Help your students learn to read and spell the Benchmark Advance 1st grade HFW with this fun hands-on activity! There are 124 pattern block mats included - 2 mats per page. These HFW are from the 2018 national version of the Benchmark Advance curriculum.
Print the building brick mats and laminate for durability. Place the mats you would like students to work on in a literacy center or morning work tub with a basket of building bricks and a building base plate. You can also hole punch in the top left corner of each word mat and put on a binder ring. Instruct students to use the mats as a guide to build the words. The mats are not sized to scale, meaning students cannot place the bricks on top of the words. If you would like students to write the words when they are finished building them, there is a recording sheet included. I like to put this in a page protector and have students use dry erase markers to write their words.
