Are your kiddos bananas over Pete the Cat? Then I think they'll like this puzzle game which comes in black and white so students can make their own, as well as one in color to use as an independent math center.
The latest Pete the Cat book features the popular "5 Little Pumpkins" poem, so I designed this "trace the numbers" and "color the pumpkins" that are "rolling out of sight" on a skateboard worksheet.
Here's a no-mess hand print craft that's sure to become a keepsake, with the added bonus that it helps kiddos sequence & retell Pete the Cat's "I Love My White Shoes" story.
"Elmer" by David McKee is a wonderful story about the importance and beauty of diversity. It's one of my students' favorite back to school books.

When you're deciding what Dolch words your students will work on, you may want to take into consideration their frequency of use. I've included 2 Dolch word lists in this packet. One lists the order of frequency for each separate Dolch word list (pre primer-3rd grade). The other list, categorizes all of the words, from all of the lists, by order of frequency.
Here's a fairy tale that uses all 220 words from the 5 Dolch sight word lists. What a fun way for children to practice! The author is unknown. I've included a color-coded key, so you can see which words came from which lists.
Practice a variety of word work with The Very Hungry Wordapillar. I've included patterns, an at word family sample, plus a list of ideas of word categories to make caterpillars for. Children can design their own caterpillar head, color my template, or simply add wiggle eyes and a smile to a colorful circle of construction paper.
