Dog Update and Wild About Word Work

We finally got our dog Romeo back!  A lady found him and gave him to her friend, who was a vet.  They scanned his microchip, but it wasn't registered to me.  He was still registered to the no-kill shelter we got him at.  They never contacted us.  Finally, I got the brilliant idea to call the microchip company and viola! they put us in contact with the vet.  Our four legged baby is home! We missed him.

I've received requests to combine my tic-tac-toe boards and papers.  I said I wasn't going to do it, but I decided to. {{Lesson learned-if you bug me, I will come around, lol}}

 Now, they are even better!  

I've added more choices to meet all of the diverse learners in your classroom.  

The words used are different, too.  I decided to use high frequency words as well as the most common words in leveled readers, between levels 3-20.  

This way students are exposed to words they both read and write.

Here is a sampling of what you will get.

Here is the listing.

This product provides ten weeks of work work that is differentiated and perfect for all types of learners. All the activities are included so all you need to do is print and go!

  8. That is amazing that you got your dog back! A few years ago our dog went missing for over a week (long story!). Every single day we spent our lunch and a couple of hours after work driving around looking for her. One day during our lunch time we found her limping down the street. I'm not sure who was more excited... us or her. Another miracle! :-)

    You word work unit looks great.
