WHERE ARE MY ANIMAL FRIENDS?
Here are some resources for this story.
I use these cards in a pocket chart throughout the week.
High Frequency Cards:
I also have these in a pocket chart. We use them to read and to put into ABC order.
Words that end in -dge:
I created these cards to help the children build words with the ending -dge. As you can see from the picture below, I laminated the cards and cut them out. Then, I had my students put them on cookie sheets to practice building their words. I modeled how to build words, then had the students practice at my teacher table. Once they were building words easily, I put this out into an independant center for them to do independantly.

They used this sheet to build on and wrote the words on the bottom part of the sheet.
After we were done with word building, I used this sheet to practice reading words with -dge. had my students highlight the -dge in each word, so they would remember to use the /j/ sound. I read the words to the students, then we read them as a group, then the kids each had a turn reading the words.

Comparing using -er and -est
I used picture cards to teach this skill this week. I printed the sheets, laminated them, and then cut them out. I used my large pocket chart on my teacher easel to model comparing two things and then three or more things.
