This unit is a fantastic way to enhance your letter studies with your children! What could be more fun than a treasure hunt, trains, AND "Write the Room"?
In this packet you will find 3 different sets of write the room cards, all things that begin with the letter a. You can find and use the one that best fits your needs. You may still find uses for the other sets, for word walls, vocabulary words, pocket chart activities. You will also find a “word bank” with the words. If you put those in page protectors and inside a folder (the version with the brads for holding hole punched pages), you have an “on the go” mini word wall for independent writing or another center!
You will find several different pocket chart activities that can also be used as center activities or as full group games/activities. (One is a TREASURE HUNT game that has your students looking for the gold with the pictures of things with the letter t! Another game is an ABC order train, with a matching the conductor to the letter sound. Another is helping the turtles find their proper tanks by matching the letter to the beginning sound.) You will find Quiz, Quiz, Trade cards (and directions for doing this Kagan Structure/ game), I have Who has, Graphic Organizers, writing paper with and without prompts. You will also find 3 different types of Write the Room answer sheets, worksheets for identifying objects with the beginning sound of /t/, and writing T practice sheets. There is a song sheet with the “sign language” T with a fun song. There is also an emergent reader for words that begin with T.
