Spelling and Phonics – Interactive – QUICK PREP - FUN!

Well a little, just run a few copies!

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 wantedso I made one

Each phonics lesson has over 20 pages that can be used in many different ways. I have a bundle on TPT right now but each lesson is also sold separately.

I learned quickly when I started teaching that students enjoy using different "things/items"! 
I use different items from my room any chance I get! I train my students early on, we keep a ROUTINE, and we have fun!
Here are some things I use for my phonics and spelling block.

I use pages from my Phonics Bundlebut use what you have!

Here are some of my favorite items to use...

Bingo Stampers



Dry-erase Pockets

Scented Markers


Alphabet Stamps

Picture Stamps

Pocket Chart

Bright Paper

Letter Magnets


Scented Markers

Little Erasers



Smart Board
