Why does it take a pirate so long to learn the alphabet? He spends years at C!!! Kids LOVE jokes! These short videos teach them jokes as they decode words. They review beginning, middle, and ending sounds as they write the punch lines. As they write, they predict the punch line and what letter they will use next. This is GREAT for improving reading and spelling skills. Kids BEG to do this! Nothing to prep - just push play! 10 jokes for $3!
Our guest blogger shares useful tips on how to stretch out mentor texts to not only improve reading skills but to also be used in cross-disciplinary units. Mentor texts can be used for reading, writing, social studies, science, and even math!
These phonics poems are the perfect way to have your students practice fluency! I love to put these poems in a poetry folder and each week we have a new word family or phonics skill to learn. Kindergarten, first grade, and second grade students can read the poems, visualize the poems, and practice nonsense words easily in a phonics center, whole group or small group with the teacher!
