3. Vivid Verbs Mini Set
Helping your students upgrade their verbs from “boring verbs” to “vivid verbs” can improve their written and verbal sentences tremendously. By teaching them to use more specific verbs, they’ll be able to create images in their reader or listener’s mind.
This set includes a pre-test worksheet that can be used to get a sample of the verbs your students use. Then use the 50 word cards, 10 sorting pages, vivid verb lists, and 4 worksheets to practice with your students. Finally, use the post-test worksheet to see their progress.

4. Initial Sound Matching Cards
Awareness of phonemes, the smallest units of sound, is important for reading and working on speech sounds. You can help your students work on one of the earliest phonemic awareness tasks by matching words that have the same initial sound.
Included are 10 pairs (20 picture cards) of words that begin with the same sound. They are available in color and black and white.

5. Rhyming Fill-in Story Inspired by Green Eggs and Ham
Green Eggs and Ham is the best selling Dr. Seuss book and a favorite rhyming story for many young readers. This classic book encourages children to try something new because they may discover that they enjoy it. You can read this book with your students before completing the fill-in story, which may help them become more familiar with poetic rhythm and rhyme.
Students will identify rhyming words and then use them to fill-in the blanks and complete our story Why Not Steak or Maybe Cake?, which was inspired by Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss.
