Reading Street Unit 1, Week 1 Sam Come Back

Can it be? Is summer really almost over? AHHHHHHH!

Don't get me wrong...I am excited for the new year and to meet my new kiddos. However, I have really been enjoying the summer and having the time to make things that I wanted to. I have enjoyed my evenings playing board games with my son. I am definitely going to have to make more time for that this year. Last year was my first year and it took a lot of time and focus. I at least know where I am headed this year! WOOHOO! lol

I am almost done in my classroom. I have decorated in the room. I still have to organize my office and hang my wall decor. Fun fun!

I have already started working on my curriculum this year. I have already completed my BTS packet and printed it to be ready for the first week. It will help me to review Kindergarten skills and assess. I will be implementing DAILY 5 this year. Therefore, most of my new packets will be applicable to both.

I have created a packet for Sam, Come Back. There are word sorts. They all deal with the short a sound and final ck. They have short a word family sorts as well. There are many different recording sheets. I have lots of b/w to save on ink. I have included as a FREEBIE some sentences that the students are to cut apart and place in order. They will then glue it in order into their writing journal and illustrate. More advanced writers will add to the sentence. There is a listening sheet that I made. It also has a sheet for them to write their word study words to practice. This will allow for their learning to be differentiated. There are even spelling word sheets. Students may take them home and study. I have included a color version that I will laminate and put in word work to make the words using play-dough, pipe cleaners, sand, markers, etc. It is even color coded according to the sounds that they will be learning this week.
* To get the freebie: go to TPT and click download preview.



I am giving away one of these packets to a lucky winner! I hope that you will enjoy! All you have to do is be a follower of my blog. :) Easy enough!
