If your district uses the Reading Street series(First Grade), you're probably familiar with the story I'm a Caterpillar (3.5). This mini book reinforces the 3 skills on which you'll focus for the week:
* 5 high frequency words: done, know, visit, push, and wait
* contractions: 've, 's, and 're
* ir, er, and ur vowel pattern: butter, player, dinner, burger, purple, purr, nurse, turtle, burn, bird, shirt, girl, her, thirty, turn, first, stir, etc...
This product consists of a mini-book of 6 to 18 pages.
(You'll determine the number of pages you'd like to include in each book.)
Each page in the book has a sentence with one or more of the targeted words.
Print, trim, and attach a 1 inch ring and these mini booklets are ready to grab and go!
Prepare them once and use them year after year. You'll find they're useful in small groups, literacy centers, or flash each page on your board for a quick whole group review.
My own kiddos practice these at the beginning of their daily small group. It's a fast and efficient way to practice new vowel patterns.
4 pages + 3 (title, credits, instructions) = 7
