I know we try and stay away from copies and worksheets but these ideas are quick, interactive, easily differentiated and will keep your students engaged!
I do phonics daily but I always use one entire ELA block for “Spelling Workshop” it is one of my favorite times of the week. It is a perfect time to meet with my low kids and still challenge my high kids. The kids, for the most part, work quietly-stay engaged and are learning!
I am homeschooling my first grade son right now and could not find a phonics bundle that had everything that I wanted…so I made one!
Each phonics lesson has over 20 pages that can be used in many different ways. I have a growing bundle on TPT right now but each lesson is also sold separately.
