Routine practice of phonic rules, sight/high-frequency words, and word decoding skills are essential to literacy.
These February-themed activities are designed to allow for that practice and tons of fun. The Valentines, groundhog and Queen of Hearts visuals will help keep children engaged, while practicing some very important word attack and sentence building skills.
‘Lil Stinker Silly Sentences – Sentence building and parts of speech
Change a Phrase – Turn a phrase into a complete sentence
February Fix-A-Sentence – Editing for proper sentence parts and spelling.
Groundhog Wonderland Game – Practice Sight Words (teacher determines words)
Rhyme-Time with Groundhog Phil – Practice literacy using rhyme. Repetition of sounds help with decoding.
Two Vowels Go Walking – Vowel Pair Game
