Sunday Spotlight - Reading AtoZ Resources


Each Sunday we are going to begin spotlighting one of the products in our TpT store.  Not only will we link you up with previous posts about how you could use this product in your classroom, but . . . we will also offer it at a discounted price throughout the week.

As first grade teachers we know that everyone has probably dove in head first with long vowels by now.  Some kids may be swimming right along and reading everything you put in front of them . . . but let’s admit it . . . there are probably a few several who are sinking at this point.  Everything they ever knew about vowels has started to change.  It’s a lot to take in and process for their little brains!!!

Just last week Diane’s class was working on a morning job and one of her kiddos came up to her desk looking very confused.  She thought the question she had to answer on her worksheet said “What’s your favorite snake?” when really it just said “What’s your favorite snack?”.  You can imagine the confusion because she didn’t have a favorite snake!!!  Nor do we . . . unless dead ones count!!!

While our reading series {Houghton Mifflin} provides lots of take home books and guided reading books we are always looking for additional resources to use with all levels of readers to reinforce the phonics skills we are covering.  Luckily, we have access to a great database of decodable readers through Reading A-Z thanks to our school district.

Click {here} to read the post we did earlier this fall about Reading A-Z.

So, with all of this being said . . . this week’s spotlight item is our Reading AtoZ  {Long Vowel} Resource Pack.  It includes over 20+ printables that you can use with the long vowel books available on the website.  Each worksheet contains open response questions as well as a spot to record words from the story that follow the target phonics pattern. 

Here’s a little {sneak} peek . . .clip_image013

We must tell you that there is a membership fee associated with this website . . . and for a {very} limited time they are offering a discount.  It is worth every penny!!!  We would be lost at guided reading without these books.  They are such a useful resource AND once they are printed you can use them over and over again.
