Provide your new first graders with the opportunity to build confidence and get back into the swing of school as they practice and review kindergarten ELA skills while building bridges to first grade ELA skills. This packet includes review/practice with the following skill areas:
~ Capital and lowercase letters
~ Consonants and vowels
~ Beginning and ending consonants, blends, and digraphs
~ Rhyming words
~ Short and long vowels
~ Sight words
~ Writing stories/information
This packet includes 14 ready-to-use pages that you can use in whatever way meets your needs--as homework, as morning work, as in-class practice, or any combination of these during the first week of first grade.
This packet also includes an answer key and a list of kindergarten and first grade common core skills addressed in this packet.
This packet is designed for the beginning of the first grade school year but would also be appropriate for students at the end of kindergarten or for older students who need a review of basic skills.

[Please note: I have noticed that the margins of the printable pages sometimes look different when printed on different printers, as with many documents. Hopefully, when you print, the margins and borders will be perfectly centered, as they are designed to be! If not, you may want to try printing from a different printer or adjust printer settings if you are able to do that. If that does not work, please send me a comment or question with your e-mail address, and I will contact you by e-mail so we can find a solution that works for you!]
