Increase your students' ability to recognize sight words and phrases instantaneously with 180 Days of High-Frequency Words. Even if you do not have time for vocabulary instruction, this series features quick, easy-to-use daily word study activities to include in the language arts block. Based on Fry's 1000 Instant Words, 180 Days of High-Frequency Words for First Grade introduces four snap words each week – a total of 144 high-frequency words is covered – in a structure that places the focus on word recognition. As students familiarize themselves with target words and increase their ability to identify high-frequency words in different ways, they will cut, color, trace, match, circle, identify rhymes, draw, and fill in the blank in cloze sentences. Activities can be used as a weekly or cumulative assessment, giving teachers an opportunity to test students on necessary words. This invaluable classroom resource for balanced literacy also provides downloadable files. Boost reading, writing, and spelling skills with this series that prepares students for college and career readiness.

Once upon a time in 1977...Rachelle Cracchiolo started Teacher Created Materials with a friend and fellow teacher. Both were eager to share their ideas and passion for education with other classroom leaders. What began as a hobby, selling lesson plans to local stores, became a part-time job after a full day of teaching, and eventually blossomed into a nonstop opportunity to develop and grow Teacher Created Materials as a full-service company, and a welcome and familiar name in every classroom. The story continued in 2004 with the launch of Shell Education and the introduction of professional resources and classroom application books designed to support Teacher Created Materials curriculum resources. Today, Teacher Created Materials is one of the most recognized names in educational publishing around the world...and the story continues educationally ever after.
