Welcome to Another Fabulous Product Swap!

Welcome to my third Stop, SWAP & Roll Product Swap!

I would like to give a BIG thank you all the participants who have been so great to work with this time around!

I have had the amazing pleasure of swapping products with Alex from:


It has been so fun getting to know her and becoming blogging friends! We even found out that we're both going to the Vegas TPT Conference this July and I can't wait to meet her in person! I seriously love this amazing online community we have and how friendly everyone is.

If you haven't heard of her or her blog yet then you are definitely in for a treat today!

I was able to choose a product from Alex' store to print out, use and blog about- just like everyone else did!

After adding a TON of her products to my wishlist (seriously, you NEED to browse her store!) I was finally able to decide which one I'd like to use for the swap....her Fluency Passages for Early Readers CVC Word Families pack:

I emailed Alex letting her know, and you know what that sweet girl did!? She sent me her entire Fluency Passages for Early Readers Bundle! That includes both her CVC and CVCe word families packs!

So today, I am very excited to share with you all about her Fluency Passages and how much fun we had with them!

These packs have a fabulous variety and are fiiled with 23 CVC passages and 18 CVCe word family passages with room for illustrations at the bottom of each page.

First, we talked talked about what it meant to be an illustrator. I told them that we were going to illustrate a short would have thought I told them we were having an ice cream party with all the squeals and cheering that happened. (They are not art deprived either!)

Each student had a different story and we talked about taking our time and drawing details in our pictures.

Once I passed these out you could hear a pin drop! They were all concentrating so hard and trying to decide how to draw their pictures. I really like how easily you can differentiate with all of the different passages included too!

They turned out adorable! Seriously, look at the detail in "Mike's Bike" above!
Some of the girls even wanted to color the border fancy to match their pictures.

I also had them find and color each punctuation mark throughout their passage. You could easily have them search and color the word families too! (That's the plan next time)

As an added bonus, both the CVC and CVCe packs have fluency phrase pages to allow students to practice reading phrases in isolation! 

Now, you probably want to try out a couple of these passages right!? Alex has a Sampler pack in her store for you! Included are 2 fluency passages and 2 pages of fluency phrases from her bundle!
After you check out this sampler pack you're probably going to want to buy it! Well, Alex has this bundle on sale right now in her store! Grab it at this discounted price while you can!

Alex is such a sweetheart and is allowing one of my lucky readers to win her BUNDLE! She will email the lucky winner their very own copy!!
