SF Reading Street High Frequency Word Freebies!!

These are SF Reading Street high frequency words. I call them Star Words! This is a game that you can play in small groups or put in a station! Print the cards on cardstock, or mount them to construction paper and laminate. There are so many ways to use these cards. The students can play with a partner or in a group.

1.They lay the cards face down and take turns drawing one card. If they can read the Star Word, then they get to keep it. If not, then they put it back.

2.Print 2 sets of cards. Play Star Word Memory.

I Know My Star Words Game

You can print these in business cards. I have used them for games, and to make posters! Possibilities are endless!
Star Words Bus Cards

I use this in the writing station and their mini offices!

Classroom Pictures/Library Station

This is my library station. The ABC letters on the wall are from Target! They are wall stickers. I love them! So cheery and colorful! The ABC rug is also from Target. The anchor charts are what we have created for our reading program. We use SF Reading Street. Each week there is a comprehension skill/focus that is introduced or practiced. We have done character, setting and sequence. I thought...what better place to keep them than the library! Please don't judge my drawings! LOL! I am most definitely not an artist. It's easy to impress 4 and 5 year olds! :-)

Classroom Pictures (Lunch Choice/Check In)

This is right outside of my room. It is the first thing that the kids are expected to do before they even come in and put their backpacks away. There is a picture for each lunch choice (a-e clips on the wall) and then they find their name and put it in the matching box! If they are cold lunch, then they put it in the red lunch basket.
