CVC Update and Giveaway!

Hello all my wonderful friends.  This is going to be a quick post because I am STARVING!!!  I had to skip my lunch today because of a meeting and so the little orange I ate quickly while my kids were working on addition is not holding me over!!!!  I must find something to get in my belly!!!

Moving on, I created a little CVC packet a few months ago and it has been working great in my small groups!  However, I still have a few little sweeties that just can't get past those CVC words and speed up their fluency, so I went back to the packet and added a few more things for them to work on!!  Hopefully, your kiddos can benefit from them as well.  Here are pictures of what is included!!

This first activity, kids will fill in the missing sound in each CVC word.  I have included picture cards where the beginning sounds are missing, cards with the medial sound missing, cards with the ending sound missing, and then for the more advanced cards where all sounds are missing.  Students will place a picture card on their work mat {included} and use either a dry erase marker or letter tiles to fill in the sounds.  
 These are CVC puzzles.  Students will piece together the sounds to form a CVC word, the pictures aid them when spelling them out.

This next activity is a matching activity.  Students have to match the picture to the correct CVC word.

This is a rhyming activity where students will match the rhyming picture and/or words and then record them on their recording sheet.

I have kept it on sale with the old price before the additions, but the price will go up after Sunday!!!  If this is something you are interested in, go snag it up now before the price increase. Click {HERE} to go and check it out!!!!

If you would like to WIN this packet, leave me a comment with your email below and I will pick a winner during the halftime of the Super Bowl!!!  You must follow my blog and TPT store to win!!

Free Doubles Plus One Activity plus winner!!!

Steph Neuman, you are the winner of my Valentine craft project, check your email for the goodie.  Thanks so much for participating to each of you.  I would love to give it away to all of you, but if you keep reading, I will try to make up for it!!

Pretty sure I have the Sunday night, winter break is over BLUES!!!  I had intentions of getting oh so much more done, but that didn't happen!  Is it too early to start thinking about SUMMER!! Ha, just kidding, no I'm not!!!

January is not a fun month in my opinion, I get winter depression, if there is such a thing, so I have been fast forwarding to February and Valentine's Day.  That seems to brighten the cold winter days a bit.  So I created a quick little activity for your kiddos to practice their Doubles Plus 1 strategy.  This is always such a tough concept for my little ones to understand, and the best part is I put it up in my little TpT store for FREE!!!  You can go grab it {HERE}! 

Here's what's included, you can click on any of the pictures to go and get it!!
