New Packet - Making Words - CRAFTY Series Party Plug!
Hi guys! I've been hard at work to create a great language arts resource for you all! I used to love doing these types of activities when I was younger... but I was also caught constantly completing puzzles. This resource is called Making Words.
There are 80 different word sheets in this packet. In this activity, students are handed a paper. The first thing they must do is color their vowels yellow. This points out that students know the difference between vowels and consonants. Next, students then cut out the letters at the bottom of the page. For students who have difficulty with fine motor skills, this is a good resource as they have to cut out their letters in square shapes. After they have cut out their letters, students will then begin making words out of the letters they have.
For example, if the word is SEPTEMBER, here are some example words that can be made:
These are just a few examples of the words students can come up with. This not only gives them practice with their spelling, but it also helps with phonemic awareness. Students hear, think about, and identify the phonemes, which is important when learning how to read. This activity can be used during centers, as morning work for when students come in daily, or even as an assessment.
In my TPT store, you will find that there is a preview of this product should you want to check out the kind of work I do. If you enjoy what you see, please feel free to add it to your cart!
