Ready2Read Level 3 Unit 2

We have just finished up Unit 2 of our Ready2Read program and we are fully enjoying it!  There are so many different activities in this unit and it really makes learning so much fun!  I captured a lot of the activities from this unit, but not all of them.  This little Moffatt Girls loves to learn how to read and I know it is because her reading is hands-on and FUN!

*If you are new to the Ready2Read program, you can see the information page for Level 1 {HERE}.  This is a sequential reading program and it is recommended that children start with Level 1.

Level 3 Theme: Ocean Theme
Unit 2 Sight Words: her, him, put, an
Unit 2 Word Families: -eep and -eat
Long Vowels: ee and ea

Who doesn't love to stamp a word family?  This definitely takes the boring out of learning!  As children look for the letters that make up each word, they are practicing spelling patterns and seeing how vowel teams, digraphs and blends work together.  It is a whole brain activity. 
The game board is a fast paced activity that helps to make fluency fun.
The sight word word search not only focuses on sight words from unit 3, but also revisits sight words from both Level 1 and Level 2.  I strongly believe that reviewing concepts is a key component to confidence and success, so why not make it FUN

For the Sight Word Match and Sight Word Spelling, I always have Audrey fold the paper in half so that she can't see what is on the other side.  This is simple and a quick assessment of her progress.
The Word Family Detective takes place on two different days and this one is a lot of fun!  There are 10 very tiny word family words hidden in the picture and you use a magnifying glass to find the words.  You can imagine how much fin this is for kids!  After finding the word family word, they write it on their recording sheet.  Another way to practice and see patterns in word families.  

This activity is completely hands-on and requires reading the 1st grade sight word, tracing it, stamping it and cutting and pasting it.  So much hands-on learning in one page!
Read and Write the Room is an absolute FAVORITE!  This activity actually lasts 2 days for each word family and we still can't get enough!  I hide the words around the room and Audrey is required to search for them and match the picture to the correct word and write it on the line.  SO. MUCH. FUN!!
Build a Lunch was a BLAST! In fact, we did this activity several times because it is so cute!  

Adorable and fun -eep word family word slides.  Slide, read and write.
-eat Word Family Word Slides

Tic-Tac-Toe Sight Words!  We play this game several times and this little girl LOVES to win!
So cute and so fun!  Sight Word headbands!

Sight Word Make-a-Match

A fun fast paced game of Roll, Read and Color!

This is perfect for "seeing" the letter patterns and it does require a little brain power.

I LOVE our Word Family Graphing because it incorporates so many different skills.  It allows for graphing skills, word identification in various fonts and of course writing the word.

Roll, Trace and Check it Off!  Just another way to master those sight words!

Sight Word Decorating!  This time we used glitter glue dots and cupcake decorations. 

Missing Letters

Spin and Graph a Word Family.  Instead of coloring the boxes, I had Audrey write the word.  This activity/game is so fast paced and fun, that it takes the drudgery out of simply writing the words.  Learning becomes a game!
Color by Sight Word...always a favorite!
Sight Word Success
Working on a quick ABC order and Perfect Printing Practice!

Clap the Syllables
Another Common Core Foundational Skills Requirement

Sight Word Stars
These cute little color by number sight word stars will be part of our Ocean Theme Wall!  

The Sight Word Stars have been laminated, cut out and added to our wall!  GREAT for reinforcement and a FUN word wall!

Sight Word Mini Books!
Reading and reinforcing sight words in context.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE our Word Family Word Octopus!  Our Ocean Themed Word Wall is turning out SO cute and it really makes learning FUN!
Vowel Team Posters!
LOVE these!  We just added the ea and ee teams!

The lesson plans are ready to go for each unit!
Our Ocean Wall is growing with sight word starfish, word family octopus and word family turtles!
Ready2Read Certificate!

Here are a few supplemental resources that we used for unit 2.  These are NOT included in  Ready2Read Level 3.

We are LOVING our Sight Word Texting Codes for 1st Grade!  I used the blank recording sheet included in the pack and all of the sight words for unit 2 and a couple of other sight words from Level 2.

We also added our Sight Word Money to our sight word wallet!

That wraps it up for Level 3 Unit 2!
