Just completed the first #tptsellerchallenge! This product definitely needed a makeover. Parents love this homework pack in my class. It really helps them understand vowel patterns so they can help their child begin to read. I print it all off and put it in a homework folder at the beginning of the school year. It is a work at your own pace packet. Some students finish it really fast, while others take all year to complete it. There are 67 pages in this pack and it starts by reviewing letter sounds and CVC words. Then it works through all of the vowel patterns and sight words for first grade. I let parents count working on these pages towards their nightly reading minutes. Once students finish the packet, I have them read books for their nightly reading. The students who finish are usually ready for chapter books so I encourage parents to start with some age appropriate chapter books like Rainbow Magic or Magic Tree House.
