Last Tuesday I talked about this cool new tool that I’ve developed for you and your students. (Go to that post now and don’t forget to get your free download.)
This week I’m going to go further into this product and what it can do to make your teacher life better.
The Fun Way To Practice Letters, Letter Sounds and Sight Words
Here are the key components and advantages to this sweet new tool.
This set has 10 “levels” that each have 3 corresponding pages. So there is Form 1a,1b,1c, 2a,2b,2c… You get the idea.
Why 3 Versions Of The Same Form?
You may wonder why you’d need 3 different versions that address the same skill. Well I’m glad you asked because I think that’s one of the reasons I think you are going to LOVE this tool. Did I mention the QR Codes that help with the independent guided practice opportunities.
3 Opportunities To Practice The Same Skill
Here’s the story: You have a student. They struggle. They need to practice these skills – like… ALL THE TIME!!!!!. They need practice in the regular classroom. They need practice in the pull out program. They need practice at home. Whew… And you need to try and find 3 resources that address the same skill. (Ummm, yah… easy….. NOT!!)
That’s why I did 3 versions of the same form. One for the regular classroom. One for the pull-out program and one for home. Or, you could use form “a” one week and form “b” the next and form “c” on the 3rd week.
(I can see you doing a happy dance…. I’ll do it with you. Laaaa, laaa, laaa.)
Perfect For a Parent Volunteer
You know, they come in, you are MOSTLY glad to see them, and then you have to find something for them to do that is not too hard but will be useful for the student and that they will leave your classroom saying to themselves “Holy schmoly olie, that teacher’s got it going on… Wow! What a great learning environment.!!!” Not an easy thing on the spur of the moment. Well now you have something…. Yahoo.
Copy these, put them in a binder with one that will face the child and one that will face the volunteer when the binder is set up like a tent. Then it’s like a practice, progress monitor session going on.
If the volunteer wants to use the QR code and do things that way… cool… go for it.
Scope and Sequence
Being a former curriculum director I appreciate the “Scope and Sequence”. It really is handy when planning. I like to pull it out when doing lesson planning for the long and short term.
Scope and Sequence is also useful for when an administrator walks in and says, “So what is this?” That’s when you whip this baby out and throw it towards them while at the same time carrying on with the lesson or activity they have now barged in on.
It gives them something to read and put in their folder and, it looks good to have something official to give them.
