This product was created for me to have a visual, for both the students and myself, for each unit’s focus in language arts and math.
Pages 5-7 contain headers for the components of Alphabet Time, as provided by the Wonders series’ Scope and Sequence.
The math posters contain areas of focus, as provided by the Wonders series’ Assessment Overview. Pages 8 and 9 contain 4 math headers because up to 4 different concepts are presented throughout a single unit. (When there are less than 4 areas of focus, I keep the additional posters flipped over to the blank side, as shown on the cover of this product.)
Two language arts units include the study of 2 sight words at a time. For those units, both a single sight word poster and a poster with the 2 sight words are included for your preference choice.
Ongoing Concept Posters
Pages 10-13 contain ongoing concept posters that I leave up for the entire year.
Unit Concept Posters
The pages that follow contain posters that highlight language arts concepts and areas of assessment in math
Notes are at the bottom of each left corner, which indicate which unit the area of study falls under and what header to place it under. Example: U1W2 indicates Unit 1 Week 2. If the same posters are used on back-to-back weeks, the same poster stays up, and this is indicated in the bottom corner as U1W1-4, for example.
Each sight word poster also contains a mini chant I use to teach my students the word. This has proven to be highly effective when done with motions and enthusiasm. Enjoy!
The pictures on the posters are consistent for each skill. For example, each time blending is studied, a picture of a blender is shown. The print awareness picture stays the same throughout the entire series, and the
words change with the concepts.
