Wild About Words-Silent E Edition

So friends, I've been a little MIA this past week.  I didn't post a Tuesday Tip, and I didn't post a What's Cooking Wednesday. My Tip and my What's Cooking would've been one in the same.  When life gets too busy---order take out!  :)

I did however update the giveaway post.  If you want to check that out click HERE

I was working hard on getting my 2nd set of Super Reader Finished.  My lower firsties have truly had success with it.  As a matter of fact, I tested them on the 2nd set of words Tuesday and there were quite a few taking home flash cards to practice.  I retested them on Wednesday and several took home their completed sticker book!  I was THRILLED! 

I changed how I am implementing in my classroom since ALL of them want a sticker book.  I tested them on all 25 words of the set (knowing that I had students that already mastered all the words, but they wanted their book nonetheless).  As I tested them, I placed a black dot on the line of the Super Reader Sticker Book, and then when they were done, they put stickers throughout their book except on the ones that had a black dot.  I just quickly made flash cards with index cards since they didn't necessarily miss 5 words per set.  The ones that go to pull out intervention are having their 5 words shuffled in each week.  The rest of my class are tested for the first 10 minutes of my Reading Intervention time.  Then if next week, I still have students struggling, I use the sight word readers and skill work for the words.  This is how I also did Set One.  I had two students (other than my pull out group) that were working on the sight word stories.  They loved the books and felt successful reading it.

Here is a sneak peek of Super Reader-Sight Words Set 2.

 I also put just the stories into a set as well.

I started working on my US Symbol pack with my kiddos this week, and will continue that after our LONG WEEKEND! :)  Here's a peek of that if you want to see what it looks like:

I feel like I haven't given you a freebie for a while either---so here you go friends! :)

Do you remember the Wild About Words game I made over the summer?  
You can click HERE to see the post. 
Well, my struggling kiddos are ready for silent e fun for  a review.
Therefore, I made a silent e version! :)

Happy Friday everyone!!  I hope you have a great weekend! :)


  1. Take out! Yep that was my week too. Tonight at dinner I asked my husband, did we cook one day this week? That is how busy the week was. This reader unit looks amazing. I think I may have to add it to my wishlist (that keeps growing,,, and growing,,, with every season and event!)

    Yep, they all love those stickers. One of my students gave me a package of stickers for Valetnine's Day. He said to me, "You give out a lot of stickers so we do our work. I think my friends would like these stickers because they smell!" Love it!!! then I open the card from his mother and inside was more stickers that the boy wanted and she told him no. She gave them to me to give out during class time becuase he is very difficult to handle.

    ahhhh a sticker!

  2. Take out has been my life too! I need to get back on the cooking bandwagon because I am not making good choices when it comes to eating out! Your units look amazing. Thank you for the freebie! Thanks for your amazing giveaway again :)

  3. Yea!! I've been wanting a more challenging version of the CVC word scoop. My kids loved playing the CVC version!!! Something about using those scoops!!

  4. This is the skill I have been working on for the last few weeks with my firsties. Some get it...some really don't. This is a nice center for them to practice with! Thanks so much for all of your creativity and kindness in sharing!

  5. We are just starting long vowels in first grade so this will be great! Thanks!

  6. Thanks for the long e game. My students can always use a fun way to review those long vowels.

  7. Thanks for the silent e cards! How awesome - it'll be a great word work center!

  8. I'm definitely downloading the Silent E game. I still have kids who just don't seem to get it. The US Symbols pack is Terrific! Can't wait to use it.
    You're making the Sight Word Stories very tempting, I have a little Hispanic girl who is an excellent student, but is struggling to learn the sight words.
