Grade 1 ELA Skills Strand: Ancillary Components

Grade 1: Skills Spelling Cards
Spelling Cards are to be used with Code Flip Books in Units 1–7 of the Grade 1 Skills Strand. Each Spelling Card is printed front and back. One side of the card shows the sound; the other side of the card shows three things: the spelling, a power bar (indicating how common this spelling is for the sound it represents), and a sample word containing the spelling. Spelling cards will be affixed to the appropriate Flip Book pages as sounds and spelling are reviewed in Unit 1. The Flip Books show (in gray print) the spellings for all sounds taught in Grade 1. As you review the sounds in this unit (and introduce new sounds in later units), you will be asked to place the Spelling Card on the appropriate Flip Book page.

Grade 1: Skills Code Flip Book: Vowels
The Vowel Code Flip Book will be used in Units 1–7 of the Grade 1 Skills Strand to review sound/spelling correspondences with the entire class. It may also be used at any time during the year with individual or groups of students in need of targeted remediation and practice.

Grade 1: Skills Individual Code Chart
In Units 2–7 of the Grade 1 Skills Strand, students will use the Individual Code Chart to record the vowel sound/spelling correspondences they have learned. These charts are a good way for students to have at their hands a guide to help them remember what they have learned. You may wish to encourage students to refer to the Individual Code Chart when reading and writing independently.

Grade 1: Skills Code Flip Book: Consonants
The Consonant Code Flip Book will be used in Units 1–7 of the Grade 1 Skills Strand to review sound/spelling correspondences with the entire class. It may also be used at any time during the year with individual or groups of students in need of targeted remediation and practice.

Grade 1: Skills Large Cards
The Large Cards will be used in Units 1–7 of the Grade 1 Skills Strand during Large Card Chaining. Students will work in pairs or in teams to form words with the Large Letter Cards.

Please note: Media disks have been replaced by the digital versions of the Flip Books.
