⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ This resource is very engaging and helped my students learning in the best way possible. I can't wait to use this resource again with my new students next school year! (Kindergarten, 1st) - Ashley A.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ We used this as a beginning-of-the-year review of all the sound-spellings we learned in kindergarten. Because it was a patterned activity, kids knew what to do and could work on it independently without much parent supervision. (1st) - Siobhan B.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Great practice pages. I like how it covers more than just printing formation. (1st, 2nd grades) - Melany C.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ This is an excellent resource and my students love it! Great product!
