Number Cards 0-35

Here's my basic set of numbers I've printed out numerous times on assorted colored cardstock (every student can keep track of their own cards/color... and me, too!).
I use these for quick warm-up number sense activities, comparing numbers, addends, etc. I hope you can use them with your students!

Fun Phonemic Awareness Freebie!

Phonemic awareness is the ability to hear and manipulate the sounds of a word.  It is a foundational skill for reading.  Research has shown that students who do not understand that spoken words are made up of separate speech sounds have a great deal of difficulty learning to read.  The Doggie, Where's My Bone? activity is fun game for helping students hear sounds in different word positions.  For this activity, I use a little dog bone (which I purchased at Walmart), but you can use a bingo chip.  Simply say a word and then a sound in the word ("cat" /a/) and the student places the bone either on the head, body or tail to indicate the position of the sound within the word.  For students who are a little more advanced, the Doggie Sound Switch activity is provided.

To download this freebie just click HERE.

This is one of my STAPLES in phonics - I use these with each and every sound/spelling skill we cover. These cards have a word featuring long e (color-coded) and a matching picture. I place a sticky note on top of the picture & have the students decode the word. They can lift the sticky to check if they're right!
