Mastering Multiplication!

Mastering multiplication facts is such an important skill for 3rd grade students.  As a former 4th grade teacher, I fully understand how crippling it can be for students who struggle with basic multiplication facts while trying to learn more challenging math concepts. If they can master the basics, all other math concepts are so much easier to learn.

I am beyond excited to share with you a Multiplication Bundle that will introduce, teach, reinforce and help master basic multiplication facts!  All of the pages in this bundle make learning multiplication a breeze! No more boring drills or mundane practice! There are 11 different packets in this bundle that will help make mastering multiplication facts exciting and rewarding!

Teaching Digraphs

Are you ready to conquer DIGRAPHS?

Once a child masters CVC Words it is time to move on to more complex word structures.
Digraphs are a great place to start. 

What is a digraph?
A digraph is a single sound (phoneme) that can be represented with two letters. 
A consonant digraph joins two consonants together to make one sound.  

We are ready for digraphs! I decided to create some fun, hands-on, engaging and a cohesive sets of printables that would help teach the sh, th, ch, wh, ph and ck digraphs. These packets are found in our Digraph Bundle {HERE}.

Learning is at its BEST when it becomes a game!
Chunking words can help students separate the sounds. In this activity, students will trace the word, separate and write the sounds, and then write the word. This will helps students learn out to sound out and spell words, focusing on words with beginning and ending digraphs.

How to Teach CVC Word Families!

Hearing a child learn to read for the first times is one of the greatest joys for parents, teachers and kids! There is nothing like it!  After children learn their letter sounds, the next step is CVC word.  I wanted to share some teaching methods that have worked for me in my teaching career and with my own children.

First of all, beginning/struggling readers need activities that are  FUN, hands-on and engaging.  Kids learn better when they are having FUN! When learning becomes a GAME, kids enjoy the process. No more tears, no more crying, no more boring worksheets! I have created our CVC Fluency Bundle to help beginning/struggling readers succeed with tons of hands-on and fun resources!

In addition to fun, hands-on and engaging resources, kids need repetition.  However, repeated practice doesn't need to be boring!  You don't need to practice the same skill in the same way again and again. Kids need VARIETY.  This CVC Fluency Bundle includes 12 packets to help teach common word families in a variety of ways! 
The packets are progressive in skill. The first packet in the series begins with isolating sounds (beginning, medial and final sounds) in simple CVC word family words. 

Definition of CVC Words: 
Three letter words that have a consonant at the beginning, a consonant at the end and a short vowel in the middle. 
Examples of CVC words:
 cat, dog, bat, nut, him, ran, big, red, map

Examples of three letter words that are NOT CVC words:
the, she, out, you

Each of the following packets are sold individually, 
or you can grab the BUNDLE and save 20%!
