Check out this collection of activities aligned with the MacMillan/McGraw Hill Treasures Reading program!
This packet is aligned with the instructional goals for the first grade Treasures reading program, Unit 2, Week 4. It covers short vowel sounds (focusing on short u), retelling, and the week's sight words. Included in this 7-page packet are a word sort, a graphing activity, and building words activity, a retelling sheet, and a short vowel game.
Page 3-4: Read the short u words and sort by ending sound
Page 5: Read and graph the week's six sight words
Page 6: Cut out the letters cards and use them to build short u words. Record the words at the top of the page.
Page 7-8: Using a paper clip with the spinners on page 8, students spin and land on a vowel. Find a word with that vowel on the game board on page 7, read it, and cover with a marker. The first player to cover 4 in a row wins!
Page 9: Use the retelling chart to retell any of the week's stories. Students will draw or write about the characters, setting, three important events, and the conclusion.
