Many of the pages are geared for use with 10 words. However, if you are working with a list that has more than 10 words, the children can simply choose which words they would like to use on that particular day. (They love being able to decide for themselves, and, because they get to skip some of the words during that activity, they feel like they are getting away with something!!)
The pages may be used in any order and can be used again and again because your word lists change throughout the month. They require little or no preparation by the teacher. Simply rotate the activity pages and watch your little ones become immersed in the learning process with these fun activities!
It’s fast, fun, easy, and effective... especially during this busy time of year!
Great for independent and partner work during guided reading!
