Some Freebies and Station Ideas!

Happy December!  Hope you're all doing well and your December is off to a good start!  I've been busy, busy, busy with my first graders!  This last week we've already had 2 snow days and 1 two hour delay due to snow and ice and it's not even winter yet!  Yikes!!  Here's to hoping we can get their Christmas gifts made and wrapped in a week!

If you're looking for some last minute read alouds this holiday season, here is a list of some favorites that our followers enjoy reading!

Next week will be filled with lots and lots of gingerbread activities.  Many can be found {HERE}.  In our Gingerbread Galore Unit!  Since last week was a long a_e focus I made a little freebie as a review for this upcoming week.  If you'd like a copy, just click the pics below There's a worksheet as well if you'd like to have your students write the words after sorting.

 I also will be putting this worksheet out at my intervention time.  During our intervention time, I meet with reading groups and my kiddos choose a variety of literacy activities to complete.  I usually put out a few worksheets that relate to our current reading focus.  Here's a worksheet that I made and put out last week when our focus was the long a sound (a_e).  Click the picture below to grab yourself a copy!

Lastly, here's a Christmas themed word search that I plan on using at some point next week.  If you'd like this as well, just click below!
