Last week we finally finished going over, and over, and OVER procedures with workstations!! I have actually been able to meet with groups this week, and...gasp...not be interrupted!!
I wanted to share my jumping off point with one of my groups. I ordered from Scholastic the Fall Sight Words Books. They are great! Each book focuses on two sight words with an autumn theme.
Well, I noticed that the size of these books would work perfectly with Nicole, from First Grade O.W.L.s', folder holders! So...here is my folder holder:
On the inside left hand pocket, I made sight word flash cards that correspond with the books:
The right hand pocket holds the sight word books:
I was inspired by The Moffatt Girls to create color by number sight words to go with each book:
This small group of firsties really enjoyed their book (I assigned each child one title) and the color by number activities. These books have really boosted their reading confidence.
I hope that you have enjoyed this glimpse into my small group time.
