Before I get to far into posting about Lesson 1, I wanted to give a BIG SHOUT OUT to Masaru of Christian Clip Arts. His website it absolutely amazing, as he is a gifted artist who wants to freely bless others with it! Thank you, Masaru, for working so hard to get the clip art ready for these readers. 🙂
Unit 2, Lesson 1 focuses on the Israelites as they learned to trust God in the middle of the desert. The phonics skill is the Long a_e pattern.
In the download, you’ll find:
- God Was on Their Side reader (with a focus on a_e words)
printables & activities for reinforcing a_e words
printables & activities to coincide with sight words (most are from Fry’s first 100 Sight Word & Pre-Primer/Primer lists)
writing ideas & prompts
focal Bible Verse with activities
5-Day Lesson Outline that gives a plan for spacing out the activities over the week
Many of the activities are the same as the ones from Unit 1, but I’ve changed up a few of them per my son’s request. 🙂
This new unit still contains:
But there are some new activities, such as:
Spin a Pattern
A-“maze”-ing Sight Words
His biggest request was that I start making mazes. It took me quite some time to figure out how to do this, but I finally did! He LOVED it. For this activity, the child draws his way through the maze, then goes back and reads the words on the path.
