Spring Has Sprung!

I had to redo all of my Dr. Seuss themed activities since Seuss Enterprises told Scrappin' Doodles that their clip art was a violation of copyright. Spring Has Sprung! Literacy Game is what I created from the Cat With a Hat Phonics Game. It's the same questions, just a new board! Click here to go go to my TPT store and get it!

Here is a NEW R-Controlled Vowels Word Sort as well! Click here!

Springtime Long Vowel Word Sort

NEW!! I just posted this "Springtime Long Vowel Word Sort" to my TPT store. Below is a little preview. Click here to find it at my TPT store for $2.25!!
