Theme 2 Resources

In reading we just finished up Theme 2 in our Houghton Mifflin reading series.  We know a lot of you are HM users so here’s a few little things we thought you might be able to use. 

Here is a book to go with the story A Surprise For Zig Bug that we recently created and used with our kiddos.  On each page students have to answer a question about the story using a complete sentence and draw a picture to illustrate their answers.  We have been working REALLY hard on this skill!!!

We also have a fun little fall themed game that reviews all of the weekly sight words and decodable words from Theme 2.  We always have our kids say the words printed on each acorn card aloud and use them in a meaningful sentence.  You can even use the cards to have your kids practice putting words in ABC order.  That’s another skill we are working hard on!!!

  3. Love the Zig Bug book! Can't wait to use it with my kiddos! And your acorn sight words are adorable! I would love to buy your lightning words game set separately. Can you sell it that way on TPT? Thanks for the freebies!
