Books & Brackets Blog Book Hop

March is HERE and that means two things: 1) that March Madness and 2) SPRING are just around the corner! I have always loved the game of basketball, especially our local NBA team, the Sacramento Kings! And I really love springtime too!

Spring makes me think of gardening and animals-especially farm animals. Think SHEEP!! No, not counting sheep. a Jeep!

One of the best ways to teach phonological awareness skills, is through the use of BOOKS!

Children love to learn new skills, especially if those skills can be addressed by engaging them with a story. You can use the materials in the FREEBIE included for teaching these skills. My packet is based on the wonderful book, Sheep in a Jeep, by Nancy Shaw. 

Many of you will recognize this book and you have probably read it many times with your students. The materials I made contain characters and words from the story. The following skills are addressed: Phoneme Blending, Phoneme Manipulation, Segmentation, Rhyming, CVC word recognition Do-A-Dots and MORE!

Click below to get your FREEBIE! Your students will enjoy the tasks while they are learning new skills.
