I made this unit to help out some of my struggling readers in my first grade classroom. I have used it for tutoring, but would be great in homework packets, as morning work or as stations with small groups.
This pack will last for 20 weeks. It focus' around the 100 most frequently used words (a list of the words used is included in the pack). Each week, your students will focus on 5 new words. They will complete various pages to assist them in learning the weekly words. As the end of weeks 2-20 there is an assessment for the teacher to use to check the retention of the words from that week and the week(s) before.
Each week consists of writing the words, coloring the words, reading them mixed up to a teacher, reading them within context, cutting and gluing the letters to make up the words, and stamping the words with alphabet letters (or writing them with something different like a Crayola pen). The sixth page (on weeks 2-20) is an assessment page for the kids to read the words to a teacher or parent and has sentences that utilize the words.
