Make Your Masterpiece: TPT Seller Challenge Week Three

Oh, my! This week's seller's challenge was just perfect timing as I have finally been motivated to create the "masterpiece" I've had spinning in the back of my mind for the past two years.  My sweet Miss Elliotte is four and super, super interested in learning to read and write, so she and I have been doing some preschool activities at home this summer. Now that she's old enough, I've been wanting to introduce her to some sight words, but I wanted to do so in a fun and exciting way that I knew would keep her attention. Which is not always easy to do, haha! I've been planning on creating a sight word and phonics curriculum to use with my struggling firsties for a while now, and Ellie is proving to be the perfect test audience!

Hence, here is the first edition my my newest unit, Soar into Reading: Preprimer Sight Words...

Here is are some pictures of my sweet Ellie doing the Read&Write and Trace&Build activities. She was really excited to get to do a little cutting and gluing, and also sooo proud to show me her neat handwriting as she wrote her new words! 




I had been making this unit as she and I worked together, but I finally bit the bullet and completed the whole thing! Ellie has a few weeks left before she earns her Superhero Masks and Cuffs featuring the words in the Preprimer list, but she's been really enjoying collecting her new words on her Superhero Word Ring!

I cannot wait to reassess her to see how she does in the next few weeks...Momma's going to have to get started on the next word list soon...oh, and Soar into Reading: Short Vowel Word Families is in the works as well!

If you'd like to check out this unit at my TPT store, I'd really appreciate your feedback! So far, Miss Ellie and I are enjoying it, and I'm excited to share it with my new firsties in a few months!
