Do parents thank you for sending home meaningful homework?!!
I created "Fuss Free Phonics Homework" because I have been using this type of homework in my classroom for 8 years, and teachers, families, and kids love it!
Each page clearly communicates our new learning goals in a box at the top and gives families an effective way to practice without taking too much time or causing frustration! The directions do not change so children can become more confident and independent, which families love!
There are two pages included per phonics skill. There are opportunities to practice reading, tracing, writing, and brainstorming words. There is also an fun optional word building activity that fits the needs of those families who are always looking for an extra way to practice! The second page shows a short phonics passage with comprehension questions that gives children the opportunity to read familiar and new words, think about the text, and respond. There are some fiction and nonfiction passages included.
I also included a parent letter about phonics homework and tips for helping little ones grow as readers and writers. There are two editable versions included so you can make the letter fit your needs.
You will also receive a FREE editable homework template to customize your own list of words or your own reading passage with questions. Here are the blends included:
l blends (bl, cl, fl, gl, pl, sl)
s blends (sc, sk, sl, sm, sn, sp, sw)
r blends (br, cr, dr, fr, gr, pr, tr)
n blends (nd, ng, nk, nt)
**Editable pages open in PowerPoint
