I have to keep asking myself, "Where did my summer go?"
I'm just not quite ready to let summer go.
---even if sometimes I DID want a vacation from my own kids! :) You would think with a 14 year old and a 10 year old that this wouldn't be the case---BUT some days---it most definitely was! Ohh that TOGETHERNESS! :)
BUT---today---TODAY I DID work on something. I woke up to this sweet email. An email asking me if I had any other stories like this freebie I shared a while back:
You can click the image above to check it out.
So I thought to myself...why not try another story? After all, my kids started back to school today, and I was home with hubby. If I made myself busy or at the very least ACTED busy, he would eventually find his way to the laundry and housework.
I thought about the what I could probably use for intervention with my students. Our district adopted Fry Words for this school year. I have already made Fry Fluency Reads like the Dolch Fluency Reads that I've shared on this post. See link HERE. You can check out the Fry Reads on TpT from this link HERE.
Since we are working with Fry words, I wanted to stick with using the first few words on the Hundred list. I came up with this story called The Dog.
Several sight words are used throughout the story,
as well as CvC words for decoding, and simple use of picture clues.
These are the words I focused on in this selection.
I also wanted to include a simple comprehension component.
Finally, just like in the story The Little Cat, I made sure to include some word work/sentence work.
If this looks like something that you could use for Back to School with your students, or for intervention groups, you can download this freebie on TpT.
