I'm tellin' ya what. I have the MOST diverse group this year. We are talking MAJOR differentiations. The majority of my kiddos are working on short vowel CVC word families. I am using my Winter Word Families Unit for these kiddos.
They are doing great and love doing these activities! Our school also has a subscription to Reading A-Z and Raz-Kids. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this site. They have tons of leveled readers. I purchased this unit from Made for 1st Grade.
It goes great with the short vowel stories from Reading A to Z.
Now, while most of my little sweeties are doing well with short vowel families, I have some babies who just aren’t there. Like. At.All. These are my RTI kiddos. For those kiddos I am using my Letter Practice RTI units. Each unit contains 5 (black and white) printables for that letter and 2 that review all letters taught previously. Obviously, I use LOTS of hands-on materials, pictures, games, etc. etc. etc. but this is independent work for them.
