The third grade Wonders CD contains supplemental materials that have been requested by teachers all over the country in order to provide reproducible, skills based activities for independent practice and application. Many of the activities are appropriate for literacy centers and for mastering phonics skills in context. The author of the CD is Cherry Carl, a former language arts specialist and university instructor. All of the materials are research based and are often used for Resource programs to help children with learning difficulties. Each lesson contains a nine page packet that supports the story vocabulary. Poetry and songs are in the process of being added to the CD and will be available at no cost to the buyer. The exceptional clipart used on the CD is the work of Ron Leishman, another contributor to TPT who collaborated with the author on selecting appropriate illustrations.
