How to Use: 

Our simple, easy-to-use, weekly format allows teachers to print in the order you need quickly.  We recommend printing front to back to save space and place it inside a 3-ring binder. Here is a weekly overview of the included daily activities:

Daily Warm Up Work

Daily Warm-Up Activities:

On a daily basis for 4 days a week, students will complete two daily warm-up activity pages to practice key life skills. Students will use dry erase markers to complete their daily warm-up each morning. Black and white versions are provided if you prefer a new sheet each day. In addition, students will choose a number of the day for your student to complete the daily warmup activities. 

Pre-Assessment Activities

Pre-Assessment Activities:

This is a small collection of helpful resources you can use to assess if your student is ready to begin our curriculum. Sit down with your student and review each letter name in both uppercase and lowercase versions. Then, review each letter sound with your student, noting that vowels can have more than one sound. 

Monday Activities

Phonics Chart:

Each week, you’ll be introducing students to a new word family or blend with our Phonics Charts. Start off the week with this colorful chart. Talk with students about the different words they can make with this special word family, and try to think of other rhyming words together. Display the chart somewhere in the classroom for easy reference.

Phonics Sound Chart:

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

Phonics Handwriting Worksheets:

This is a simple worksheet for students to practice writing their new words. Each handwriting page features a place for students to write their name and the written word family at the top. Pictures and their corresponding words are shown. Students have the opportunity to trace and then write the words on their own, coloring the star when they’ve done their best work. language knowledge and skills.

Word Family Mats:

These blank word family mats are templates that are very versatile and can be filled in a variety of ways: Playdough, Stickers, Painting, Dot Markers, Dab & Dot, Fingerprints, Cut & Paste Collage ('a' words, 'm' words), bricks, colored pencils, markers, and more. Use a variety of colors for extra fun and pop!

Phonics & Sight Word Flashcards:

Each week, students will learn new phonic words and 2 or 3 new sight words. These phonics and sight word flashcards will allow students to master new words and begin building small sentences. Students can cut and store cards for later use. For longer use, consider laminating and adding to a key ring for safe keeping. 

Tuesday Tasks

Blending to Read with Deconstructing:

Students build on the previous day’s activities by starting off the day by reviewing each letter sound and blending them into words. Students match each word to the corresponding picture. The second part of this worksheet provides students the opportunity to deconstruct words into the beginning, middle, and ending sounds, circling each letter as they go.

Interactive Grammar Notebook:

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, students begin to build and add to their interactive notebook. You will need to decide which method will work the best for your setup. As students will be adding to this notebook twice a week, whichever method you choose, be sure to keep this interactive notebook close by. Topics covered in the notebook will help meet kindergarten language art requirements.

Write to Find Phonics:

This is a simple spelling activity for students to work on listening for
individual letter sounds as they write. After writing each word, students find the words in the word search below. Words are presented horizontally, diagonally, vertically, and backward.

Spinner Winner Games:

This worksheet doubles as handwriting practice and a fun game! Kids will practice spelling, writing, and of course, hands-on fun! Using a paperclip spinner, students write each word they land on, and the first player to the bottom is the winner! Kids will have a blast with these engaging writing and problem-solving games. 

Writing Sight Words:

Review sight words with the previous day’s word cards. Students then practice writing their sight words with these simple activity pages. Each page features dot painting and a dot-to-dot for students to solve. Smaller words leave room for writing practice and extra activities.

Wednesday Words

Read & Respond Beginning Reading:

Students work on key reading and comprehension skills with this simple worksheet. Instruct students to put their fingers on the dot and read each word. After reading, students respond by answering questions or completing a writing activity.

Making Words with Letter Tile Spelling:

Students build words by cutting out the letter tiles and pasting them to the correct word mat. If you have them already in your home or classroom, these cards will work
with plastic letter tiles as well. Kids learn how to spell easily with using fun tools to assemble each word. 

Real Words vs. Nonsense Words:

Students build words by choosing a beginning letter and pairing it with their word family. After saying the sounds out loud, students must decide if they created a real word or a nonsense word and write it on the corresponding list. Kids will enjoy making up funny words that they can laugh at and enjoy together!

Find & Color Word Family Recognition:

Students find the words that have the same ending sound and simply color them. Students then write three of the words they found and write them at the bottom of the worksheet. Kids can use colored pencils for a variety. These word families help with recognition and rhyming. 

Sight Word Mazes:

This is a fun activity for students to catch all of the sight words as
they work their way through the maze. Encourage students to read
the words aloud as they find them and then count how many they
found. Students will gain a ton of practice with problem-solving, logic, and fine motor. 

Thursday Activities

Decodable Early Readers:

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

Hands-On Grammar Activities:

On Thursday, students continue to build and add to their interactive notebook. Students cut out and assemble the minibooks, then paste them into the next available page. Each minibook contains new information covering key language arts standards for kindergarten.

Guided Writing Prompts:

Each week, students will complete a simple story-writing prompt. Students are encouraged to use newly acquired words as well as practice language and grammar skills. Each writing prompt provides students with the necessary framework to complete the activity with little help from a teacher. Upon completion, students are encouraged to cut out their writing samples and paste them into their interactive notebooks. 

Sight Word Work:

Review sight words with the previous day’s word cards. Students then practice writing their sight words with these simple activity pages. First, spell the word aloud, then write it two times on the lines. Next, count the letters, syllables, vowels, and consonants. Then, say the word aloud and find a word that rhymes with it. Write
the word back to see if it spells a silly word. Finally, use stickers, stamps, playdough, or crayons to fill in the letters of the word.

Word Family Crowns:

Students cut and paste the pictures to match the words. Then, students cut and staple to create their own word family crown to wear! Kids will practice their scissor skills which means strengthening their fine motor skills while gaining reading confidence.

Blends & Graphs Review Week

Blends & Digraphs Review:

Each week, students will be introduced to a new word family, or blend. In addition to the charts, a simple activity page is provided for students to practice close listening to the beginning sound and identification of the correct blend with dots and arrows as a guide. Students will also have fun coloring while practicing beginning blend sound. Students then write two of the words they discovered!

Art & Science Directed Drawing & Sequencing:

Students follow the six-step drawing guidelines to create their own fun characters providing wonderful writing opportunities. Plus, our science promotes building 3-step sequences and learning to write or draw short responses in a sequential format. Science topics include life cycles, plant growth, hibernation, states of matter & more.

Nonsense Words- Tuesday & Thursday:

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, students build words by choosing a beginning letter and pairing it with their word family. After saying the sounds out loud, students must decide if they created a real word or a nonsense word, and then write it on the corresponding list. Kids will have fun problem-solving the scrambled blend letters. 

Phonics Bingo Games - Thursdays or Fridays:

Finish out your review week with a fun game of phonics bingo! Each bingo board features images of the previously learned word families. Students can take turns choosing and then reading the calling cards to find out which picture was called. Kids learn while having a blast playing games! 

Post-Assessment Review

Post-Assessment Week:

Quarterly assessments are provided for teachers to review students' skill sets. Post Assessments will cover Early Readers, Assessment Charts, Word Charts, and Practice Games. Use assessment Charts to keep track of words your student has
mastered vs additional work. Our engaging charts correlate with the assessment charts for easy testing. After the assessment, provide students with fun reading games.

Suggested Materials:

bingo daubers, playdough, pattern blocks, 5x5 geoboard & bands, popsicle sticks (full & half size), cotton swabs & paint, building bricks, snap cubes, page protectors, dry erase markers, alphabet stamps, stickers, small toy car. (View Our Favorite Fine Motor Products Here)

    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.
