KinderPhonics Unit One: Letters A-Z {freebie}

Hey friends!  I have been absent for feels so great to share a brand new creation with you!  This project has been on my mind for some time and it feels awesome to finally get my ideas down on paper.  Below I will tell more about the program!  Note that this is the first of three units.  When will the other units be released?  I'm really shooting for this summer!

KinderPhonics is teacher created for teachers!  This phonics curriculum is made up of three units; Letters A-Z, Sounds to Words, and Words to Sentences.  The program is well thought out and does no ask for unrealistic measures from the teachers or the students.  The program is flexible and can work in place of or with your current phonics curriculum.  A brief description of each unit is included below.

Unit One: A brief introduction to the alphabet.  This unit dedicates on day per letter.  Phonemic awareness skills covered in Unit One:  rhyming, syllables, and single sounds..all covered under the RF.K.2 Common Core State Standard.

Unit Two: A review of the alphabet with a focus on handwriting and letter sounds.  Two are dedicated per letter with a review day at the end of the week.

Unit Three:  An introduction of more rigorous phonics skills.  Dedicated one "week" per skill.  

Below you will find a few snapshots of the resources found in unit one!
Letter Sound Cards

Alphabet Picture Cards {3 per letter}

Dry Erase Handwriting Cards

Letter Sound Posters

Alphabet Flashcards

The Handwriting Helper {printed and place into THESE reasonably priced sleeves}

I also know as a visuak person myself that I need to see how this work for my current school calendar.  If you would like to see how these units could fall throughout the school click HERE to view a draft.

Also, after asking on my facebook some requested no spelling/fluency tests.  So, I did not include anything in the unit for that in case you were not interested.  However, if you are interested in the above mentioned draft I have line out spelling words that align with the concepts being taught at the time.  I also made these FREEBIE fluency check templates you can use alongside 
KinderPhonics©.  Click below to grab the freebie!


I will let you know via my Facebook once units two and three are released!

Have a great weekend
