My reading group enjoyed reading these interactive and engaging booklets. Especially appealing to students who are struggling in reading, these little nonfiction booklets may help them feel successful. Kids who struggle in reading feel less stress when they see text on a single page or a mini book. They like to fold their own pages and see how a single page transforms into an accordion book!
Content specific words are in bold text. Teachers and parents may want to preview the words in bold text prior to reading. Another idea is to create flash cards of the bold text. (I may be adding this to the packet soon!)
On another note, these little books would be suitable for reading stations or centers during the school year, and for summer tutoring, too.

I have lots of success motivating kids to set fluency goals. These graph templates are really helpful when you need to get your kids up to speed. In my store, Growing Smart Readers, you'll find this fun, student-friendly tool. Choose the template that best fits your gang. Currently, I have two resources that have been well-tested and received: The Animal Track theme, and Monster Theme. The data can also be used for parent/teacher conferences, and team meetings. Kids love to keep a notebook of their increasing speed and accuracy!

For anyone who has returned to this blog, you may notice that I'm not very regular about blogging. That's okay, because I have been busy sprucing up and spring cleaning my store! And what a chore it is! Making resources that are high quality and engaging for children is time-consuming, and yet I love doing it. It's not about the money either, because if I were to really average in all the time for how many downloads I get, it it means I'm probably working for less than 50 cents an hour. Ha! Well, my real job is teaching, and that's where I need to put most of my energy until the day I retire!
I enjoy creating and exploring new ideas--so whether I get big sales or not, it's worth it! By the way, if you've ever checked out my store, or purchased anything...I want you to know that I DO appreciate it!
This is a great little packet that includes an "I HAVE, WHO HAS" game related to sports AND a writing booklet--easy to assemble and write in using the prompts given at the top of each page. The booklet is made up of 12 half pages, just the right size for hesitant writers. They don't feel overwhelmed with lines and text--and the pressure is off them for having to write a lot on a page.
Below shows how to create the easy book from the pages in the file. Suitable for students in grades 1-2, although if you have some hesitant third grade readers or writers, this would work for them as well.
This is one of my newest single products I have just posted in my store! I'm really excited about this because it is the third tongue twister product that I have now. It was added to create a bundle of tongue twisters that are tempting enough to tangle the tongue of your terrific second and third graders.
Take a moment to check out these sample pages. I had a blast coming up with nonsense words like tippytots and blabblerblast. These silly nonsense words are just right for giving your students practice with phonemic skills and syllabication.
The plus with this type of resource is that it works for kids who need to practice reading AND speech. My other two tongue twister resources usually get positive feedback from SPL therapists. This is brand new, so I am hoping to see some feedback soon on this one.
I'll admit, this one is the most challenging. I recommend this for grades 2-4 because it really can get their tongue in a twist! Click on the link below to find this is my store!
Thanks so much for checking this out. Please stop by my blog again soon!
