Phonics Chants {free printable}

Ok, ok, ok....so it's been over a month since I've posted here.  Believe me, I know!  The start of this school year threw my team and me an unbelievable curve ball, and we are just now starting to come up for air.

So, here's a little something I threw together tonight for all of my incredibly faithful followers, my tremendously wonderful friends who have continued check my blog and leave such sweet comments.  I'm so sorry that I have been incognito.  I literally have been working nonstop on "school business," church stuff and training for my marathon since August 15.  Today was the first day that I took a nap, and even though it lasted for only one hour, it was GLORIOUS!

My freebie for you today is a set of 16 cards that can be used anytime you want your kids to chant words.  In 2nd grade, we have some "phonics charts" or word charts that contain rows of words that follow a phonics rule of the week.  There are about 5 words on a row and 4-5 rows on a chart.  We usually display one chart via the projector each day, and we ask our kiddos to choral read the words.  And that's all fine and dandy, but come on now.  Let's make that a little more fun.  So, some of these chants are my original ideas and some of them are ideas that I've tweaked from traditional word wall chants that I found from other websites and blogs.  So {here} ya go...enjoy!  Happy reading!  Oh, and if you have more ideas to add, please leave a comment and I'll make more cards to add to this set.

I love love love it! I teach 2nd as well, and those darn Open Court blending and word knowledge overheads just put my kiddos to sleep. This is an amazing idea. Do you just pick a random card each day? Or change it up with each row?

I love your blog--from one Belinda to another, also a teacher! I've just printed out a couple of things here that I'd like to use with my first graders.

I haven't been blogging for over a year now, but you've inspired me to start blogging again. Soon...

I know this was posted over a year ago, but I'm new to the blogging world and just found you. I have another card to add "Beat the Teacher". I do the words and time myself, then I write it on the chalkboard (yes, I still have chalkboards and no not by choice); then the students do it and I time them. If someone messes up/gets totally behind, then they have to start over.
