The activities in this printable are intended to supplement Houghton Mifflin Reading for Second Grade Theme 6. Included for each story are leveled syllabication, word sort, and ABC order activities. These activities are intended for independent, paired or small group instruction and make a great addition to your literacy centers or work stations!
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, 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:
The Art Lesson-vowel pairs oo,ew,ue, ou
Moses Goes to a Concert- long i (igh and ie)
The School Mural-words with -ed, -ing endings (drop the final e)
* one word list is used for both of
