Are you gearing up for "Read Across America"? I love this day because I love books so much. It is the perfect excuse to spend the entire day in jammies and carve out time to just celebrate reading to your class. I love to invite district "big shots" to my classroom. My principal comes in (silk PJ's) and parents. We usually serve oatmeal with toppings to the kids and they are on board for this special day. In case you are not aware of this, Kohl's is offering a fantastic deal on everything Seuss and you can purchase a variety of books or matching stuffed animals for just $5.00 What a deal and all the money is donated to helping kids with cancer. I am sure many of you already support this but check it out if you have never heard of this fantastic deal. I needed a new cat since mine has been loved to death! What are you reading during this celebration?

This packet is full of differentiated activities to allow the teacher the flexibility to meet the needs of students with a wide range of skills. It has lots of cut and paste work which our kids must do to build up those fine motor skills! Some children still need practice with beginning sounds, others ending, and some are ready for blending. How many of you have children who still don't hear the difference between sounds and still cannot identify them. Yup! Transitional Kindergarten students and primary special needs kids should profit from a simple packet of this type too.This will not conflict with any reading program. So grab the tools you need to give our kids a strong foundation for learning... Click here to go to my TpT store if this is what you need. What do you like to use for cvc word activities?
Have a happy day of teaching today.
