New Products, Freebies, and Lots of Literacy Station Ideas!

Hope you are all having a great start to spring!  I'm currently on spring break and thought I'd fill you in on some new products I've recently added, some freebies related to some topics we're learning about in my first grade classroom, and lots of literacy station ideas!

R-controlled vowels are and will be a big sound focus for the next several weeks in my first grade classroom.  The week before spring break our focus was er, ir, & ur.  When we return it will be or and the week after that ar.  I created a little r-controlled vowel set with lots of goodies to help my first graders when recognizing these sounds.  If you'd like to check it out you can go {HERE} or click any of the pictures below!

This set includes:

 SMALL PICTURE/WORD CARDS : These cards can be used for sorting.

 SORTING MATS & RECORDING SHEETS: These sorting mats can be used for sorting the small sorting cards above.  After sorting, students can record words on recording sheets.

RHYME CARDS (MATCHING GAME): These cards can be used for a matching game. Players begin by placing face down. First player flips two cards over. If they rhyme, the player keeps both cards. If they do not rhyme, flip the player flips both cards over and it’s the next player’s turn. Winner is the player with the most cards.

 I HAVE WHO HAS CARDS: 30 cards are included in this set.  These cards contain pictures  and words.  If playing with less than 30 players, you could give players additional cards.

30 LARGE PICTURE/WORD CARDS: These cards could be used in several different ways. 
Here are two ideas:
*For matching, cut them apart so the words are separate and match the words with the pictures. These cards fit nicely in a pocket chart.
*To play a matching game, distribute word cards evenly between players. Place picture cards face down. First player flips over a picture card. If he/she has the matching word, he/she picks up the card. If not a match, flip card over and it’s the next player’s turn. First player with all of their matches complete is the winner.

Here's an r-controlled vowel word search and ABC order freebie that I have included during my intervention time.  Just click the picture below for your copy!

Here's something new that I've also just added to the store!  I LOVE including these cards at my pocket chart station and they truly help with my first graders vocabulary development.  February, March & April are now available!  To check out this April set you can go {HERE}

Telling time to the hour and half hour was our math focus last week.  I created these cards which I cut in half and my kiddos did a whole group matching activity using this and our large pocket chart.  It was a great review!  You can download this little freebie {HERE}!

 If you're following my stations that I incorporate into my reading block, here's what we started last week, and will finish up a few days after we return from spring break!

*Syllable Sort: March Syllable Set that can be found {HERE}.

*Puzzle Place: Puzzle Place: 100 piece tiger puzzle, 60 piece Pinkalicious puzzle, and environmental print puzzles.  {HERE} is an example of what the environmental print puzzles look like.  I cut them up myself and place them in baggies. 

*Word Way:  Long i Secret Words worksheet that can be found in this pack {HERE} and Write it! with -ir & -er words.  You can get this worksheet by clicking the picture below!

*Fine Motor: Dot Sight Words.  I type up 5-6 sight words (usually longer sight words this time of the year like because, enough, thought, etc...) in a light gray colored font.  My students dot paint them with cotton swabs.  After they are dry, I staple them like a book and the student practices reading the set that he/she created.

*Pocket Place:  March and April words that can be found {HERE} & {HERE}.

*Word Family:  Rhyme match game that can be found {HERE} & Word Family Blackout that can be found {HERE}.  

*Dice Drive: Roll a Sight Word that can be found in this set {HERE} and Sight Word Bingo.  Just click the picture below to check out Sight Word Bingo!

*Artist's Alley:  Bunny craft and poem.  The cute bunny craft can be found {HERE}.  My kiddos complete a writing activity to glue on the back of the bunny's face.  My students make the oval face vertically, so the poem fits nicely on the back when glued.  You can download the writing template and and see an example by clicking either picture below below!
