These 3 activities encourage students to chunk words (e.g. sm-ell), and find chunks of words from the book they are currently reading. The final activity is an extension activity that gives students made-up words. The students must chunk the word, make up a pretend meaning for the word and then draw it.
These activities are great fun- my Grade 1/2 gifted and talented classes have enjoyed these activities in the past.
NOTE: These activities were designed to go with my "Chunking- Reading Strategy for sounding out words" PowerPoint presentation which is for sale separately ($1 cost). However, these activity sheets can be used with or without the PowerPoint presentation very effectively.
