I have been reading through some of the nice things you have said about my little old blog... It simply warms my heart~Do I sound like I am 80 years old? Well, it is true (no, I'm not 80), your kind words really make me smile, so thank you! My district set out to create a common language for word attack strategies that would move up the grade levels.. We looked at many resources and tried to pick the simplest, yet most explicit language to help our students. I adapted these posters from several resources. Since I made them... You can use the bookmarks to mark off the strategies you have taught (and they demonstrated). I hope you find this helpful!

A Springtime Activity for Sorting Consonant Digraphs | Make, Take & Teach I’ve been feeling like I’ve been neglecting my first and second grade teaching friends lately by posting bunches of early reading activities. When I purchased those cute little flower boxes at Walmart for the Springtime Vowel Sorting, I couldn’t help but pick up a few of those adorable frogs. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with them at the time. So, thinking about what I can make for first grade, I came up with a consonant digraph sorting activity.
