Sounds for Y

Sounds for Y Activity
Here are some ideas to teach the sounds for Y!

I created this activity for my students to match the word with the picture. 

Then they recorded their words:

They also did several word sorts:

To end the week the students completed a Word Detective Search.  Where they searched for Y words in the books we read.

You can purchase the mat and pictures above at TPT.

I will give away a free copy to the first person to comment!!

My Treasure Chest of Words

Vocabulary/ Sight Word Practice Idea
First, I had my students write their words on cut out shapes. 
Next, they glued them in to their treasure chest. 
Then they practiced writing the words in sentences. 

They loved it!!  It is a great way for them to apply their sight word knowledge!

Plant Art Activity

Plant ART activity

I found these great foam flowers at AC Moore several years ago.  My students created a 3D flower picture with the foam petals, yard roots, and sun rays.  Then they labeled the parts.

Herb's Trip to the Park Unit - A unit that teachers -er, -ir, and -ur

I am excited to announce that I have uploaded my first unit to TPT!
This unit includes:
A nine page story about Herb’s Trip to the Theme Park

I was inspirited to write this story to help my students read: er, ur, and ir words

An activity to go along with the book: Word Search or Read the Room.  At my school we actually put the word cards in the hall and the students go out in the hall to read the words.  It includes 18 cards to practice these sounds and a recording sheet for the students to record those words.
It also includes a Visual Poster to remind students of the three sounds.
