Speed Drills are fast drills with the HFW for each story. Students practice reading the words and time how long it takes them to read the whole sheet. Then after practicing, they time themselves again to see how much they've improved.

Decodable Posters are 8X10 sized pages that we print off and give the kids to study each week. They have the Spelling Words for the Story, the HFW for the story and then a set of words that the children should be able to read using the phonetic skills they learn during the story for that week.

Assessment Record Sheets for the stories of Unit One...for skill words, HFW, and sentence reading.

Unit One Battleship Games created by Andrea Cotner
Students need to use folders to prevent the other student from seeing their game board. Pair up students and have each one place 5 counters anywhere on the board. They take turns reading a word/phrase aloud to their partner trying to see if the partner has a "ship" (counter) on that particular word/phrase. If the buddy does, then he says "hit" and removes the ship. If he doesn't then he says "miss". The winner is the first one to "hit" all of their partner's ships.
