Wonderful Words of the Week: A Complement to the First Grade Wonders Reading Series

01 August 2017

This past school year our district adopted the Wonders Reading series for grades K-5.  That means we had to scrap our First Grade Words of the Week phonics program.  I was not a happy camper.  To make the transition a bit smoother, Janine Every and I created the Wonderful Words of the Week packet that you are reading about now.  We utilize the activities from this packet for morning job and center work.  You could also use these pages for early finishers, word work, and for homework.  We took the spelling words and high frequency words from the Wonders series to create our word lists.  The word lists start with 10 words (Smart Start Week 1, Smart Start Week 2, Smart Start Week 3, Unit 1 Week 1, and Unit 1 Week 2) and then they go up to 12 words for the rest of the Units.

You can click and download the preview file on TpT to get Unit 1, Week 1 to try for FREE.  We have also included the Word Lists for all six units and Smart Start in the preview file.



Each week includes the following activities, which can be used as literacy centers, morning work, word work, early finisher work, or homework.
·      Flash Cards
·      Word Search
·      Sentence Unscramble (three different ones each week, two to a page)
·      Word Unscramble
·      Say It – Trace It – Stamp It (two pages)
·      Cootie Catcher
·      Spin a Word (two pages)
·      Tiny Word Search
·      Search-Read-Write the Room (three pages)












This is currently a growing bundle.  The other units are done, we just need to proof before posting and we did not want you to miss out on the TpT sale.  The price will go up with each unit we add to the packet.

  1. Hi Erica,
    I purchased your Farmhouse Classroom Decor Bundle during the TpT sale yesterday and am wondering if your Farmhouse-themed Inspirational Posters will be included in that bundle. They look amazing!
