Each of these packets has an intervention with four levels of difficulty for each subject. I have also included practice sheets that can be used for homework or during math center. I added the money poems to TPT for free.

I made these posters last summer and they have worked like a charm! Identifying coins is one of my teams GVCs. (Guaranteed Viable Curriculum) I have included little tricks for identifying the coins. For example, the Lincoln Memorial has a flat roof like a one, so the value is 1 cent.

This is a book for writing about animals. It contains 40 animals, with an animal for each letter of the alphabet and a few extras. Each page has a visual of how to draw the animal. It also contains a word bank with words about the animal's habitat, characteristics, and descriptive words. I use once a week and show a video or read a book about the animal. I model for the students how to draw the animal. Even if you aren't very artistic, you can draw these animals. It is my favorite writing activity!

Last year while teaching first grade, I noticed my students weren't progressing very well when it came to sight words. I have always thought just practicing a list was pretty boring and super hard for second language learners. So I wrote their words on index cards and then wrote a sentence underneath the word. It was amazing how quick they could learn the word while it was embedded in print. I did it around February. I felt like kicking myself for not doing it sooner! I also had the kids read their words before they began Read to Someone and with our 4th Grade Buddies. Then a friend of mine told me she had her students read the three sight words every time they went out the door or came in. So to make life easier, I made a booklet with all the second grade words embedded in print with a poster for 'Your ticket out the door.'
