Differentiated phonics practice for long o 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 story features one of the "Phonics Friends", Hope and her toad Joe. 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 o spellings and then I use the games and other work to continually review during word work time. There are two versions of this unit. The first is at a slightly higher level and version two has scaffolds. There is enough here to spiral long o instruction so that kids can review if needed. I also added a math/reading connection with the Graph it! activity. 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 that feature long o spellings
Comprehension questions that go with each story.
Differentiated sorts
Fill in sentences
Trace, Read, Write
4 differentiated mini-books
Word cards
Find Your Partner (2 versions-one focusing on spelling, the other on meaning of words)
Puzzle pieces
Roll and Read game boards (4 versions)
Write the room
Graph it! (math/reading connection activity -4 different versions -2 scaffolded)
