This interactive SMART Board lesson is based on Making Words by Patricia Cunningham and Dorothy Hall.
In the first step, students make words from smallest to largest, in step two, students sort words based on common words families, and in step three, students apply the skills they learned to read and spell new words.
This lesson focuses on the -ale word family, but includes many other word families as well.
This preview lesson includes one complete lesson, as well as instructions with common core standards and a complete walkthrough showing how to complete a Making Words lesson. This preview download also includes a complete set of letters for use with the activity. I hope you enjoy!
Skills: spelling, phonics, rhyming words, word families, and spelling strategies.
This lesson is a MUST DO for all primary teachers
