PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

These lessons are modeled after Patricia Cunningham's "Making Words" framework in which students are supported by their teacher to make a variety of words using only the letters in the "secret word" for that lesson.

For each of the four Making Words lessons in this Back-to-School set, you'll find a suggested list of words to build with your students, plus the Student Letter Tiles, the Teacher Word Cards, and a Student Sorting Sheet.

The Back-to-School words chosen for this set of lessons will allow you teach and reinforce vowel combinations, vowel sounds, blends, sight words, and more. The "SECRET WORDS" for these lessons are:
- teacher
- library
- friends
- student

(Directions are included.)

On  October 7, 2012,  Linda O. asked:
Hi Andrea,
Could you create some "Making Words" activities for autumn words and family words (family, mother, brother, etc). Some years that I teach I am not able to do Thanksgiving or Halloween activities due to religious concerns. Having some "Making Words" activities for other topics would be very helpful.
Thanks, Linda lott@telus.net

On  October 7, 2012Andrea Knight answered:
Hi Linda,

I can definitely make those... that's a great idea for teachers who aren't able to address holidays in their classrooms. Please look for them by mid-week. I should be able to have them done by then.

Thank you,
Andrea :)
