I Can Rhyme Chart

Each week you’ll be introducing children to a new word family or blend.  Start off the week with this colorful chart.  Talk with children about the different words they can make with this special word family and try to think of other rhyming words together.

Letter Sound Chart

Sound out each letter individually, and then blend them together as you move your finger across the letters and arrows. Encourage children to keep the sound going until they reach the end of the arrow, changing and blending sounds when their finger crosses over new letters.

Handwriting Worksheet

This is a simple worksheet for children to practice writing their new words. Each handwriting page features a place for children to write their name and the written word family at the top.  Pictures and their corresponding words are shown, and children have the opportunity to trace and then write the words on their own, checking off each row they complete.

Blank Word Family Template

These blank word family templates are very versatile and can be filled in a variety of ways: Playdough mats, Stickers, Painting, Dot Markers, Fingerprints, Cut & Paste Collage (a words, m words)…..etc.

Sight Word Cards

Each week children will learn two or three new sight words.  Introduce children to these new words and use the sight word cards to begin building small sentences. Children can cut and store cards for later use.



Sound it Out

Children build on the previous days activities by starting off the day reviewing each letter sound and blending them into words.  Children match each word to the corresponding picture.  The second part of this worksheet provides children the opportunity to deconstruct words into beginning, middle and ending sounds, circling each letter as they go. Encourage children to say these sounds out loud as they work.

Interactive Notebook Activity

On Tuesdays and Thursdays children begin to build and add to their interactive folder.  Children cut out and assemble the minibooklet and add it to their folder.  Each minibooklet contains new information covering key Language Arts standards for Kindergarten.

Write & Find

This is a simple spelling activity for children to work on listening for individual letter sounds.  After writing each word, children find the words in the wordsearch below.

Spinner Winner

This worksheet doubles as handwriting practice and a fun game!  Using a paperclip spinner, children write each word they land on, first one to the top wins!

Daily Sight Word Work

Review sight words with yesterday’s word cards. Children then practice writing their sight words with these simple activity pages.  Each page features dot painting and a dot to dot for children to solve.  Smaller words leave room for writing practice and extra activities.



Read & Respond

Children work on key reading and comprehension skills with this simple worksheet.  Instruct children to put their finger on the dot and read each word.  After reading children respond by answering questions or completing a writing activity.  This worksheet is progressive throughout the curriculum so reading selections and responses will be increasingly harder as the child strengthens their reading skills.

Making Words w/Letter Tiles

Children build words by cutting out the letter tiles and pasting them to the correct word mat.  If you have them, these cards will work with plastic letter tiles as well.

Nonsense Words

Children build words by choosing a beginning letter and pairing it with their word family.  After saying the sounds out loud, children much decided it they created a real word or a nonsense word, and write it on the corresponding list.

Find & Color Word Family

Children find the words that have the same ending sound and color them.  Children then write three of the words they found.

Sight Word Maze

A fun activity for children to catch all of theirsight words as they work their way through the maze. Encourage children to read the words alound as they find them, counting up how many they found.



Story Reader

Children put their reading skills to the test with this end of the week comic book style story reader.  The goal is for children to read this story three times on their own.  If your child is struggling with this reader, take breaks and review or even try to finish is over the weekend.

Guided Writing

Each week children will complete a simple story writing prompt.  Children are encouraged to use newly acquired words as well as practice language and grammar skills. Each writing prompt provides children with the necessary framework to complete the activity with little help from a teacher.  Upon completion children are encouraged to cut out their writing and word box and paste them into their interactive notebook.  Writing samples can be read during review week and vocabulary can be used as a reference for future assignments.

Interactive Notebook

On Thursday children continue to build and add to their interactive notebook.  Children cut out and assemble the minibook and paste it into the next available page. Each minibook contains new information covering key Language Arts standards for Kindergarten.

Daily Sight Word Work

Review sight words with yesterday’s word cards. Children then practice writing their sight words with these simple activity pages.

End of the Week Crown

Children cut and paste to create their own word family crown to wear!



Review & Blends Week

Every five weeks has been scheduled as an optional review week for word families and grammar concepts learned during the previous four weeks. (If you find your child is needing review, check out our optional review and assessment pack.)  For children ready to progress we’ve scheduled a week of beginning blends for children to learn and pair up with their word families.  The blends week schedule (shown above) is very similar to a normal week with a few substitutions:

Blend Sound Chart

Each week you’ll be introducing children to a new word family or blend.  Start off the week with this colorful chart.  Talk with children about the different words they can make with this special word family and try to think of other rhyming words together.

Blending to Read

This is a simple activity page for children to practice close listening to the beginning sound and identify the correct blend. Children should use the dots and arrows as finger placement guides as they blend each word together.

Find & Color

Children find the words that have the beginning blend sound and color them.  Children then write two of the words they found.

Draw & Write (Mon & Wed)

Children follow the six step drawing guidelines to create their own fun characters.  Drawing builds small motor skills, increased confidence and provides writing opportunities for children to create stories for their creations.

Science Sequencing (Mon & Wed)

Children build 3-step sequences and learn to write or draw short responses in a First, Next, Last format.  Science topics include life cycles, plant growth, hibernation, states of matter and more.

Nonsense Words (Tues & Thurs)

Children build words by choosing a beginning letter and pairing it with their word family.  After saying the sounds out loud, children much decided it they created a real word or a nonsense word, and write it on the corresponding list.

Sort it Out   (Tues & Thurs)

Sorting is a great way to assess comprehension.  Children use the included game cards and mats to sort through their newly learned beginning blends. Encourage children to cut out each picture and sort them into the correct categories.  Remind them to check each word before they paste it down.

Bingo Games  (Fri)

Finish out your blends week with a fun game of phonics bingo!  Each bingo board features images of the previously learned word families.  Children can take turns choosing and then reading the calling cards to find out which picture was called.

    This product is more than I expected.

    I have three kids, all girls. (7, 5 and 3.) I have been using the amazing resources from this website and it’s sister websites since my oldest was in preschool. (She LOVED the file folder games.)

    I purchased this product for my 5yr, now in Kindergarten. She tested into the high ability class in our district. She is smart and capable (and also LOVED the file folder games!), but the class is fast paced and she easily became frustrated with reading. She is a visual and tactile learner and easily becomes bored and frustrated if she doesn’t know the words immediately.

    With this product I wished to give a more entertaining way to see words and sound them out. We have Reading Eggs and Brainzy, but this product she responds the most to. She loves the activities!

    And what I love most is, in doing these activities she realizes her abilities and has gained so much confidence with reading. She still becomes frustrated some times, but no longer gives up!!!!!

    I also love the writing portion, with the fast pace of this class penmanship is not a real focus, so we do extra writing at home. (Something she now enjoys!).

    Thank you Crafty Classroom.

    I am a teacher turned stay at home mom and with 3 kids under 5 it is challenging to keep up with household chores, cooking, and school things. I have been using the alphabet curriculum with my 3 year old and this with my oldest who has mastered the letters and sounds. She has really enjoyed it and feels so proud of herself that she can read! This has helped her to be motivated and she asks to do it! I like the graphics and that it is print ready, so easy to set up and get started. It covers many standards that are required by our state. I am soooo pumped about the interactive notebook!!!!! I have been looking for something like this and haven’t been able to find exactly what I was looking for and was contemplating making my own until I found this! I would love to see a math curriculum with the interactive notebook. As a teacher I know the time that was spent putting this together so I am truly grateful! If you have multiple kids, I would recommend getting the bundle that includes the alphabet curriculum. It is easy to set up and will allow you one on one time with each of your kids all while helping them be school ready! Thanks!

    My son was diagnosed with dyslexia earlier this year. I have been looking for something to help supplement what we already have. I have been able to pinpoint some things that he struggles with and this curriculum definitely helps address some of those challenges. Repetition is extremely important, especially in different ways. It helps my son get extra exposure to things like phonograms and word blends without seeming like overkill.

    The READ Curriculum has been a great asset to our students this school yea!. I teach a Special Education classroom with several different levels of learning. I purchased the READ Curriculum and the ABC Curriculum. Both programs have been very easy to follow and hold a variety of ways for our students to learn. The writing activities in the READ curriculum have been useful for our class. Thank you for providing awesome materials!

    There are not enough starts for this review rating! I highly recommend it. This compares to other multi-sensory reading curriculum out there for a fraction of the cost!! If your eager readers love Super Why and Wonder Red’s rhyming song, your child will absolutely LOVE the rhyming activities!!
    This is a complete language arts/phonics /reading and writing program. Just download print and go ( Read ! )
    Thank you for the wonderful program at an affordable price!

    I have tried to teach my 5 year old to read with other curriculum and the results were tears, from both of us. A frustrated child and a mom worried she couldn’t teach her child to read. This curriculum has been a game changer for us. No more tears! We’re having fun and she is doing so well with this interactive, hand-on curriculum!

    Our 4 year old son is a very eager learner. We wanted to find a complete curriculum that would give him a head start and encourage his eagerness to learn before starting kindergarten. He loved the READ program. He enjoyed the variety of activities and games. He asked everyday when “school” time would start! Thanks to the READ curriculum notebook he will be heading into kindergarten well prepared.

    I bought this curriculum for the first time 2 weeks ago, started using it today as our first year of homeschooling for my 5 yr old. Looking through the curriculum I was excited as to what it all covered. Today was our first day with the “am” blend and I’m so excited for our son to being his read journey, not to mention the look on his face when he gets the words correct. Makes my heart melt!! I am extremely happy with my purchase of this fantastic curriculum and hope 1st grade is next to be purchased.

    Brings the stress of first time homeschooling to an ease.

    I read a raving review about this curriculum from pinterest, and as a first time homeschool mom, I was drowning in curricula options.. I read reviews, and looked at the samples, prayed over it, and carefully decided this was it for my kindergartener…

    Since day 1 when I printed this and read through it, I knew we were going to love it, and my kindergartener looks forward to doing this every single day!

    I LOVE the fact that everything is perfectly laid out for you every single day, and the worksheets are a fantastic balance of copywork, hands on, and with a creative and FUN aspect. My kindergartener was actually READING these full sentences by the end of the first week and she’s retained everything she’s learned. We cannot say more amazing things about this.

    Thank you Crafty Classroom!!!

    Purchased this for my son and am in the process of printing everything out. I’m so excited to see you added a 1st grade level to do next!

    I love this curriculum! I have been using the Kindergarten notebook for our RLA curriculum since August, and it has been perfect for us. I especially like the way the phonics sections are broken up in a way that flows nicely, and the interactive grammar journal covers so many things in a fun and simplistic way. I like that when we come to a word family that my child already knows well, we can just move through it quickly. There is so much included with this program that you shouldn’t expect to do it all; just choose the activities that would best help your child at his or her pace. The only things we have really used to supplement this program is a different Fry word book because my son needed more of a challenge in this area, and we read a lot of chapter read alouds for the literature component. I definitely intend to use the 1st grade notebook next year. Overall, I would highly recommend this product!

    I selected this curriculum for homeschooling. The variety of activities keeps my kindergartener engaged.
    I like the progression and pace of the program.
    I hope for the next edition the package could include numbered pages and re-ordering the activities so that pages that require single-sided printing can be grouped at the front of each day and rest of the day’s activities can be printed double-sided.
