This BUNDLE of 15 printable booklets was designed for those struggling readers who did not make the transition into LONG VOWEL SOUNDS. These are often kiddos with working/short-term memory deficits, and for these little guys, phonics can be a nightmare. The scanning passages, target words, and word sorts in this download provide you with countless “teachable moments” that allow you to individualize instruction. Word families, plurals, verb tenses, compound words, multi-syllable words, and more are presented in an inductive manner so that patterns, instead of rules, can be recognized.
Students exercise their working memories by scanning for target words within passages and coloring them in. By using the suggested “interactive” method of reading, each of the passages is read multiple times without becoming boring. The idea is to increase sight-word vocabularies so students can begin to use context clues and recognize patterns. Phonics and critical thinking practice are also included as word-sorts that draw vocabulary from the passages. As an added side-effect, you'll probably see improved HANDWRITING!!
A teacher’s guide is included with each level Examples are included in the PREVIEW.
