What’s in the Box Wednesday: First Grade

IMG_7483web.jpg

Happy Wednesday everyone! Today I’m back with a What’s in the Box Wednesday post with Tinker Bell’s first grade boxes this year. In their first box, each of my kiddos has an Expanding Acrylic Drawer Organizer with all of the supplies they’ll need. This keeps them from getting up a thousand times during class to get something! She also has her Daily Learning Notebook which is how she starts each morning. She’s very used to this now and does it independently.   In the next box she has her Abeka reading and All About Spelling Level 2. I am currently using a mix of Abeka readers and the All About Spelling program together.   The next box houses only the Math U See stuff. The blocks, videos, etc take up a lot of room.   The next box has her Abeka Letters & Sounds 1 and Language 1 worksheets. I like these workbooks because they go well with AAS, and serve as a way to re-enforce the things that she is learning.   Her bottom drawer has our World’s … [Read more...]

Hi everyone! I wanted Tinker Bell to do a little more work on her sight words, so I made these Pre-Primer Kindergarten Sight Word Sentence worksheets. Each one has the word along with a funny sentence.

First Grade Dolch Sight Word Cards

firstpromo.jpg

Good morning all of you super cool first grade teachers! As promised last week, today I’m sharing some very cute and fun First Grade Sight Word Caterpillar cards for you!   --> Download the First Grade Sight Word Caterpillar <-- How to use the caterpillar sight words: Print pages 3-6 on cardstock and laminate for durability if you choose. Page 7 includes blank caterpillar pieces so you can add your own words! TIP: Laminate two sheets back to back so the printed sides are facing out, and the blank sides are touching. Run both sheets through your lamination machine, then cut apart and cut out circles. This will create a circle that is laminated on one side, but not on the back side. This helps with creating a backside that is not slippery and can be taped to the wall. Add the caterpillar head to a blank area of your wall where you plan to add the caterpillar sight word cards. Add each new caterpillar sight word body part to your wall as you learn it. Review … [Read more...]

A-Z Cursive Handwriting Worksheets

Hi everyone! After publishing my K4 Handwriting Worksheets (manuscript) I had a ton of requests for Cursive Handwriting Worksheets. It took me a bit to get them completed, but here they are!   As usual, you can print on copy paper and have students write with pencil on the sheets, or you can also print on copy paper, then laminate or stick inside a page protector and allow them to use them with Expo Dry-Erase markers! That way they’re re-usable and you can practice your sheets as many times as needed!   --> Download the Cursive Handwriting Sheets <-- The line spacing for these sheets should be appropriate for kindergarten, first , or second graders who are just starting with cursive handwriting skills. Each letter includes capital and lowercase letter practice. The first letter has arrows to help students properly form the letters, and the rest are simply dashed font for them to trace. Then the bottom line is blank with only the starting dot so they can … [Read more...]
