Phase 2 and 3 Sounds on Super Hero Badges and Phase 2 & 3 Tricky words on Super Hero Capes

Phase 2 and 3 Sounds on Super Hero Badges and Phase 2 & 3 Tricky words on Super Hero Capes

Phase 2 and 3 Sounds on Super Hero Badges and Phase 2 & 3 Tricky words on Super Hero Capes All phase 2 and 3 sounds and tricky words - following letters and sounds. Originally used for a 'super sounds' phonics display. Every time we learnt a new sound or word we added it to the display like a phonics working wall. However, could also be used for lots of other things. Great for engaging boys in phonics.

Handwriting Practice Page Notebook - Letter formation skills

Handwriting Practice Page Notebook - Letter formation skills

This resource is a handwriting notebook to focus on letter formation. There is a page of handwriting practice for all upper and lower case letters. After each set of practice pages for the letter, there is a page with two sentences to practice that letter and a page for students to write their own words. The notebook can be stapled or bound for each student, or given as individual practice pages. Forming letters correctly is so important to reading and writing skills, so all pages begin with the “arrow” font to remind students which pencil strokes come first. 105 pages
