As you know (or may not know), my own classroom instruction is heavily phonics-based. I previously taught a reading class specifically designed for students with dyslexic tendencies, and my main goal was to help support them with decoding skills. We worked daily on phonemic awareness, reading strategies, and spelling through multi-sensory instructional methods. I explicitly taught phonics and spelling rules. While I have transitioned back to a "traditional" classroom at this point, I continue to implement these staples into my daily reading instruction. Naturally, I design products with my students in mind, because I use my products in my classroom as well.
Previously, there were a couple of products for which I wrote my own little stories to coincide with other word-building activities. My students always love those! I think they just like the idea of reading authentic writing, and it's fun for them to hear something a teacher has written for a change.
With that in mind, I decided to generate products that I am calling "Literature-Rich Resources for Phonics Instruction." These resources not only contain word work activities based on a specific phonics rule, but they also feature skill-based stories I have written as well. They are all available for purchase, (or as free downloads) in the Tally Tales TPT store. The following images highlight a few of my best-selling products.
