Feel free to download and reproduce these materials for your own personal classroom use, but please leave my name at the bottom of each page. Please note that since I don't have students who use these, there may be a few occasional typos, so let me know if you find any! My kids were always sure to point out my bloopers in the old days and thought they were pretty smart!

I plan to add supplemental activities for each week based on the phonics/spelling skill listed in the matrix. I will also add poems/songs that focus on the phonics skills or lesson vocabulary words.

Let me know if you have other requests for this series:carl1404@msn.com. Since I am a retired reading specialist I don't have access to the teacher's manuals, but the matrix is packed with information that will allow me to enrich your program through this web page.
 

Thanks for providing the opportunity to help you help yourselves and your children. Enjoy!

Mc-Graw Hill Wonders 3rd Grade CD

In an effort to make things more convenient for third grade teachers I decided to create a CD with all of the supplemental materials on it. Unit lessons have a nine page activity packet, phonics and/or spelling practice activities outlined in the third grade matrix and a vocabulary poem for independent practice of high frequency words and/or phonics skills in context. Included on the CD are reproducible instruction sets for word families, r-Controlled vowels, blends, contractions, suffixes, plural nouns, comparative endings, digraphs, diphthongs, and silent letters. Everything will be on one CD in individual Unit/Lesson folders for easy access.

Contact me for group discount on multiple copies for your school.
