Name Puzzles and a Linkback Fall Post

This year we are implementing the Fountas and Pinnell Phonics Program for the first time.  I am really enjoying this program although there is quite a bit of prep work to be done.  I spend so much time prepping the materials for the lessons that I want to make them last and give the children opportunities to practice the skills that they are learning.

This week we worked on a name puzzles activity.  It really is a very simple activity.

I made a little worksheet for them to do in workstations this week.  It is a freebie for you!

Today we also did a Fall leaves activity that I did last year!  It was just that good that I decided to do it again!  Go check it out!

  3. We did the name puzzles last year and it was very popular with the kids. I like the sheet you made to go with it:)
