Reading Street Decodables

I fell in love with the decodable activites that I found at Life in First Grade.  Unfortunately, she did not have the new decodable stories and I found that I really needed them in my classroom.  So I contacted Life in First Grade and asked if I could make the rest and she said, "YEP!" because she isn't teaching first grade anymore (bummer for us).  I just finished the decodables for "Honey Bees." and I can't wait to use them next week.  I retyped the stories and made an activity to practice the phonics skills.  I also added a second page to practice comprehension strategies.
I have been asked how I use the decodables in my classroom.    I use the first decodable story whole group on Monday ad I am very deliberate in teaching the specific skills.  My students buddy read the second decodable and work on it together on Wednesday.  I use the third decodable on Thursday as a quick check.  The students work independently.  My strategic kiddos work on it with a parent volunteer.  This is what works for me at this point in time.  I am always readjusting and tweaking to make things run better.  I have added all three decodables to my TpT store for FREE!!!  I would love to hear how you use the decodables in your classroom!!
