Do you ever want to quickly evaluate your young students to see what they know with letter sounds and simple words? Would you like a quick tool for aide or parent to use with your students to see what they know in early reading skills? This resource includes 12 lists of vowels, consonants, short and long vowel words, words with consonant and vowel blends and simple sentences. Each of the six pages can be cut in half and laminated for continued use. I've been working in a 1st grade class with some low readers and am evaluating individual children. I created these lists to make my job easier. I start with the sounds of the letters and move on to words until I find the level at which a student is challenged. I think that other teachers might find these lists valuable also.
