Student Reference Packet is very versatile. Included in this packet are: Pictionary, sight word list, CVC words, 100’s chart and a Math-at-a-Glance Reference page (Math Central).
Students will come to depend on this packet during independent work, whether it’s writing or math.
I originally gave each student their own personal Pictionary in a three brad, two pocket plastic folder. Students used this folder during independent writing. This year my students surprised me when they asked if they could have their sight words included in their folders. It evolved from there. Their folder soon became an essential component of their daily routine. They pulled out their folders for Morning Work, Math and Literacy Centers, and Independent Work. They also kept extra credit work in their folders, in the event that they finished their assigned task on time.
I know your students, like mine will find this Reference packet an important part of their daily routine.
