Letters, Words, and Sentences....Oh My!

Jul 24, 2013

Last year we found that our firsties really needed to practice the difference between a letter, word, and sentence.  Some of them just did not quite know the difference.  So I made up a Powerpoint to help them along and after a little bit of good (Maria) teaching, they had it!  I was looking back at that Powerpoint (almost a year later now) and realized...oh my!...it is ugly.  So I spruced it up and...voila!

So...of course...that led to more.  I decided a sort would go so well with this Powerpoint.  I created a letter, word, and sentence sort to correspond to this Powerpoint (or could be used alone).
 I am super excited about the way that both of these products look.  I can't wait to see them in action. If you would like them, just click on the images above.  BUT...I will give them to the first two people that comment on this post.

Oh!  And don't forget our 14 winner giveaway ends tomorrow night!!! Click below if you have not entered yet.

  5. I would so very much love to have a copy, please please!!!!
    It would certainly go a long way in my classroom.

    Thanks in advance.


  6. Will be going on my ever-growing TPT wish list! :) Thanks for the reminder that I should be including this in my back to school plans. I looped to 1st last year, so I knew where my kiddos were at and they didn't need these lessons. Not so with this years class!

  7. So I have been WAY behind on my blog reading, and while catching up today, I realized how many wonderful things I have missed out on! Your freebies are AMAZING! I mentioned a couple of them in today's post! Thanks so much for all of your hard work!

  8. Several of my students struggle with this concept too. A sort is a great way to work on this!
