Two For Tuesday!

I have just realised it is a week since I last posted!  Welcome to July and my first day of summer break!  Last week was horrendously busy, but school is finally finished and I am trying my best to catch up on everything.  I had a very long lie in today, hence my lateness in posting my Two For Tuesday!

Two For Tuesday is part of The Teaching Tribune's Summer Blogging Series - you are more than welcome to join in the link up or just browse all the 50% off products!  The link to The Teaching Tribune is in the button below where you can find the link up.


So, on to my two 50% off products this week:

A fun way for children to practice Dolch Sight Words!

I have written 30 sentences using all the Dolch First Grade Sight Vocabulary. The sentences have been completed using Pre-Primer, Primer and some Second Grade Sight Vocabulary, plus Dolch Nouns.

Each sentence contains 6 words and is split into 1 word per flashcard with an illustration.

Just print, cut and laminate for durability.

The cards should be scrambled for students to read and place in the correct order. The sentences can then be recorded in the accompanying booklet. Each page is numbered to match the flashcards, has writing lines and a space for an illustration.

I have also included an assessment sheet, color-coded to show progress throughout the school year.

This PDF contains 64 pages in total.

I created this pack to encourage struggling readers from second to fourth grades to practice their comprehension skills, using non-fiction text with age-appropriate content.

The texts vary in length, but I have tried to keep the sentence structure and vocabulary simple. The passages are mostly written within the third to fifth grade Lexile bands. A word of caution however - the levels should only be used as a guideline - some of the more challenging topic vocabulary increases the Lexile level. (This type of vocabulary is topic specific and students would not be expected to know it).

The pack contains 2 pages per topic, which can be printed back to back. The first page introduces the text and questions. On the second page, students can highlight the piece of text which contains the answer. Some questions may require the students to look beyond the text to infer the answer.

I have used this pack with my advanced first graders, although the basic premise is for intervention with older grades.

• The texts help students develop skills in retrieving information from text.
• The check boxes allow those students, who struggle with handwriting and writing skills, to demonstrate their understanding and achieve success.
• These texts are suitable for independent work and ideal for shared and guided reading. They are also suitable for small group work where reading skills can be modelled, practiced and developed.
