And what better way to celebrate a sale, but with posting a new product! I have been working on these Beginning Reader Center Activities for a long time and I am so excited to finally have it posted on TPT yesterday! It is over 400 pages and can last you the ENTIRE SCHOOL YEAR! Most importantly, it is on sale for 50% off today only!
This product is great for students who have recently mastered letter identification. If they are still working on letters, think about checking out my letter identification worksheets and letter assessments and activities.
Once letters are mastered, our students are ready to begin reading and spelling! For many students in special ed, typical sight words (I, but, the) are not the place to start. Instead, I like to start with functional words that have more meaning and make reading more motivating and fun for my students.
This product can be used to work on reading, spelling, or both!. This product can be used with the pre-made word lists, your own word lists, or a combination of both!
The activities and assessments included are good for beginning writers, although accommodations can easily be made to most activities for non-writers. Students do not need to be verbal to utilize this product.

*30 Weekly word lists for student use as well as a blank list for your own word lists.
