The activities in this printable are intended to supplement Houghton Mifflin Reading for Second Grade Theme 4. Included for each story are leveled syllabication, word sort, and ABC order activities. These activities make a great addition to your literacy centers centers, work stations, or small group instruction!
For each of the stories I've included: 2 sets of tiered cut and sort word cards, a sort and record sheet, and 2 tiered alphabetizing activity sheets. Tier 1 cards contain one and two-syllable words, while tier 2 cards contain two, three, and four syllable words. Students identify and highlight the target phonics pattern (what child doesn't LOVE a highlighter!), divide the words into syllables, then cut out, sort and glue the words to their corresponding recording sheet. Students then alphabetize their words on a separate response sheet. Directions, extension activities, and answer keys are included.
Stories and corresponding phonics skills:
Officer Buckle and Gloria-r-controlled vowels ar, or, ore
Ant-words with nd, ng, nk, nt, mp
The Great Ball Game- vowel pairs oa, ow
