This packet contains several activities for small group and individuals in the classroom. The whole packet centers around working with and learning the long A sound. The first activity can be used for memory which I have found effective for struggling learners. The poem provided is very useful in increasing fluency and student confidence. Also included is a fill in the blank activity which requires students to read and write along with a writing activity.I love having students develop their own sentences with words I give them to focus on the chosen skill and develop creativity. The packet merges reading and writing to offer a full literacy experience.
