Need to help your students practice dictionary skills?! This unit is an extension of my Dictionary Skills: Guide Words unit for primary grades! The words chosen for this unit are geared toward upper elementary students (3rd, 4th, & 5th). The unit includes three sets of word cards. Each set has four pairs of guide words and six words that go with each pair of guide words. Each set is color coded by the color of the monster. You can use the sets in many ways: As a literacy work station or independent activity where the students sort the words under the correct guide word pair, or as a scoot around the room where the word cards are hidden around the classroom- your choice! It can also be used a whole group activity or with small guided reading groups! Each set of cards come with separate recording sheets for your students to use. Enjoy!
