Differentiated bundled phonics practice for long a, e, i, o, and u that makes it fun. This unit includes tons of Common Core Reading Foundational Skills that incorporate fluency, phonics, spelling, comprehension, and games to keep students motivated. The stories each feature "Phonics Friends" characters. My students love these characters and often go back to reread the stories in their book boxes. The unit is differentiated to meet the needs of many learners. I use this unit for Daily 5, homework, small group and whole group work. I use the stories and sorts to initially teach the concept of long vowel spellings, and then I use the games and other work to continually review during word work time. Included are two versions of each vowel unit for differentiation. The first is at a slightly higher level and version two has scaffolds. There is enough here to spiral long vowel instruction so that kids can review if needed. I also added a math/reading connection with the Graph it! activities. In my first grade class this unit has helped with teaching long vowels and fluency reading. This would also be an excellent way to review long vowels at the beginning of second grade or in a combination class. There is enough here for several weeks of instruction. The unit contains:
6 differentiated fluency stories for each long vowel
Comprehension questions that go with each story.
Fill in sentences
Trace, Read, Write
4 differentiated mini-books for each long vowel
Find Your Partner (2 versions for each vowel-one focusing on spelling, the other on meaning of words)
Roll and Read game boards (4 versions for each vowel)
Write the room
Graph it! (math/reading connection activity -4 different versions for each vowel -2 scaffolded)
