Building Words in Summer
One literacy activity I love incorporating during phonics centers/work stations is “Building Words”. It gives students the opportunity to manipulate letters and sounds to create words.
Directions: Each sheet has a set of letter tiles on the bottom of the page. Students will cut out these tiles and manipulate them on the “work mat” to create different words. Each set also creates a master “mystery word” that uses all of the letters. Encourage students to build “real words” over “nonsense words” to stretch their brains and expand vocabulary. For differentiation, I’ve included a set of “word cards” and “picture cards” in case some students need an extra boost, at your discretion. I hope you enjoy this product & find it useful! :-)
