The Fantastic Freebie Frenzy…

…continues!  Hi, Friends! How are ya?

Me?  I’m making it.  I’m in between appointments right now, but didn’t want to leave you without a fantastic freebie for today.  You may remember this little packet of goodies.

BOY Literacy Activities Preview

It’s my Beginning of the Year Literacy Activities packet.  You can even read a review about it here! As a thank you for following my little bloggity blog, I pulled one of the activities just for YOU!


It’s important for firsties to be able to change and manipulate sounds in order to read words.  For some of them, its very helpful if you can turn this type of activity into game play. You know us teachers, have to be really sneaky to get all of those all important skills in without it being blatantly “taught”.  Students learn most when they’re having fun!


After you’ve introduced this skill and practiced it some, place this activity in a work station for extended practice.  The directions for how to play the game are included.

There are two pages of words to use in game play.  This type of  game can be differentiated for different letter combinations, such as glued sounds, blends, word families…etc. I’m currently working on some more to add to the little TPT shop!  This one was made with the beginning of the year in mind to practice CVC words.


The reflection sheet is designed to be printed double sided.  When you open the GoogleDoc, you’ll see both pages. 

I hope you’re able to make use of this goodie and will check out the larger packet for which it is a part of.  The entire packet sells for $5.00 and I’ve received positive feedback from those who have purchased it thus far!

Comment below and let me know what you think!  I’ve gotta run! I got the official word last night that my beloved car is headed to Honda Heaven so this girl has got to get busy finding herself another means of transportation!

Don’t forget to grab your freebie! It’s hiding behind the pumpkin! =) Catcha later! Give a hug, ladybug!

  2. So many of my students' reading struggles are based on both their yet-to-be-developed phonemic awareness skills and then the ability to manipulate sounds. I have only found 2 activities that I love using to provide practice with these skills. Now I have another a third - fantastic! THANKS!!

  3. Tanya, you are awesome!! Thanks for the adorable freebie! My students will get a lot of use out of it. :)
