• FALL • SIGHT • WORD • SENTENCES •Did you watch any football this weekend?? Tell me who you're rooting for in the comments! 💙🧡 I'm so happy it's football season again and I can watch the Gators play! 🐊My students loved finding these read-trace-write-glue sentences for morning work. These are a great way to practice reading sight words and writing sentences. This was always a fun one to use in the fall at the beginning of football season! 🏈 》http://bit.ly/fallsentences ...

Whoa, we're halfway through September!!! 🍂These monthly reading logs are the perfect way to make reading at home fun! My students and families loved getting their new log each month in their folder. Then when they read a book, they colored part of the picture.I also added different writing and recording pages on the back so they could write the title, characters, setting and more.This a such a fun way to track reading and help hold students accountable for doing it!🔗 bit.ly/readinglogsallyear ...

How do you work on handwriting at the beginning of the year??I always paired handwriting with our letter of the day. These pages also helped my students practice reading simple sentences. And I always, always let them use markers to make it extra fun!!Another way to use these are with dry erase pockets. Save on paper and reuse them over and over! You can put them in a literary center, morning work bin, or for early finishers.You'll find these printables in my Print and Go pack for Letters & Sounds 🔤🖨 bit.ly/printgoletterssounds...
