Trade and Grade with A Sunny Day In First Grade

I am SUPER excited to be participating in my second Trade and Grade!  This month the ALWAYS AMAZING Amanda from The Primary Gal paired us up and I was paired with Sarah from A Sunny Day in First Grade.  It was PERFECT timing – this bossy R set was EXACTLY what my firsties needed!  

The pack is CHOCK full of goodies!  It has independent practice pages, literacy center activities, and a SUPER CUTE craftivity!  Read on and see how my kiddos used the pack and Sarah has been SO SO SWEET and share a sample of her pack with my readers!  Please tell her how much you LOVE it by leaving a comment here or over on her blog!  She is writing all about one of my packs on her blog, so check it out!!

How often are you looking for quick practice for your kiddos to complete?  I know that I like to have kids complete a practice reinforce page daily as one of their activities during literacy center time.  These practice pages all reinforce words with er, ir, or ur.  Here are some pics of them completing these sheets! 

This one was their favorite!

There are multiple versions of this one – which is great practice!

Literacy Centers

This pack includes 2 sorts.  The first sort asks students to look at words and sort them into er, ir, and ur groups.  Here’s a peek at a few of my firsties working on it.

The second sort asks the kiddos to match a picture to a word that has an er, ir, or ur.  I wanted to get a picture of them working on this one, but I missed it!!

This game asked kids to read the words and color the box if they got it correct. We used laminated mats and dry erase markers. This was a favorite and they asked to play again and again!  

Finally, the pack has a FABULOUS booklet that could launch the unit.  She has them organized in two ways to match what is easier for you (teacher assembly or child assembly).  My kids LOVED reading and coloring the book.

And this was the perfect set up for….


We do A LOT of crafts in my classroom and I LOVE when they connect so easily to what I am teaching.  The kiddos fell in LOVE with the dog from the mini book they read and colored and in this craft they got to meet him again! 

The craft is easy to copy and cut and put together. 

In the end, kiddos get to come up with ir, er, and ur words that they can spell.  Many of my kids could do this independently, but some benefitted from working in groups and using the room for ideas and spelling tips. 

How cute are these??

I am SO excited to have been able to try this unit out this year and plan to use it again next year!  Are you as excited as I am?  Sarah was SWEET enough to share a sample freebie with you!  Find it HERE
