Groundhog Day Sight Words!

I am reposting my same post from yesterday because I wanted to add another "Pick and Read OR Roll and Read" that I finished after I posted this!  This is very last minute, but it is a Groundhog Day version:


If you need a quick and EASY sight words activity to use next week, just click on the photo to check it out!



I've just posted some fun new sight word kits at my Teachers Pay Teachers store.  They are called "Pick and Read OR Roll and Read" because you can use them in two ways.  First, you can use the sight word sheets and have students pick an item, in the case of the kit pictured above, they will pick a pet.  After picking the pet, they will read all of the words under that pet.  Then another student will pick a pet and do the same.  I don't mind if students pick the same pets because it strengthens their recognition of sight words with that repetition.  My students love this - there is something about them having a choice and getting to pick what they want.


Another way to use this is to "Roll and Read".  Each kit has a matching die (dice).  Students can roll the die and they will read the words under the pet that the die lands on.  

I like to use the "Pick and Read" option in small groups/guided reading or RTI/interventions.  Then use the "Roll and Read" option as an independent literacy or word work center.  

Each kit has a separate page for each sight word level.  There is a Pre-Primer page, Primer page, First Grade page, Second Grade page, and Third Grade page.  Each page shows the level at the bottom corner.

There are 5 kits/themes to choose from (and if you want to save 50% you can buy all five kits in a crazy cheap bundle!).   Here they are:






Each kit is only $2.00, but if you buy the bundle, you will save 50%!


I still want to mention my free Shapes kit!
There is still time to get this kit!  Just click on the pictures below to see how you can get this kit (plus other FREE kits each month)!

Valentine's Day "Count It" Freebie and some new things....

I've got a fun little "Count It" activity for Valentine's Day, but before I post that I want to remind you that:

 You can get this MEGA Shapes kit FREE if you follow my store at Teachers Pay Teachers by 2/14/15!


All you need to do is follow my store at Teachers Pay Teachers and you will get a FREE kit EVERY MONTH!!!  Click here for specific directions on how to follow my store.


This is an AWESOME 73 Page Kit!!!  I'm so excited to share it with all of my followers on 2/14!

I put together another "Count It" activity, this time for Valentine's Day.  Students will count each picture and then record their answers on the chart below.  I tell my students that for a BONUS activity, to also count ALL of the shapes on the page and write that at the top of the page.  This download contains the Count It printable and it also contains a color-coded answer key to help identify how many of each picture there are.  You could put this up under the document camera or display from your computer when everyone is done and count the pictures together to check the answers.

Click on the picture to download this activity from Google Drive:

I've put a few new things in my store at TPT:



My next two products are Dollar Deals.  I just added a Dollar Deals section to my store.  There are some GREAT products there!  Also, since TPT has a $3.00 minimum purchase on all orders, I thought this would be a great place to look if you ever needed something to help fulfill that $3.00 minimum. 




Have a GREAT week!

Valentine's Day Freebies, New Stuff, Follower Freebies....

I've got some free Valentine's Printables below:

 But first, I've got a ton of new kits that I've added to my store:

First is "Build A Burger".  There are two of these, one contains numbers from 3-10 and the other contains numbers 11-20.  You can save money if you buy both in a bundle (see below).

Stack the matching equations between the buns to make burgers!


(Here's the bundle)

 I LOVE this!  These "Information Folders" include student resources for Reading, Writing, and Math.  There are several cover pages to choose from.  Just print and adhere to a folded piece of 12x18 construction paper and laminate.  These are great for student desks or tables, centers, etc....   You can make them individually for students to keep or use them year after year (like me).









The Information Folders go GREAT with my Writing Center!!!!  SO, I made a bundle to save money if you'd like both:




Here's a fun and engaging PowerPoint for Living and Nonliving Things,  This includes the PowerPoint and Science Notebook Activities (but you don't need a Science Notebook to do the activities!).

 Give The Dog A Bone is a CVC word sorting activity:


Roll, Say, Keep is a fun sight words activity that is GREAT for small group instruction, centers, RTI, etc.....


If you already have one of my best selling items - Read It, Build It, Write It....


You should also get Read It, TYPE It, Write It!!!


If you don't have Read It, Build It, Write It, you can save some money when you buy BOTH in this bundle:


Also, Don't Forget!  You can get this MEGA Shapes kit FREE if you follow my store at Teachers Pay Teachers by 2/14/15!

All you need to do is follow my store at Teachers Pay Teachers and you will get a FREE kit EVERY MONTH!!!  Click here for specific directions on how to follow my store.


Almost forgot the Valentine's Freebies!!!!
