This product is designed to be used in tandem with the Core Knowledge Curriculum for Skills, 1st Grade. In the curriculum a variety of sounds and spelling are taught. I felt my students needed some visuals and kinesthetic strategies to learn these important sounds and spellings.
In this unit you will find:
Sound and Spell cards for:
A-Z letter sounds
Vowel Pairs: ou, oo, oo, oi, aw, ou
R-controlled Vowels: or, er, ir
Digraphs: ch, sh, th, wh, ng
The cards come in 3 different sizes with the option to use them as a place to post your CKLA spelling cards OR with cards that already have the spellings filled in.
I have also included, for some sounds, alternate cards that include ALL the spellings- even those not covered by CKLA.
You will also find posters/charts that include all sounds, chants and hand motions for each card, and personal word wall resources for students to use as reference.
I recommend a couple other units for use along side this one:
CORE SKILLS COMPANION-TRICKY WORDS
CORE SKILLS COMPANION-UNIT 1
Please see the preview file for more information and/or visit my blog to see how I use these resources.
