Letters, Blends, Digraphs & More: 78 Printable Cards

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. It is rainy here in northern Florida sooooooo...I have been cooped up in the house creating things to use for this upcoming school year.

I made a set of 78 printable picture cards that include all 26 letters of the alphabet, blends, digraphs and other letter combinations. Each day in my Kindergarten class we go over all of the letters of the alphabet and their corresponding sounds. After these are mastered we start learning blends, digraphs and many other common letter combinations. 

I have a chart I use in my class to go over letter combinations, but I decided to make these printable cards to use in whole group, small group and to display the most common ones on a focus wall in my classroom. If you would like to check these printable cards out click on any of the pictures below, this will take you to my Teachers Notebook store.

I am offering a set of these 78 printable cards to the first five people that meet the following criteria:
 1. Follow me :)

 Have a happy Tuesday everyone!

Mini Writing Offices are Back!

Last summer, I created a mini writing office for my kindergarteners to use during independent writing time. These mini offices are a great resource and aid in students writing success. I have spruced up the mini writing office since last summer and have now made writing mini offices for advanced Kindergarten, First grade,  Second grade and Third grade.

These mini writing offices are small enough to fit into a pencil sized school box. Included in each pack are 21 cover options, dimensions of the writing folder, two sets of writer's toolbox labels, and all the files needed to make each mini office.

I store my students mini offices in pencil boxes in which we call our "Writer's Toolbox". In addition to our writing mini office, we store our writing pencil (any pencil that has a design on it- They love these and take well care of these "special" writing pencils), eraser, Mr. Spaceman (spacing stick from Really Good Stuff), post it notes, and mini dry erase marker and eraser.

Check these mini writing offices out at my Teacher's Notebook or TPT store.

P.S. The first 5 people to blog about the mini writing offices on their blog with a link back to my blog will receive one free copy of a mini office of their choice. Be sure to email dmastand@hotmail.com after doing so and please leave a comment. :)
