Easy Readers from RRSP

If you are using, or have used, Raising Rock Stars Preschool, I am sure you are familiar with the easy readers included with each unit.  We will be using RRSP again in about a year with Ladybug, so planning is on my mind again!  I have started converting the small printable easy readers into the larger format to be read on iPads and other digital readers! 

My kids have enjoyed the themed easy readers I have made for them, and I really wanted to have the RRSP set available too, when the time comes for Ladybug to read them!  I hope this updated set will help many of you who are using RRSP also.  Even if you aren’t using RRSP, I hope your early readers will enjoy them!

I made a special section on the Easy Readers webpage just for the RRSP Easy Readers.  I am putting them in ABC order, meaning which letter unit the correlate with. {Who Ran Away? goes with unit A, They are Playing goes with unit B, In the Basket goes with unit C, etc.}

Happy Reading!



Bible Verse Memory Checklists for RRSP & RRSK

A reader asked me if I would make a chart that had all of the RRSP Bible verses on it, and I thought it was a fabulous idea, so I did!  RRS VERSE CHECKLIST

I also included one that says “Kindergarten” at the top for those of you who have kids using RRSK.  They are both in the same file.

You can download these for free here on the main RRSP page, just scroll down and look for the graphic to find the file!image

Understanding RRSP, YCR, and MO

This post was originally written in September 2011, and was updated in June 2014.

I know, I know…I have weird names and sometimes things on my site are hard to understand. It seems that the paid items I offer tend to be the most confusing and I can understand why. I hope this post explains a bit more about what they are and include.

#1 Members Only PowerPoint Section {often referred to as MO}

1 members only2

The MO section should have a better name, I know. When I launched it, I was new and just came up with a generic name. In hindsight, I should have been more specific and named it something like POWERPOINT SHOWS. I think it would cause even more confusion if I changed the name now, so I will just keep explaining it to new people!

The Members Only PowerPoint section is $15 to join and is a LIFETIME membership. There is no recurring fee. It is a one time payment and then you have access to a link/password and can download any shows I create. I have a details page showing you exactly what is there currently.

In addition to the PP shows, there is a section where the RRSP {Raising Rock Stars Preschool} lessons are linked up, and there is an entire series of PowerPoint shows just for RRSP. This is where the confusion comes in. Many people think the MO section is the RRSP section. It just hosts the PowerPoint shows for RRSP.

So in a nutshell think POWERPOINT SHOWS when you think Members Only!

 


#2 You Can Read Bundle {abbreviated YCR, sometimes just called “ad-free”}

You Can Read Button 200x200

 

The bundle includes 18 base sight word units + color words and number words. There are also several bonus items which are only available on the ad-free bonus page. I have many units available for free, you can see those here.

The You Can Read Ad-Free/Bonus Section is $10, and is also a one time fee. You get a link/password and can save it and come back to download at any time. You will also have unlimited access to any bonus YCR items I add in the future!

 


#3 RRSP Bundle {Raising Rock Stars Preschool}

RRSP Bundle Collage

This is my most recent addition and is basically a glorified and simple version of the printable RRSP units. I worked hard to bundle them up in a neat and organized folders and also added several bonus printables to the new download bundle! You can see details about the bonus materials that were added here.

The RRSP Download Bundle is $10 and with the one time fee you get a link/password where you can download your 2 folders {1 for base units and 1 for extras}. I will also add any other bonus printables to this webpage so you can come back in the future.

There is a RRSP Bundle DISCOUNT available in the Members Only section. So, if you join the MO section, you can then purchase the RRSP Bundle for just $8.

All base RRSP units are available for FREE here, just scroll down until you see the blue section with the letters in it!

 


#4 RRSK Bundle

Why sell anything?

Why not give it all for free as a majority of my printables are {Preschool Packs, Tot Packs, Clip & Learn, Montessori Printables, Preschool Printables, Kindergarten Printables, Tot School Printables, & more}?

I believe 100% in giving as much as I can away for free in order to serve others. When my blog began to grow years ago, and take time away from my family, my husband and I prayed about what to do. At the time I was studying the Proverbs 31 woman using this awesome study guide book. We prayed for a long time and then ventured into learning about selling a few things online to supplement our missionary income. We felt this was where God was leading us and we have been truly blessed! My blog is both a service to others and a service to my family by alleviating some of the financial strain that we have been through in the past. My blog is something my entire family gets excited about and is on board with. Especially my husband and my oldest son!

If you are in a financial situation that makes you completely unable to consider paying for any of my paid items, but you feel they would benefit your family…please email me. I don’t want anyone to be without something that could help their family.


I hope that helps you understand what I sell, why I sell it, and what you will get when you make a purchase!

PS-If you have ANY problems downloading or printing any of my PDF files, please see my FAQ section and be sure to go to the Facebook link in the last bullet point for troubleshooting tips. I get emails about this almost daily! I don’t mind helping you, but it usually takes me awhile to get back to you and I don’t want anyone to be frustrated!

~the lessons online now for free are still free, the bundle is an additional option for users to purchase for easier and more organized access.

~The printable bundle is entirely separate from the Members Only PowerPoint section which features PowerPoint lessons.

Again, I can’t thank you enough for the purchases many of you make of the few things I do sell.  It is still a struggle to keep the balance between earning and giving.  I pray my balance is what God desires.  THANK YOU for your support, we really, really appreciate it!



Raising Rock Stars Preschool ~ Bundle Extras

I have been working hard behind the scenes to *bundle* up the Raising Rock Stars Preschool Curriculum and I am finally done!  In the process of bundling the program up I decided to add in a few extras and change a few things to make the printable program easier to work with and prepare.

Editable Lesson Plan…

I am very excited to include the new and improved {thanks to my great friend Jolanthe} editable RRSP lesson plan.  You open the PDF file, type in your information AND you can save it!!!!

Popsicle Stick Prop Bundle…

I bundled up all of the popsicle stick props so you can print them all off at once, laminate, and cut.  This will save tons of paper, laminating film, and prep time!!!  I am all about finding ways to save $ and time and I hope this simple file will really help you with this!

ABC Tracing Cards…

I added a file of different letter tracing cards for review. I gave three different options, each containing a full printable set.  ABC Tracing Cards

 

New Intro Sheet for each Lesson…

I added a new intro sheet which tells you the focus letter, shape, sight word, and color.  It also tells you the lesson # {based on how the program was designed}.  There is also a link straight to the blog post I wrote for that unit so you can see what other ideas I added in easily.  I also provided a link to the website in case you want to see the suggested music and supplemental books for the unit.RRSP letter Aa 1

 

Master RRSP at a Glance…

This is actually the spreadsheet I used as I was designing the program and I filled it in as I went along.  Now that it is done, I cleaned up the file and saved it in case anyone found it helpful.  It shares all of the details for each unit all on one sheet.RRSP Master Spreadsheet 1

 

FAQ & Helpful Links…

I included the FAQ found here, plus a few more.  I also added 2 pages including the links that I thought would be most helpful to have all in one place.

Sample Lesson Plan…

I have been asked a few times if I had the sample lesson plan that is available here online, in printable format.  I do now!  It is the same info as you can find online, just condensed into a pdf file.
