Provides extra practice to go along with Journeys Unit 1; Lesson 5, "Gus Takes the Train" Activities provide independent practice in reading, sight word recognition, grammar, phonics, and writing.
Future supplemental workbooks will follow the same format as much as possible so the children can look at a page and easily know what to do on that page with minimal instruction from you.
In this download, you get 21 pages that focus on:
*identifying high frequency words
*identifying short u
*word building with word families -us -ug and -un
*comprehension, understanding fictional story structure
*phonics - short u, beginning qu and z
*grammar - identifying adjectives and introducing pronouns
*activities that can be used in small group or centers
Although this was designed to accompany the Journeys reading series, you can see that the skills are applicable to any first grade curriculum. You do not have to read the story to complete the pages.
