Get your students up and moving around while they are gaining valuable literacy knowledge and skills. The intent of this package is to give students practice identifying words that start with target letters, copying the words down, and building vocabulary.
Students begin with a chosen key-word page (I like to have my students attach their page to a clip-board so that they have a hard surface to write on as they walk around the room). Students then walk around the room looking for words that start with each letter of the key-word. As they find a word they carefully copy it down onto their page.
You can also do this page by students thinking about and recording words they know for each letter of the key-word.
This activity is easily differentiated by choosing which page each student works on (i.e. more capable students use a key-word that is longer, while struggling students use a key-word that is shorter).
Teachers may choose to print out and laminate the color pages and let their students record their words right on that page. Once checked the page can be wiped clean and another student can use it. Or teachers may choose to print out the black and white pages so that they or the student may keep the finished copy.
