Cherry Carl, an experienced Language Arts Specialist and former university instructor, has developed support materials for different reading series. Many of these are used all over the country and with great success! This 7 page packet is the first of many that go with Mc-Graw Hill's Wonders Series for first grade. Activities in each packet include word configuration, cloze, sentence writing, word search, rhyme time (onset and rime), alphabetical order, and more. Experience has shown that young children soon learn the pattern of the materials and feel successful. Second language learners and students with special needs also find success with these activities! Make believers out of your little readers!
