passages. This worksheet encourages students to “dab” and use each word correctly in a sentence. Next, students must correctly match the word and definition by “dabbing” them the same color.


Writing
This curriculum includes daily writing instruction over the course of the entire 36-week program. Students starting with little to no writing experience will build the necessary skills to write strong sentences, complete paragraphs, and even poetry. Use the daily reference folder and weekly charts to teach and review concepts as needed.


Spin & BUMP!
This competitive game is a blast to play with 2 or more players. Use a pencil and paperclip to make a spinner. You’ll need a handful of different colored counters or coins or each student. Students take turns spinning and placing their counter on any corresponding word in the grid below. Other players can BUMP you off if they spin a word that you are already on. The goal of the game is to be the first player to get five in a row. This game can also be played with bingo daubers and no bumping.


Sight Word Activity Page
Students finish up the week with this sight word activity sheet. This sheet covers the two new sight words with a variety of quick exercises. First, in the top left corner, students trace to spell their word. Second, students must find their word from the choices below. Third, students practice writing their word a few times on the blank lines. In the top right corner, students color to spell their word multiple times. Just below, students will carefully look for their words in the word search (multiple times). Finally, students use a Q-tip™ and paint to dip and dab their word.



Literacy Review Weeks
Every five weeks is scheduled as a review week. Students will play games that cover sight words from the previous four weeks. This is also a great opportunity to replay any of the vowel team games as needed for individual students.

In addition to review, new blends, digraphs or trigraph clusters will be introduced. Students are not expected to be able to spell or read words with these blends. Instead, the focus is on understanding the individual beginning or ending sound associated with each word.

Review weeks also include a new Fairy Tale literacy unit. This includes a special 15-page early reader for students to read throughout the week. There are two daily literacy worksheets or activities to correspond with the weekly fable.



Included Titles:
• The Ugly Duckling
• Goldilocks
• The Little Red Hen
• Jack and the Beanstalk
• The Gingerbread Man
• Three Little Pigs
• Little Red Riding Hood

Note: Additional bonus material is located in the appendix. This includes a complete literacy unit for Hansel and Gretel as well as interactive story writing elements for students who are interested in writing their own fables and fairy tales.
