I print these single-sided. We work through the book as a class. First we review the target sound. Second we brainstorm words with the target sound. Students choose 5 words to write into their booklets and illustrate if applicable (vowels). Later in the year students choose 5 brainstormed words and the remainder they must find in a personal dictionary or by reading the room. However, they must be able to read every word they choose! On the blank facing page we glue a craft we have made that contains the target sound (i.e. /ch/ chat). The target sounds are in the order that I teach them. Could also be laminated and used as a literacy center with a dry-erase pen.
Booklet #1 is used in Term 1 and contains the sounds: a, e, i, o, u, y, é, in, on ch, ou, eu, qu, an/en, oi
