Spelling and Vocabulary activities to go along with all 30 stories from Fourth Grade Reading Street series. These activities give several opportunities to practice the spelling words in a variety of ways.
As they go through the activities, students make connections with other language concepts such as alphabetization, synonyms, antonyms, syllables, short/long vowel sounds, analogies, word meaning, compound words, homophones, rhymes, etc. Each lesson includes a short activity using the vocabulary words from the reading selection.
Thumbnails and preview are from Navajo Code Talkers; Preview for BOOM Cards is from Because of Winn Dixie.
⚠️NOTE: This resource will include additional fun activities using Digital Task Cards (Boom Cards) for each of the spelling lists! I have already added Boom Cards for Units 1 - 3, and I am working on the rest of the units. They will be ready for you to access by the time you need them. Check back for updates!**
❓ Don't need digital task cards? No worries! You can still get the original bundle that includes only printable materials. You can grab them HERE.
These lessons are also available individually and in unit bundles, but this full-year bundle will offer the biggest savings!
