WITH THESE PACKS, NO LONGER IS TEACHING WITH YOUR BASAL BORING! Teachers, please keep in mind this is an all inclusive resource and will make your job of teaching fun and highly effective. Using these TEACHER PACKS will tremendously improve not only your students learning, it will also help you to refine your teaching skills. No longer will you feel like you have to reinvent the wheel each week. Also, you can be confident these packs are not simply materials that you hang on the wall...These packs provide you with consistent week-to-week activities, guided mini-lessons, station activities, R.T.I. resources and more that take the guess-work out of planning and teaching. You will not be wasting time nor will your students. These materials will be your go-to-resource for times that you need to be observed whether it is by a college student or your administrator. These resources go the extra mile because they are predictable, but fun for students. Kids like these resources because they know what to expect, yet they never tire of the activities. I am always amazed that my students are as thrilled to use the last pack as they are the first! Again, I strongly urge you to try these TEACHER PACKS! You won't look back=) Pinky Promise! Ms. Lend-a-Hand

This iinteractive activity increases phonemic awareness and phonics knowledge. Duplicate one sheet per child. (The sheet that has a set of four cards need only be duplicated to meet the needs of your class. Cut these apart into strips and give each child one strip of letters.)

*These activities are also useful for students who are working in a slower-paced reading group in second grade. Also, these interactive lessons are excellent for Home-Schoolers:)

{Please teach the lesson in the order that best suits you.}
