Summer Sight Words and some Fab Finds

 I did a little shopping yesterday... I didn't go too crazy (I still have time though-hehe). Here are some fab things I bought:

When I saw this I had to have it! I saw it on pinterest and was too lazy to make! Now my kiddos and I get to do this tomorrow and I am super duper excited!! Click here if you want it! 

I have been wanting to buy a guided reading packet for a while. I know Erica is amazing so I chose hers! It is awesome! I love the book bag idea and plan on incorporating next year!  Click here if you want it! 

I also purchased some cutesy graphics from Graphics from the Pond.. I couldn't resist these cupcakes and these cute birdies! Love them and can't wait to use them! 
I also found some more borders super super cheap here!

I might do some more shopping--- who can resist!?!

Anyway, I have a freebie for all you first grade teachers. Have you ever visited this site, The School Bell? There is an amazing dolch sight word book on here that I sent home for the summer with my firsties last year. 
My kids are a little bit smarter this year (I am not bragging or anything!) and have been using the dolch book ALL year so I made a new sight word book using a mixture of dolch and other sight words for my firsties to practice over the summer. I got the list here and just spruced it up a bit. I love these long books! 

This is the title page! Here are some photos of a printed copy:

Basically, you will print regularly and fold in half (with the writing on the outside), then staple on the non-folded edge. (after you put the lists in order of course!)

I am still in such an appreciative mood that this is posted for FREE here! TPT is having an overload and not accepting any new uploads so for now this little book is available here... again... click hereha! If you are a K teacher I really recommend that other School Bell site. That dolch book is awesome- it includes the words and common phrases they are used in. I think these books are a perfect send home for summer!

UPDATE: I did upload the sight word book to TPT last night, so you can click here to download for free :)

Don't forget to visit TPT... The awesome sale going on will last another few days- Check out my store for a 20% discount! 

Have a great night!
