In January we will dive into reading, writing, and spelling long vowel words. We will begin with "Open Vowel Words" That unit is included in my Happy New Year unit. After that we will work on using the infamous Silent E. Last year we used the fun "Sneaky E" puppets and the kids looooved them. This year I will introduce the Silent E Gang : Sneaky E, Sparkly E, and Magic E. All are guaranteed to help kids stay engaged and have fun while learning about that important silent e on the ends of words. I put together a little packet to keep me organized, and I can't wait to do all this with my kiddos! I hope you will find them useful. The packet includes, chants, paper bag puppet patterns, stick puppet patterns for each of the gang members, and about 28 pages of short vowel words, some conventional and some nonsense for kids to practice and write.
Here are a few pics of the unit.
|Cut out and make stick puppets for "Add an E game included in unit.|

Hope you're having a great week!! I'm off to work on report cards! And something for our Teacher Inservice day on Monday (Thanks for the reminder, Tracy!!)
Talk to you all soon!!
Thank you so much Nancy for your generosity!!ReplyDelete
I love your blog! Thank you for sharing your ideas with the rest of us! We did your "life size fact families" today and my kids LOVED it! I just changed the Santa hats to party hats to go along with the New Year theme! Thanks Again, JenReplyDelete
You are AMAZING Nancy! Thank you so much for sharing your incredible creativity with us....but most of all, THANK YOU for sharing your beautiful heart.ReplyDelete
I will treasure the sweet words you recently left on my blog forever. You are such a blessing. =)
I hope one day to meet you in person. =)
Blessings and hugs,
You are so amazing to share all of your creativity with us! This is such a smart idea to "bundle" all of these "e" characters together, so the kids are familiar with all of the terms. Super cute! Thank you!!!ReplyDelete
Love this. I can't wait to put this in a center for my kiddos. Thank you!ReplyDelete
I adore your blog. I have used so many of your units in my classroom. They are some of my kid's favorites. I am amazed at your talent in putting together units that are comprehensive and practical...and might I add....free! What a blessing you are to teachers young and old looking for great resources. I look forward to your blog each day. Thank you!!!ReplyDelete

I just came upon this post....this is exactly what I've been looking for and you were generous enough to share your work! I so appreciate you sharing your hard work with me...it is so greatly appreciated. I love these ideas...do you usually just stick with one, have them use them all, or let them choose which one they'd like to make? I SO appreciate you sharing this that I'd like to give back to you someway if you would like. Feel free to go to my TpT store and pick whatever you would like (price doesn't matter in the least)! I would love to give you a product for sharing yours with me....if there's anything you would want. So feel free to email me the product you would like to try and include your email so I can send you the file. I hope you find something that is helpful to you as this is to me. Thank you again...and I look forward to hearing from you :)ReplyDelete
