Ready2Read Level 1 Unit 2

We officially finished Ready2Read Level 1 Unit 2! We are worked through the units very slowly, enjoying each moment!  The hands-on and interactive approach really makes the journey FUN for both of us!  If you are new to the Ready2Read program, you can see the information page {HERE}.

In this post you will see Ready2Read Level 1 Unit 2 in action! Not all of the printables are shown, but enough to give you a general idea of how the unit works.  You can see Unit 1 in action {HERE}.

Unit 2 Sight Words: can, you, look, up, is
Unit 2 Word Families: -ip and -ig
*Detailed Daily Lesson Plans Included!
You can get Unit 2 HERE or grab the BUNDLE and save 20%!

Our Color by Word family page was FUN!  Kids love to color and this really meets that need! 
Sounding out each word on the page takes a little effort...
I think I got it!
She realized that she made a mistake on one of the words, but she quickly corrected it...

She was SO proud of her ability to color and read ALL of those words!
The little mini readers are great for practicing the word families and sights from the unit...
This little Moffatt Girl really gets into coloring the mini-book!  

We practice reading these little books over and over again!  This is so important and such a confidence builder!
Dot the correct word! It is always more FUN with Bingo Dabbers!

Decorating our sight words is always a favorite activity!  Squeezing those glue bottles are so good for building fine muscles needed for writing…
"Oh…I think I am going to do polka dots and glitter!"
Bring on the messy glitter!
**Glitter Tip**
If you rub a fabric dryer sheet (like Bounce) on the table BEFORE you use the glitter, it makes it so it doesn't stick!  
There are so many different ways to decorate your sight words.  We have used popcorn, stickers, beans, and cake decorations.  It really makes it FUN and interactive!

Coloring the sight words caterpillar pieces, which will be added to our Ready2Read wall!

Read it, Trace it, Paste it pages provide an opportunity to use the sight words and word families in a complete sentence.
Cutting, which is another important fine motor skill...
Pasting in the correct order….

Tracing the words...
This was a HUGE success!  Most kids LOVE ice cream and this unit allows kids to build a word family ice cream cone for the -ig and -ip families.
We did this activity reveal times!
Total concentration as she sounds out each word on the ice cream scoop...



She was eager to see which ice cream cone would have the most scoops on it...

Eight scoops for each word family.  "Again, again!" she cried!
I think she really liked this activity ;)

Stamping up sight words is always so much fun and a little messy ;)
Letter by letter, it really helps kids learn to SPELL sight words...

Even the oldest Moffatt Girl helped her sister find the letters needed to help stamp her words...
Bingo Dabbers again!  First you turn over a card and read the word.  Then you find the word on the page and color or "dab" the word.
She really likes this activity.  So simple, but so much fun!
Read it, find it, dab it!
Keeping it FUN!
She wanted to make sure that she was dabbing the correct word!
 She read it two times before dabbing the word...
One word at a time, building CONFIDENCE and FLUENCY!
I like to put our word family cards in a pocket chart.  This allows us to revisit and reread the words.  I also have her throw a crumbled up piece of paper at the chart.  Whatever she hits, she reads.  If she reads it correctly, she keeps it.  Learning to read becomes a GAME!
Picture Word Match!  We play this "game" a few times because it is so much fun!

Here is the -ig family spider, which will be added to our Ready2Read wall.  
We practice reading all of the words before we add it to the wall and we also practice after they are on the wall.
She was so happy to add another word family flower to her garden!
Reading the words on the flower...

Word and Picture Match with the -ig family words...

Singing our sight words to the tune of B-I-N-G-O…
The Color by Sight Word Page is always a huge hit!

 She wanted me to print ANOTHER one! Melt my Mommy heart!
 She is trying SO hard to print her sight words correctly!  I LOVE that she is proud of herself!
 Word Slides for the -ip Family…

 She cracked me up when she said, "These are like elevators for words!"
 Word Slides for the -ig family...
Our Ready2Read Wall and her Reading Certificate for Unit 2!

Word Family Sorting Popsicle Sticks!
This is not in our Ready2Read program, but just an additional way to work with words.
 I just wrote the 2 word families on the craft sticks and had her sort them...
 So simple, yet so fun and effective!
 In my humble opinion…
This is learning at its best!

We also pulled out the play dough and stamped our sight words for this week…
Our Sight Word Tablets are always a fun way to reinforce the sight words and practice identifying words in a variety of printed and published styles…

I LOVE what Jamie wrote about our Ready2Read program: 
I started using Level 1 this year and love it! Since beginning 2 weeks ago, four of my lowest kids have gained 20 sight words and moved up reading levels.  This is more progress than they have made all year.  My kindergarten colleagues were so impressed, they are wanting to get it for their struggling students too. "

Annie, everything about you and your family is amazing!!! Sophia is adorable and such a smartie! I love how she's holding onto her pooh bear! You should put a tree up in the word garden and then you can see how Sophia grows as she finishes each unit!!

I am a first year teacher in Australia and teach second grade. I have a little boy with ASD and a girl who was still at a kindergarten reading level. We are up to unit 8 in Level 1 and this product is nothing short of brilliant! The confidence my students have makes me cry with happiness every day! They are now up to PM benchmarks which I wouldn't have believed possible at the start of the year. They absolutely LOVE the activities especially the little reader books. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me the tools to change these children's lives. THANK YOU!

Your little Sophia has such great facial expressions. I'm sure it's so much fun to read back through you blog over the past couple of years and see how much your girls have grown, both physically and academically!
