Easter Before and After Letter Practice

Are you looking for practice for alphabetical order without the traditional putting words into alphabetical order? This practice sheet would be great for your students. The students write the letter that comes before and after the letter shown for each question. 


You can print and have students write directly on the sheet or you can print and place it in a dry-erase pocket so you can print once and use it many times. 
 
You could also use magnet letters with this sheet by laminating the sheet and then asking students to place the letter that goes before and after! Now you can use the printable over and over, plus kids are having a hands-on experience.

Ziplock Bag Tracing Activities for Handwriting and Phonics Activities

Are you looking for an activity you can use over and over with students or kids? Ziplock tracing is a great activity to practice handwriting, sight words, and so much more. 

 
The best part of this post and learning resource is this post will continue to grow as I create more Ziplock bag tracing sheets for you to use with your students or kids. 
 
 
Tip: Be sure to cut an inch or two at the top to help the page fit perfectly into the ziplock gallon-sized bag.  Also, don’t feel the need to remove the writing on the bag, flip it over and use the side without writing.

Which Dolch words are Decodable?

Many words on the Dolch lists can be decoded by learning their spelling pattern. Other words on the Dolch lists are irregular, and you will need to teach these words as tricky words or words that do not follow the rules! 
 
The lists below share the words in kindergarten that can be decoded by spelling patterns traditionally taught in kindergarten and the words that are taught as tricky/rule breakers in kindergarten. Following the kindergarten list shared will have your student or child reading 109 of the 220 Dolch words by the end of kindergarten. 
 
The second set of lists is the words that can be decoded by spelling patterns, traditionally taught in first grade, and the words taught at tricky/rule breakers in first grade. Following the kindergarten and 1st grade list will have all of the Dolch words mastered by the end of first grade.

Roll A Short A Word Practice

Roll A Short A Word Practice

 

Are you looking for a fun way for your students or child to practice reading short “a” words? The Roll “A” Word practice resource will be perfect.  All you need to do is print and grab some dice. 
 
A student rolls the die and reads the words in the column that matches the number on their die. The set has two different versions of the short “a” words to practice.

Short A Word Ladder Practice

A word ladder is a sequence of words that differ from the previous word by replacing some letter(s) in that word to make a new word. Word Ladders teach and reinforce letter patterns, phonics, and rhyming, through writing, reading, and repetition.  
 
Word ladders help children learn to read word families.  
 
For instance, let’s take the ‘at’ word family. Words within this word family are ‘that, cat, pat, mat, fat, rat, sat, at, bat, hat.’ Children learn the word ‘at’ and then use their phonics skills to sound out each of the other words within the ladder. The children can read up and down the ladder, quickly practicing the words within the word family. 
 
Word Ladders help children limit phonetic frustration and help build phonics skills, spelling confidence, and self-esteem.
 
I use the word ladders below in two different ways. I print and laminate the pages to put in centers so students can practice their ladders. I also place an Ipad in the center to record themselves reading up and down their ladder. I use the recording to check for understanding or send it to parents/guardians. 
 
I also used the word ladders in the whole group. I project the word ladder on the board. Students have their whiteboards and expo markers. We read the first word together. Then I tell the students to write what they believe the next word is on their whiteboard. I ask everyone to show me their whiteboards to see who understands and who doesn’t. Then I call on a volunteer to either tell me what letter to change or ask them to come up to the whiteboard and change it for me. 
 
You could also use them as independent work, small groups, home practice, really whatever way you feel is best for your class or child.
