It's that time of year when many of us are back in school and others will soon be following. Thankfully, it's also time for back to school sales.
Teachers Pay Teachers is holding their annual sale on August 18th & 19th. Everything in my store will be on sale for 20% off. You can get an additional discount by using the code BTS13 to make it 28% off. Here are some of my best items for the back to school season. Just click on a picture to find out more.



Please take advantage of this opportunity to save yourself time and money while getting the products you need to get off to a great start this school year. I know I will be taking advantage of the sale.

AM Family Spin and Graph

This is the last short a word family spin and graph sheet that have made. I hope you enjoy it. 
Here is a video clip for -am family words. 
Kidz Phonics has a game that can be used to review short a CVC words. You can check it out here.

If you have any other free online resources you use for teaching short a CVC words I would love to hear about them. Let me know.

As always, thank you for stopping by today. Please take a second to follow me here at Grade School Giggles.

AN Family Spin and Graph

Today I have another Spin and Graph sheet. This one is for the -an word family.
I also found this little video that I thought would work well with this word family. Starfall also has a great interactive story (click here) and activity (click here) that are great for the -an word family.

What are your favorite activities for teaching short a word families? I'd love to hear about them.

AD Family Spin and Graph

Today I am sharing another Spin and Graph Freebie. This one is for the -ad family. You could pair it with the book "I Was So Mad" by Mercer Mayer and maybe have the kids draw or write about a time they were mad.

AT Family Spin and Graph

 We're back in school now and I am exhausted. The first week of school always kicks my hind end if you know what I mean. The kids have much more energy than me. A ton more! I need a nap, but before I crash I wanted to share this little freebie with you.
It is a spin and graph worksheet. Students spin using a paperclip and pencil. Then, they complete the frequency chart and bar graph using -at family words.
