Product Description
Supplementary resources to supplement Scott Foresman's Reading Street® (2008/2011 version) for I'M A CATERPILLAR. The Teacher Pack include 246 combined pages of Reading Foundational Skills for the Common Core and More for station use, independent activities, and whole group mini lessons.

This week-long unit likely contains more materials than you will need for a week. Much of the materials in this resource are repetitive in nature and the consistency of many activities will show up in following units which makes teacher explanation time minimal. It is for this same reason that your little first graders will love this particular product week in and week out. They understand the layout and it builds their confidence. Also, as an educator, it gives you ready-made GO-TO-LESSONS that make teaching interactive! Be sure to use this resource via your interactive white board for best results:)
GUIDED MINI-LESSONS include but are not limited to:
*ABC Order & Sentences (with Student Rubric)
*Onset & Rime Activities (5th as an Assessment)
THESE 2 activities are taught as a guided lesson daily.
*The third activity I teach with is Build-a-Word and is included in this week-long unit and IS NO LONGER SOLD SEPARATELY.

I have been creating my own student work for years and it is so fantastic to be able to share with other teachers. I work diligently to post high quality products. If you catch a mistake, please do not hesitate to contact me @

(A forewarning: I use a multitude of fonts in my work. If you prefer simpler ones, this may not be the right printable for your needs. Also, this is predominately and intentionally a black-line resource. If you prefer a color-rich printable, again, this is likely not the right fit for you. Thanks for peeking anyway!
