Clip to ScrapBook #2

The routine does take longer than my kids stayed engaged, especially the kids who knew the material. I split it up into short carpet times.

Letter tiles were so time consuming to manage. In beginning of year, I had them just use the tiles we needed for the week. I wrote numbers on back with gold sharpie to store and give out. Stored in small compartment box from craft shop.

After first year, we dropped markings, and used our reading program word list instead of Fundations lists. My admin asked for research to support Fundations letter sounds intro (why long vowels and vowel teams introduced so late in year,) but they couldn’t.

So we ended up using some Fundations activities, word sound cards, letter tiles only in beginning of year. Dictation weekly in pink workbook.

Good luck. Some schools use it completely and love it.
