A collection of 9 stations, plus handwriting practice, that help students learn and independently practice the /or/ sound.
This includes a student choice board with files and directions for accompanying station activities and a formative assessment.
The stations include activites such as a Create a Book, "Shuck the Corn" Riddles, Cube Game and more. These stations are designed to be used for one week where students select one station per day or could also be used for two weeks in which all stations will be completed by the end of two week period.
The open nature of the activities allows for differientiated levels to be met with your students while working on the same concept.
Station 1: Book - Students create their own
-or book by writing sentences using the concept. There is a place to add illustrations.
Station 2: -or Categories Game - Read the clues and guess the -or words. Label and illustrate.
Station 3: -or Bingo!- Label each picture. If the picture uses -or, color it. When you find 3 -or words in a row...you have a BINGO!
Station 4: Cube Game - Roll the -or cube. Think of a word that uses -or, and add it to your game board. The 1st board filled in...wins!
Station 5: "The Storm is Coming!" Reader - Students apply phonics skills (including -or) to read this original take home mini-book.
Station 6: Word Search- Students read the words on the word list, write a short definition for each, illustrate them, and find them in the word search. Great for your higher level kiddos!
Station 7: -or/-ar Picture or Toy Sort- Sort the pictures onto the correct "r controlled vowel"side. Label each picture. Words include 1,2,and 3 syllable words to challenge the kids.
Station 8: "Shuck the Corn" Riddles - Cut out the corn and corn husk strips. Write an -or word on the corn. Write clues on the corn husks strips to help your friends guess the word on your corn. Then have your friends read the clues and peel away the husks to reveal your -or word!
Station 9: Make it, Paint, it, Tear it! - Students may create any -or item by painting a picture, torn paper art, or by using various art materials to come up with their own creative masterpiece. They use their creation as inspiration to write a fiction or non-fiction story.
Awesome! So glad to hear! Thanks for the feedback!

Lots of good ideas to implement. Examples for the corn husking activity would have been appreciated. Love the cube game. Simple words, but we can add more complex ones.
Can your kindergartners really read the clues to the words? Must be reading whizzes!
Thanks so much! We will add some pictures when we get to this pack. Hope you didn't have too much trouble with it. We made and used this pack at the end of last school year and many of our kiddos could read. The kiddos who could not read either chose a different station, had a friend read, or had the teacher help read. Thanks again for the feedback!
