Treasures Wake Up Work

We use Macmillan/McGraw-Hill's Treasures for our reading program.  I was looking for a way to provide consistency and reinforcement for my students, so I created our daily Wake Up Work.

We complete a different activity with our sight words each day.  Monday is an introduction of the week's words.  Students trace and write each word.  Tuesday they put their sight words in ABC order.  Wednesday they look at pictures using the beginning sound to decode their sight words.  Thursday they unscramble each word and Friday they fill in letter boxes (short, tall and fall) to discover each sight word.  

We also focus on one sight word a day to read and highlight.  The sight word of the day is also featured in the sentence on the back.

Students read, trace, unscramble and illustrate the sentence.  Each day we work on a grammar and phonics skill covered in our Treasures unit for the week.

If you'd like to take a closer look you can preview Treasures Wake Up Work - Unit 1 Preview.  Even if you don't use Treasures, I think this would make a great resource for morning or practice work!
