I am relaxing at the beach with my family and have five days of posts ready for you! My first guest blogger for the week is my good friend and colleague Sarah from Learning is for Superstars.
Andrea & I teach in the same elementary school and the last two years have collaborated with my firsties. There are a couple of “things” we do as part of our literacy routine – poems, tracking, sight words, and word families. Our previous reading series used the –at word family early in the year. We worked hard to model the understanding of word families to help the children read by finding the chunks. Like many groups of primary children, many children understood and were able to roll with it, but a small group had difficulty and needed additional practice. This pack focuses on the –at word family through a poem, matching word and picture cards, word family house, cut and paste, and color, write, and draw activities. With repetition and using different combinations of activities, the children became proficient at finding the word families and reading more challenging words. My –at word family pack is free for you to use!

Thanks so much Sarah! I can't wait until next school year for more collaboration opportunities!
