The posters have been made to print at A3 - change the page set up if they are A4. Click the thumbnail to open the download in Google Drive. You do not need to request access.

High Frequency Words

I have some children this year who would benefit from learning sight words at various levels.

I'm a Nana!

Thanks to all of you who keep visiting my blog even though there hasn't been an update for a long while. I have a new person in my life who has kept me ever so busy over the last year - and I love it!
