"Sh" sound for Mrs. Wishy Washy

One of my very favorite books to share with my little readers is Mrs. Wishy Washy. I think it is a great book to use for the "sh" sound with my kindergartners. We got a little creative this time with our "sh" lesson. Here is what we did. We spent a lot of time reading the story and watching how Mrs. Wishy Washy tried to keep the animals away from the mud. After working with the "sh" sound we added a little treat to the end of our lesson.


Here we used some dollar store lights to build some "sh" words and show the students that even though there might be 4 letters in the words we will only hear 3 sounds. If you notice I use the star and two circles...I do this because some of my little learners struggle with where to begin their words. They forget or do not know which is their left or right so I use the star as an indicator to help them remember how we start a word. Next, we took a little scavenger hunt around the room looking for the "sh" sound and blending it to make words with our cute little cupcakes...stay tuned for a freebie. :) We were told that Mrs. Wishy Washy left us a treat for helping her find the animals and trying to keep them clean. These were not real cupcakes of course but ones where we needed to build "sh" words. The kids had a blast wondering around the room looking for words. Once they found their words they brought them back to the table and began building their 'sh' words .

Spring has Sprung.....well I hope so!


I am hoping that Spring has sprung for us anyway. We have had more snow than I care to deal with...that is for sure. With the recent time change it always excites me because I know we are just one more step closer to getting to Spring. Can you tell it is my favorite season. :) Well I am adding some more fun to your classroom with this CVC packet I just finished.


It is part of a new print n go series I am starting where you can just print them and go. This is what I am doing with my kiddos with this packet. First , I print out all of the pages for a master copy. Then I head on down to my copy machine ...seems like I live there sometimes...and make a selection to run them one sided to two sided. This not only saves paper it will also help when I put it in the 3 prong notebooks or binders or whatever the kiddos have to use so we can do our work work.

So the kiddos sound out the words and place it in the boxes and then turn their papers over and they pick two pictures from the front to write a sentence about or if they struggle with writing about two pictures they can write one sentence or two sentences about one picture. It all depends on my little learners.

The first 3 people who leave me a comment along with their email will get this packet for free for being such a great blog follower. I love my followers! :)
