For some unknown reason our firsties are having a hard time with digraphs this year.
Our speech teacher came to our team meeting and said that a lot of them didn't pass their digraphs on the speech test. So we've been working HARD on them! 
Just thought I'd share some of the things we are doing.
This is a packet I created last year and we've been working hard at it the past few weeks.
I also put together a little scoot game that I just uploaded to my shops. (check it out at my shops on the side bar)
And here is a little FREEBIE from the packet.
It can be used as a practice sheet or assessment.
Check HERE to download a FREE copy.

I'll be doing another assessment this week to see how they are doing. I hope they have finally mastered it.

Problem and Solution FREEBIE

It looks like I have been neglecting my blog for a little while. I've been very involved in life for the past month and blogging has not been on top of the list. So sorry.

I'm teaching Problem and Solution this week and just made a little practice sheet to go along with my Smartboard slides. I hope you can use it in your classroom.

I also finished reading one of the best books I've read in a looong time.  'Crash Course' by Kim Bearden is very inspiring. It's not just for teachers. A lot of blogger recommended it this past summer when it was released. So I thought I'd give it a read. Boy am I glad I did. I loved the format with 'Class Notes' and 'Homework'. It will make you want to be a better teacher as well as a better human being. I'd sure LOVE to visit the RCA and see Kim in action.  

Well, thanks for stopping by. I'll try not to be a stranger and post more often.
Have a great week!
