***These "Whole Shabang!" units are Non-FIction based Units so you will not get the cutesy clip art. I intentionally left it out to focus on realia with real pictures to enhance vocabulary ***
The Units also include mostly recording sheets and NOT worksheets to use with the pictures. the goal is simplicity by just changing the pictures out. There is a cut and paste activity and a passage to check for transference of sound spelling. I use the " Whole Shabang" units and the mini-unit that correlates together. Please visit my blog at thewayiteach.blogspot.com to see how the units are used.
Reading A-Z Decodable Books: I have taken many of the sound spelling words from the Reading A-Z books that correspond to the sound spelling in each unit to help with vocabulary development with those books but the books are not necessary for the unit
This format and activities in this unit have boosted student learning especially my RTI and EL students. This unit has a variety of activities and options to accommodate teaching styles and student differentiation. Great for small group, centers, and whole group. Other units follow this same format to promote independence. Common Core Standards included.
***If you are looking for the cute clip art and center type word-work with games and practice sheets rather than student created work with recording sheets than please look at the my Mini-Units***
