Large Print Phonogram Pattern Booklets
These books are in black and white. I have used them as a supplementary materials for the units listed. The booklets contain phonetic lists, sentences, and a story. The print is very large, which is helpful for students with vision difficulties, however this takes up more room on the page, requiring more paper. I'll be working to modify these so that the print will be smaller, but still very readable for young children. They'll be available on Level 4 - Phonogram Patterns section.

Other Reading Street Materials
These Power Point presentations will work on a Macintosh computer. They will also work on an IBM compatible computer, but some of the clip art may not load correctly. They go with the Reading Street first grade curriculum. They focus on the phonics patterns taught in each unit. Click below to view or download.
Power Point Presentations
These are the high frequency words form the Reading Street first grade program. They should be printed in color on white cardstock, then cut into individual cards. They can be used for a word wall or as flashcards for high-frequency word review.
These are the colors: red/short a, dark red/long a, pink/special a (a/all), green/short e, dark green/long e, light purple/short i, purple/long i, light orange/short o, orange/long o, blue/special o (o/to), light blue/short u, blue/long u, aqua/special u (u/push), brown/ou-ow, tan/oi-oy.

Reading Street First Grade Phonogram Cards
Use these cards to introduce and review the phonogram patterns (sh, th, a_e, ee) studied in the first grade Reading Street program. Have students say the sound for each pattern in unison. If the pattern has more than one sound, students should say each sound, one after the other, with a slight pause between the sounds. The cards can also be used individually and in small groups.
These are the high frequency words form the Reading Street first grade program. They should be printed in color on white cardstock. The words are printed in lists. Words with the same vowel pattern are all on the same list. See the list above to see the connection between the vowel sounds and the colors. I use these lists for my word wall.
Picture Dictionary - Alphabet Letters
This booklet is in the Learning the Alphabet section. It has a page of words and pictures for each letter of the alphabet. Both beginning and ending sound pages are included. This will make a nice spelling reference book for first graders.
