Reading Folders: Practice at Home

I have several kids who are needing a little push in reading this year, and wanted to send their parents some resources to use with them at home.  I ended up coming up with a reading folder in Spanish to use, and wanted to share it with my fellow bilingual teacher friends in blog world!

I started with a file folder.  On the inside of the folder, I glued a resource I found for free here on the Teachers pay Teachers store.  It has the Spanish syllables, alphabet with pictures, days of the week, months of the year, numbers, counting by 2s, 5s, and 10s, etc.

I had a parent laminate and cut a set of high frequency word cards for each folder as well.  {Houston ISD has them for download on their site, just click above}.  I am so thankful for her help!

On the front of the folder I put a cute cover and on the back, I have suggestions of activities that parents can do with their kids using the syllables and high frequency word cards.  Click here for a link to the google doc with both of these pages included.

And Ta-da!  Reading folder complete.  I love finding free resources on the web that make my life easier-- hopefully this info will help you out too :).


  1. I totally agree with you that it's AMAZING to find products that make things easier :) Love what you came up with!
