Ready2Read Level 1: Unit 1

I am THRILLED to finally be able to launch the Ready2Read program!  This has taken me a long time to put together and test.  It is finally here and I am EXCITED!

Head on over to the Information Page to learn more about the Ready2Read program!

*Note: As of 11/7/2012, Level 1 has been completely reworked and revised.  Here is the NEW and IMPROVED version!  This blogpost will be a bit different from the upgraded printables, but contains the same content.  Lesson plans are included!



Sight Words: I, see, the, and, a
Word Families: -at, -an
Theme: Word Family Garden

We started off with our color by number flashcards.  
Laminated, cut out and practiced...

We made a new sight word caterpillar.  I like this one better than my original, because Audrey has ownership in the what she learns.  Not a Mommy made project, but an Audrey made project:)
Sight Word Caterpillar colored, laminated and learned!!

We sang our sight words to the tune of B-I-N-G-O.  We used a cookie sheet and magnets on the back of the words. Audrey really enjoyed putting up the words and Sophia loved singing along!

I called these cherrio mats, but they turned into bean and cake decorating mats!  This was one of Audrey's favorites and it was so much FUN!!  

 
What a FUN way to learn sight words!!  The only problem I had was trying to keep her from eating all of the cake decorations;)
We have 5 Read it, Trace it, Paste it sheets that work ONLY with the 5 new sight words and the 2 new word families learned this week.

Audrey read her -an and -at family minibooks. 

Color by sight word coloring page...

Coloring her color by word family apple tree...

We starting "planting" our word family garden.  I laminated some green construction paper, roughly cut it up and made "grass."  



Sorting the -an and -at family apples...

Circling the correct CVC word...

Crack the sight word code page.  Audrey really enjoyed this activity!  At first she wasn't sure how to do it, but she caught on quickly and didn't want any help from me!

Matching the correct CVC (-at and -an family words) to the correct picture. 

Working with -at and -an family word slides

CVC Boxes-build a word to match the picture.
Build the word and paste the letters into the boxes.  You can also write the letters in the boxes with a dry erase maker if you laminate the pictures.

I have just started making and gathering resources for my daughter as we embark on the learning to read adventure. I am so grateful to have stumbled across your blog and am printing off your fabulous pack as I type this comment. Thank you so much for generously sharing all of your hard work. As a former teacher, I can imagine the enormous amount of time that has gone into creating this.

We will be using this here in Australia - so it's gone global:) I'll be sure to post back to your linky.

I am your newest follower.

Wow! what a great program. Seeing all the pictures really makes it come to life. I wish I would have had this when my 4 kiddos were learning to read. I hope you have lots of people use this.

I personally think you should charge for this sometime in the future. :)

Stephanie Mielke said...

I just found your site...I love all the ideas...just curious if I am missing something...do you have a place where you got all your printables..or did you make them yourself? :) I am super excited...my little girl is turning 4 in the fall and is loving reading...this will be great!

Thanks

Annie Moffatt said...

Hi Stephanie!
Yes, I make all of my own printables, unless mentioned in the post.

Jenni R. said...

Hi--found you from Shining Lights blog. Yeah for more great printables! Thanks so much!!!

Annette W. said...

I saw your link at two different blogs today!!

Did you create the sight word caterpillar or did you find it? I would love to do that with my daughter!!

Thanks!

Annie Moffatt said...

Hi Annette!
The sight word caterpillar is my creation. I started with making a simple sight word caterpillar out of circles that I cut out. Now I use it in my Ready2Read curriculum that I am still in the process of creating:)

Jillybean said...

Thank you so much for all of your hard work and for sharing! My Lamb is desperate to actually 'read'. We've been using the Montessori phonetic programme and phonetic words are great but he wants to read sentences. You've given me the perfect way to introduce sight words to a little boy not yet four!

Sarah Stoll said...

Thanks for sharing! I downloaded it and can definitely see using some of the activities with our school's curriculum.

rufannmama said...

I am interested in purchasing all 8 units, but I am curious, does each unit come with a lesson plan? I didn't see it listed with the contents. Looks like lots of fun!

Annie Moffatt said...

Yes, each unit comes with a lesson plan. These units allow you to teach the lessons with very little effort. Just print the units, laminate and cut the appropriate materials and teach them:)

Lindsey said...

So cute! I was going to link to this in a post (schedule 9/18) and I was wondering if I could use a picture from your post (with a caption linking back to your site). Thanks!!

I took a look at it and I can't wait to use it!! I will be sure to follow up soon to let you know how it all goes!

Thanks!!

I teach Kindergarten and would love to have the "Cherrio Mats" for when we learn our Sight Words, and I could put these in centers as well. How do I go about getting those?
Thanks,
