If your district uses Reading Street (First Grade), you're probably familiar with Life in the Forest (Unit 2). This mini book reinforces the 2 skills on which you'll focus for the week (long vowel u, inflected ending -ed, plus the 6 high frequency words).
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:
High Frequency Words: find, food, water, under, around, grow
Long Vowel U: use, cute, June, rule, huge, flute, Luke, etc...
-ED ending: looked, rushed, smelled, called, camped, walked, asked, etc...
Add 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 a new vowel pattern..
4 pages + 3 (title, credits, instructions) = 7
