GREAT supplement for EL Education's Skills Block for first grade.
Are you using EL Education’s Skills block? If so, you know that the 15-20 page lessons can seem daunting and overwhelming when trying to implement them!
These PDF’s are great for your whole group lesson! There are teacher directions on the bottom of each page and graphics to hold interest.
Some lessons are only a few pages while others run 48 pages long.
Another great way to use these is to run a program like screencastify or screencast-o-matic to make a video of the lesson. This will allow for more personalized learning and incorporate a bit of blended learning into your classroom! (sample videos on request)
There are word cards included for the decodable words and high frequency words, simply print and cut apart.
Every day ends with closing with a post it and “mystery words” so you can quickly assess and check in on student’s learning.
Also included are assessment sheets. Instead of flipping through 10 different pages for your assessments it’s all on one page. Makes it easy to collect data and track it for each student.
Lastly there are student assessment pages. You can use the ‘assessment portion’ pdf to give the spelling test. Or, if you need the time to conduct one-on-one tests, make a video and allow students to complete it on their own. Students have a customized list and on the back there is room for the two sentences with pictures.
