Ready2Read Level 1: Unit 5

Our Ready2Read programs are progressing nicely and I am pleased to see how much Audrey has grown!  Her reading foundation is getting stronger and stronger as we move forward with each unit.

If you are new to the Ready2Read program, check out the information page {HERE}.

*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.  

Sight Words: find, one, yellow, little, it
Word Families: -ap, -ad
Theme: Word Family Garden
Once again we started the unit with our color-by-number flashcards...

We sang our sight word song to the tune of B-I-N-G-O

We now have 25 sight words to make sentences out of...WOW!!

Our sight word caterpillar is really growing!!  25 sight words long!!

We had tons of fun decorating the sight words this week!  We used glitter, jewels, and stickers:)  There are so many creative ways to make learning fun and interactive.  

Audrey colored her Word Family Coloring Page...a soccer ball!

The Color-by-Sight Word coloring page was also a huge hit!  This has really proven to be a great resource for reinforcing sight word recognition.
Sight word tracing...

Read it, Trace it, Paste it pages..  This week we used the bingo markers, which made it lots of FUN!

Once again Audrey worked on her CVC boxes.  We did not use the tiles even though I included them in the PDF.  She really likes to sound out the letters and write them in the boxes.

Crack the Sight Word code...always a popular one!

Circle the correct CVC word...

Cutting, assembling and reading her -ap and -ad family minibooks...
 -ap family 
 -ad family
 -ad family

The Word Family Sort is always fun.  This week we worked with TRAINS!!  I must say, Sophia (21 months) was completely intrigued!!  Audrey said that this was her favorite activity:)

We used the word slides and then Audrey wrote down the new words she created...

The CVC picture match proved to be a neat opportunity to expand her vocabulary.  For example, some of the printables identify the word tap as tap dancing.  However, in this activity the word tap refers to a faucet or spicket.  

Two new word family flowers were added to our garden:)

Here is an overall look at our Ready2Read Wall after finishing Unit 5!

Great Activities. We just started working on sight words so I will use some of these ideas. I am also a former teacher turned stay at home mommy. I love teaching my girls at home. You have some great ideas. I am now following your blog. Please come visit me at

Thank you so much for having these as a free download. These are going to come in handy when I start my second year of Pre-K this August. I've never seen anything that teaches sight words in Pre-K and I couldn't be more excited! Thank you so much!

We are loving the R2R program! My 4 y/o is doing really well with it - although it is taking us longer than a week as we seem to be taking a week off every other week :(

I have tried twice to get to the download for Unit 5 and each time I'm getting virus warnings so I haven't been able to get it. Thought you might want a heads up.

thanks for unit 5! i also had a virus warning the first time i tried to download but was able to download the second time. when i try to download the lesson plans it brings up unit 1 though..

Annie Moffatt said...

Aww...thanks for the heads up. I am considering changing to google docs or something else. So sorry about the wrong lesson plans...oops! I think I was tired! I just fixed it! Thank for telling me:)

Thanks for linking up. You have amazing ideas. I found them a couple of weeks ago and have already started planning for my four year old son to use them.
