The "-eat" Chunk!!

Okay, so I've been feeling creative is another activity to do for the -eat chunk spelling pattern!!
-eat chunk
Have the student color the "treat" bag sheet and cut along the zigzag underneath the Halloween kitten.  Attach a plastic baggie with a staple on each side for the safe keeping of the "-eat" cards.

 They will be able to use these words to read to their friends, parents and siblings in an effort to become more familiar with the -eat chunk. Enjoy!!

It's all about the "_ay" Chunk!!!

This week on our Chunk Wall, we will be adding two new spelling pattern chunks.  One of them will be the "_ay" chunk!!!

Here is the Symbol Chart and Product Sheet

"Firsties" First Field Trip

In honor of the play, Charlotte's Web, that we will be seeing this week on our field trip, I am downloading my 
 I have been reading Charlotte's Web to my students for a couple of weeks now and should be finished with the book before we go on our field trip this week.  It will be fun to compare and contrast the play and the book when we get back.  I'm anxious to see their faces during the show!!! They are already very attached to the characters in the book and for them to get to see them in a different genre will be exciting!!! 
The game directions are listed on the game sheet. Enjoy!!

PS...check back for future card games with different themes....More to come!!!
