postheadericon Happy 90th Day! Skills Sheets for Unit 1 Reading Street





 I can't believe how quickly this year is going by. We are celebrating our 90th day today, and I couldn't be more excited to be half way through the school year. I love the middle of the year. The kids are in a routine, continually reading more and more words each day, and growing by leaps and bounds! 

To celebrate the halfway mark, I thought I would post the skills sheets (by units) throughout the week! We have recevied a few requests for these, so I thought I would post them all together in one place. 


Today, I am going to post Unit 1 Skills Sheets. 


These are great for planning lessons. I also like to keep them in my teacher binder for quick reference in the classroom. I also keep a copy of the overviews at home for planning.

They also are a nice resource to send home to parents each week.

postheadericon From Trash to Treasure-DIBELS nonsense words


We all know the saying, "One man's trash is another man's treasure." A  first grade teacher gave me this bag of foam dice, which was used in a previous math curriculum. Now that we have piloted and implemented our new math program, this bag of dice wasn't needed any longer. So, she gave them to me! 

After looking at them, measuring them, and imagineering them, I decided to use the foam dice to make a nonsense word game. 




I took the dice home and measured them. Each side measured 1.5 inches. 

Now, I had to figure out how to get letters onto the dice. I didn't want the letters to be too big, as I wanted the dice to be able to roll on the foam edges. 

So, I created a document with letters to fit the dice. I inserted "Auto Shapes" in Microsoft Word and created a square to be 1.25 inches. Once I made the square, I copied 18 squares onto the page. Then, I inserted a text box into the squares. I copied that text box into each 1.25 inch square and put a letter in each one. I used letters that were easily recognizable to first graders, even if they were upside down on the die. In ten minutes, I had the document done. No problem!

It looked like this:


letter squares 1.25

I printed the document and laminated it using my home laminator. If you don't have one, you must get one! They are great! 

I cut out all the letters. 

Now, I had to adhere the letters onto the blocks. It was time to get out my trusty hot glue gun. 

I glued the vowels onto one block, and the consonants onto the other two blocks. 




Another center ready to go!
