"Making Words: Real or Nonsense?" contains 23 word building reproducibles that include a variety of letters and sounds for first grade. Children will practice using beginning and ending consonants, short vowels, long vowels, and r-controlled vowels to make words and determine if they are real or not. These reproducibles incorporate phonics, vocabulary, spelling practice, and word families (rhyming words). Dictionary skills can also be incorporated for children to determine if words are real or not. They are great to use for literacy centers, independent work, or homework.
The purchase of this activity guide entitles an individual teacher or parent to reproduce pages for use in a classroom or home. Reproduction for use in an entire school or school system or for commercial use is prohibited.
This is such a great resource! I can't wait to use it with my students!

This is just what I need for my young readers. The brief description lets parents understand the power of nonsense words, and the repetitive directions lets the kids focus on the letters and sounds, not the directions on the pages. A fantastic resource for my first graders.
