Reading on Strawberry Lane


Included in this packet are 168 Open Syllable word cards in this packet.

These words are strategically chosen and they teach 8 various patterns of Open Syllable words.

Two different things can be done with the word cards.

1. The word cards can be cut apart as individual cards and sorted according to directions included. Then they can be used for various word skill activities of your choosing or for playing cards with simple game boards that you may have yourself. If you would like simple games to play with these word cards, then click the following link to download these simple free games:

2. Also the words cards can provide each student with word work notebook. Simple directions for making the notebooks are included. A great feature about these notebooks is that they can be used as data in knowing what to reteach or teach next.

This packet focuses on teaching the word work in Step 5 of teaching reading. Step 5 is teaching reading sound number 21 which is Open Syllable.

If you’re interested in teaching the next vowel sound, reading sound number 22, then purchase my packets that target Final Stable words:

There are a total of 22 vowel sounds to teach in order for readers to be successful. Reading Tools in a Box teaches these 22 vowel sounds in a basic understandable way for both the student to learn and for you as a teacher to present. So if you would like to know how to teach reading in a way that makes perfect sense, then you would love Reading Tools in a Box!

Note: This packet only contains word cards and word work notebook. There are no activities.
