Focus on words

My kids need to practise reading common words (here in Aus we spell practise when we need to repeat things to learn them and spell practice when we talk about a Doctor's job or our own teaching way of doing things ie our practice)

So first up here is a pack that I did for my USA blogger buddies - in my TPT store and currently 30% off for the next day and a bit. 
Contents - 46 pages in total

Use these cards for flashcards as well as for the bingo cards
Each of the 12 sets of words have 6 bingo cards. (36 pages = 72 bingo board)
I use two sets of cards.
I keep one set permanently with the bingo cards.
The other set are in our word work tub to be used for other tasks.
Allow access to counters to cover words when called out.
There are also labels for you to place on containers or bags.
