Monday

I Can Rhyme Chart

Each week you’ll be introducing children to a new word family or blend.  Start off the week with this colorful chart.  Talk with children about the different words they can make with this special word family and try to think of other rhyming words together.

Letter Sound Chart

Sound out each letter individually, and then blend them together as you move your finger across the letters and arrows. Encourage children to keep the sound going until they reach the end of the arrow, changing and blending sounds when their finger crosses over new letters.

Handwriting Worksheet

This is a simple worksheet for children to practice writing their new words. Each handwriting page features a place for children to write their name and the written word family at the top.  Pictures and their corresponding words are shown, and children have the opportunity to trace and then write the words on their own, checking off each row they complete.

Blank Word Family Template

These blank word family templates are very versatile and can be filled in a variety of ways: Playdough mats, Stickers, Painting, Dot Markers, Fingerprints, Cut & Paste Collage (a-words, m-words)…..etc.

Sight Word Cards

Each week children will learn two or three new sight words.  Introduce children to these new words and use the sight word cards to begin building small sentences. Children can cut and store cards for later use.

 

Tuesday

Sound it Out

Children build on the previous day's activities by starting off the day reviewing each letter sound and blending them into words.  Children match each word to the corresponding picture.  The second part of this worksheet provides children the opportunity to deconstruct words into beginning, middle and ending sounds, circling each letter as they go. Encourage children to say these sounds out loud as they work.

Interactive Notebook Activity

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, children begin to build and add to their interactive folder.  Children cut out and assemble the mini-booklet and add it to their folder.  Each mini-booklet contains new information covering key Language Arts standards for Kindergarten.

Write & Find

This is a simple spelling activity for children to work on listening for individual letter sounds.  After writing each word, children find the words in the word search below.

Spinner Winner

This worksheet doubles as handwriting practice and a fun game!  Using a paperclip spinner, children write each word they land on, first one to the top wins!

Daily Sight Word Work

Review sight words with yesterday’s word cards. Children then practice writing their sight words with these simple activity pages.  Each page features dot painting and a dot to dot for children to solve.  Smaller words leave room for writing practice and extra activities.

 

Wednesday

Read & Respond

Children work on key reading and comprehension skills with this simple worksheet.  Instruct children to put their finger on the dot and read each word.  After reading children respond by answering questions or completing a writing activity.  This worksheet is progressive throughout the curriculum so reading selections and responses will be increasingly harder as the child strengthens their reading skills.

Making Words w/Letter Tiles

Children build words by cutting out the letter tiles and pasting them to the correct word mat.  If you have them, these cards will work with plastic letter tiles as well.

Nonsense Words

Children build words by choosing a beginning letter and pairing it with their word family.  After saying the sounds out loud, children much decided it they created a real word or a nonsense word, and write it on the corresponding list.

Find & Color Word Family

Children find the words that have the same ending sound and color them.  Children then write three of the words they found.

Sight Word Maze

A fun activity for children to catch all of theirsight words as they work their way through the maze. Encourage children to read the words alound as they find them, counting up how many they found.

 

Thursday

Story Reader

Children put their reading skills to the test with this end of the week comic book style story reader.  The goal is for children to read this story three times on their own.  If your child is struggling with this reader, take breaks and review or even try to finish is over the weekend.

Guided Writing

Each week children will complete a simple story writing prompt.  Children are encouraged to use newly acquired words as well as practice language and grammar skills. Each writing prompt provides children with the necessary framework to complete the activity with little help from a teacher.  Upon completion, children are encouraged to cut out their writing and word box and paste them into their interactive notebook.  Writing samples can be read during review week and vocabulary can be used as a reference for future assignments.

Interactive Notebook

On Thursday children continue to build and add to their interactive notebook.  Children cut out and assemble the mini-book and paste it into the next available page. Each mini-book contains new information covering key Language Arts standards for Kindergarten.

Daily Sight Word Work

Review sight words with yesterday’s word cards. Children then practice writing their sight words with these simple activity pages.

End of the Week Crown

Children cut and paste to create their own word family crown to wear!

 

 

Review & Blends Week

Every five weeks has been scheduled as an optional review week for word families and grammar concepts learned during the previous four weeks. (If you find your child is needing review, check out our optional review and assessment pack.)  For children ready to progress we’ve scheduled a week of beginning blends for children to learn and pair up with their word families.  The blends week schedule (shown above) is very similar to a normal week with a few substitutions:

Blend Sound Chart

Each week you’ll be introducing children to a new word family or blend.  Start off the week with this colorful chart.  Talk with children about the different words they can make with this special word family and try to think of other rhyming words together.

Blending to Read

This is a simple activity page for children to practice close listening to the beginning sound and identify the correct blend. Children should use the dots and arrows as finger placement guides as they blend each word together.

Find & Color

Children find the words that have the beginning blend sound and color them.  Children then write two of the words they found.

Draw & Write (Mon & Wed)

Children follow the six-step drawing guidelines to create their own fun characters.  Drawing builds small motor skills, increased confidence and provides writing opportunities for children to create stories for their creations.

Science Sequencing (Mon & Wed)

Children build 3-step sequences and learn to write or draw short responses in a First, Next, Last format.  Science topics include life cycles, plant growth, hibernation, states of matter and more.

Nonsense Words (Tues & Thurs)

Children build words by choosing a beginning letter and pairing it with their word family.  After saying the sounds out loud, children much decided it they created a real word or a nonsense word, and write it on the corresponding list.

Sort it Out   (Tues & Thurs)

Sorting is a great way to assess comprehension.  Children use the included game cards and mats to sort through their newly learned beginning blends. Encourage children to cut out each picture and sort them into the correct categories.  Remind them to check each word before they paste it down.

Bingo Games  (Fri)

Finish out your blends week with a fun game of phonics bingo!  Each bingo board features images of the previously learned word families.  Children can take turns choosing and then reading the calling cards to find out which picture was called.

A very AFFORDABLE & SYSTEMATIC READING CURRICULUM for Homeschoolers

LOVE the well-paced & interactive design - Had been searching for something like this for a long time. Compared to other 'reading programs' out there that make you pay through your nose, this was way more affordable for homeschoolers esp. those who are already on shoestring budgets. I really appreciate that whoever designed this curriculum did not resort to EXPLOITING homeschooling families the way many programs often do. I do wish they had a printed version too (with or without pre-perforated pages) even if it was $5 more - ink is not cheap and some parents would really appreciate that option. Quite happy otherwise. Thank you for the effort that went behind putting this together and making it available as a very viable alternative to all those other EXPENSIVE options out there!

My 5 year old girl LOVES this!

We have a struggling reader in our house. She struggles with confidence and focus. And she sometimes gets a little lost amongst her siblings. I got this program for her and me to do in a very specific one-on-one setting. She is THRIVING with this! She is building confidence each day! She asks to do this work every day. And the crowns at the end of each week's lesson are a HUGE incentive for her. So far she is the "AM Queen," the "AT Queen," and the "AG Queen!" And she really CAN read and recognize these words. She can also spell them!!
I gave this a 4 star rating simply because I have to adjust a little bit of the grammar portion of the program to fit the definitions we teach in our homeschool for nouns, verbs, etc.
