TPT Sale!!! Save $$$ and my #1 Best Seller

Happy Hump Day! I can't believe it's February. There is good news and bad news today.  The bad news is that I am sick.....AGAIN.  I'm finding I do not get over things as quickly as I once did. What used to last 2 days now lasts 5.  UGH.  Kids have been absent....close to 10% of our student body was out this week.  And they are coming to school sick and getting sent home. Now the silver lining.  Teachers Pay Teachers is having their big sale this week. It ends tonight at midnight. You can STILL get things on your wishlist for up to 28% off right now.  DO NOT FORGET TO USE THE CODE Lovetpt at check out.  (I have done so and it's pretty annoying!)

So I thought I would share my BEST SELLER with you today.  Take a peek!

Out of close to 175 products in my store, this is the best seller.  Let me tell you why I think it is flying out of my store in droves.

When teaching new readers how to read, we often teach them a handful of reading strategies.  One of those such strategies is called "Skippy Scott".  We teach our students to skip over the word, read to the end of the sentence, and then to "think about what would make sense".  This skill is practiced in isolation using this set of clip cards.  Thinking about what we read and what makes sense is the hardest skill to teach emergent readers as they are so caught up in the logistics and components of reading.  What letter is that, what sound does it make, what does that "e" at the end of the word make the first vowel do again, what is that sight word....I know I've seen it before.  The internal conversation in your emergent reader's head has to be an absolute traffic jam!  (Hopefully....because if not...well that's a whole different blog post!)  This product allows your students to practice this skill in ISOLATION.  This product allows your student to realize that there may be more than one choice, but which word/picture is the best!  This is a critical skill that our students need to practice.

Ex.  The _______ buzzed around the sky.  Answer choices:  butterfly, ladybug, and bee.  All three can fly around the sky.  But when we fine tune and look at the word "buzzed" that really points towards the bee as the best possible answer.  This is when we can teach kids to cross check using other reading strategies and teaching, yes...that makes sense, but does it look right?

Take a closer look at this low prep activity. Simply print, cut, laminate, and add your favorite clothespins, clips, or even dollar spot erasers to cover the right answer!
