I always wanted my word work for the week to be in one place, have meaning, and be engaging for the students.
So, I made it.
This is a perfect word work that includes making meaning through visualization of a poem. There is a word search. There are making word activities with the at - an - ug family.
Students can make an ap word family map!
There is a page of read - think - write - draw.
There is also a cover page so when students take the work home at the end of the week there is a family letter explaining the importance of looking for smaller chunks of words in bigger words as well as knowing and recognizing word families.
I used this in first grade!
