Button Buttons Books

My students love EVERYTHING Pete the Cat! I created a set of books to use with them as we learn color, number and basic sight words. There are 3 levels of books to help differentiate for your students. The first book has all the words printed. The second book has a fill in the blank for the color word. And the third type of book has blanks for the number and color words. The students count and color according to the text. The books are designed to go from your printer to copy machine without shuffling or folding pages to make the books. Simple copy, fold and staple and you're ready to put the books out for students to use.

Head over to TPT or Teachers Notebook to get your free set of book.
I would love some feedback on how these work for you and your students. It helps me to create materials that help you as teachers and provide fun for students as they learn

Syllable Count Freebie

We are working hard to determine the number of syllables in common words around the classroom. Maybe your students are working on this skill too...if so, why not download this freebie for them to try? My students love to grab a clipboard and go around the room searching for 1,2,3 or 4 syllable words. This packet has a Fall into Winter type theme. There are pages to help students find 1,2 syllable words as well as 1,2,3 or 2,3 or 2,3,4 syllable words. I really like to create materials that allow for differentiated learning. If some of your students are not quite catching on to syllables, give them the lower numbers, if your students are clapping along just fine, then challenge them with the higher syllable counts.
Either way, they should have a lot of fun. You can head over to my shops at  TPT or Teachers Notebook  to get your free set of Syllable Count Write the Room packet.
 And yes, its CCSS RF.3.2 and RF.1.2 ;-) Would love a little feedback on how this goes over in your classroom. THANKS!
