Build-A-Word {short vowel} Games

It’s SO hard to believe that our summer break is already over . . . gosh it went by fast!!!  Can we just say that we are SUPER jealous of all of you who are still sleeping in and enjoying your days at the pool!!!  Tuesday was our “official” first day back at school.  It was a very LONG day.  We got lots of time to work in our classrooms that first day and then that evening we got to meet all of our new kiddos and their families at our annual “Meet the Teacher Night”.  Since then we’ve spent our days sitting and listening.

Most of our inservice meetings so far have focused on the new Common Core Standards and of course MTSS.  Believe it or not we’ve actually taken away a few strategies that we want to incorporate into our own classrooms this year and we are looking forward to sharing them with you sometime soon. 

Unitl then . . . we’ve got a brand new item to share with you that we just listed in our little store over on TpT.  It focuses on building real and nonsense short vowel words.   image

We also want to give a little “shout out” to a brand new blogger.  Her name is Heather and she just started a blog aimed at reaching teachers.  It’s already loaded with lots of fun *FREE* math and literacy activities that are available to download.  Head on over to her blog and check it out.
