I Can Rhyme Chart

Each week you’ll be introducing children to a new word family or blend. Start off the week with this colorful chart. Talk with children about the different words they can make with this special word family and try to think of other rhyming words together.

Letter Sound Chart

Sound out each letter individually, and then blend them together as you move your finger across the letters and arrows. Encourage children to keep the sound going until they reach the end of the arrow, changing and blending sounds when their finger crosses over new letters.

Handwriting Worksheet

This is a simple worksheet for children to practice writing their new words. Each handwriting page features a place for children to write their name and the written word family at the top. Pictures and their corresponding words are shown, and children have the opportunity to trace and then write the words on their own, checking off each row they complete.

Blank Word Family Template

These blank word family templates are very versatile and can be filled in a variety of ways: Play-dough mats, Stickers, Painting, Dot Markers, Fingerprints, Cut & Paste Collage (a words, m words)…..etc.

Sight Word Cards

Each week children will learn two or three new sight words. Introduce children to these new words and use the sight word cards to begin building small sentences. Children can cut and store cards for later use.


Sound it Out

Children build on the previous day's activities by starting off the day reviewing each letter sound and blending them into words. Children match each word to the corresponding picture. The second part of this worksheet provides children the opportunity to deconstruct words into beginning, middle and ending sounds, circling each letter as they go. Encourage children to say these sounds out loud as they work.

Interactive Notebook Activity: Week 1 Nouns

On Tuesdays and Thursdays children begin to build and add to their interactive folder. Children cut out and assemble the mini-booklet and add it to their folder. Each mini-booklet contains new information covering key Language Arts standards for Kindergarten.

Write & Find

This is a simple spelling activity for children to work on listening for individual letter sounds. After writing each word, children find the words in the word-search below.

Spinner Winner

This worksheet doubles as handwriting practice and a fun game! Using a paperclip spinner, children write each word they land on, first one to the top wins!

Daily Sight Word Work

Review sight words with yesterday’s word cards. Children then practice writing their sight words with these simple activity pages. Each page features dot painting and a dot to dot for children to solve. Smaller words leave room for writing practice and extra activities.


Read & Respond

Children work on key reading and comprehension skills with this simple worksheet. Instruct children to put their finger on the dot and read each word. After reading children respond by answering questions or completing a writing activity. This worksheet is progressive throughout the curriculum so reading selections and responses will be increasingly harder as the child strengthens their reading skills.

Making Words w/Letter Tiles

Children build words by cutting out the letter tiles and pasting them to the correct word mat. If you have them, these cards will work with plastic letter tiles as well.

Nonsense Words

Children build words by choosing a beginning letter and pairing it with their word family. After saying the sounds out loud, children much decided it they created a real word or a nonsense word, and write it on the corresponding list.

Find & Color Word Family

Children find the words that have the same ending sound and color them. Children then write three of the words they found.

Sight Word Maze

A fun activity for children to catch all of their sight words as they work their way through the maze. Encourage children to read the words aloud as they find them, counting up how many they found.


Story Reader

Children put their reading skills to the test with this end of the week comic book style story reader. The goal is for children to read this story three times on their own. If your child is struggling with this reader, take breaks and review or even try to finish is over the weekend.

Guided Writing

Each week children will complete a simple story writing prompt. Children are encouraged to use newly acquired words as well as practice language and grammar skills. Each writing prompt provides children with the necessary framework to complete the activity with little help from a teacher. Upon completion children are encouraged to cut out their writing and word box and paste them into their interactive notebook. Writing samples can be read during review week and vocabulary can be used as a reference for future assignments.

Interactive Notebook

On Thursday children continue to build and add to their interactive notebook. Children cut out and assemble the mini-book and paste it into the next available page. Each mini-book contains new information covering key Language Arts standards for Kindergarten.

Daily Sight Word Work

Review sight words with yesterday’s word cards. Children then practice writing their sight words with these simple activity pages.

End of the Week Crown
