This interactive SMART Board lesson is based on Making Words by Patricia Cunningham and Dorothy Hall.
This lesson focuses on the -ay word family, but includes a study of many other word families as well.
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.
Included in the digital file is the Notebook Making Words lesson, lesson instructions with common core standards, and printable letters. Skills: spelling, phonics, rhyming words, word families, and spelling strategies.
THIS LESSON IS A MUST-DO FOR ALL ELEMENTARY TEACHERS as a part of a systematic, sequential language arts program. I hope you enjoy!
