The Teacher's Creatures Chunk Neighborhood is a collection of 8 word family houses (and one puddle!) for the digraphs SH, TH, and CH, the R-controlled vowels AR and ER-IR-UR, and the vowel chunks OW-OU, OY-OI, and OO, and the silent letters B, G, H, K, and W. Each house features a picture of the Teacher's Creatures Chunk Puppet that teaches the corresponding chunk sound. Students and/or teachers generate words that contain the appropriate letter chunk for each house. Teachers can print and laminate a class set to display on the wall. Lamination creates a dry erase surface that can be reused year after year. Teachers can also print additional copies for students to fill in and take home. The neighborhood includes a cover for student books. A street sign is included for the neighborhood if you choose to display the houses on your wall. There are two different line-size options for the houses to fit students' needs. Smaller houses measure 8 in. x 5.5 in. Larger houses measure 8 in x 7.5 in.
The stories and motions for Teacher's Creatures Chunk Puppets are ONLY available with my product "Teacher's Creatures Chunk Puppets (Teacher Set with Stories and Motions)", which I recommend purchasing as well, so that students will be familiar with the creatures featured on the houses.
