I introduce to you my most popular district creation----the Letter Hunts!
This document includes 6 PDFs. Each PDF contains a collage of real world text that focus on a set of phonics skills. You can use this document in multiple ways, whether it be a.) displaying the PDF on a Smartboard, b.) have students highlight all the words that align with a specific phonics skill, or c.) as I have my 2nd graders do, have students highlight the phonemically aligned words and write them in a blank Word Work Journal.
Kids LOVE these!
Here's what you'll receive in this package:
Page 1- The Fizzle Rule- for those unfamiliar with this rule, the Fizzle Rule states that when a short vowel is followed by an -f, -s, -z, or -l, you double the consonant.
Page 2- ck- Students will find short vowel words ending with -ck.
Page 3-ch and sh- Students will find words containing -sh and -ch
Page 4-qu, th, with a side of wh- Students will find words containing -qu and -th. There may even be a -wh in there. For an extra challenge, have students separate their words into: words beginning with -th and -qu, words with -th and -qu in the middle, and words ending with -th.
Page 5- the return of qu with -wh- Students will find words containing -qu and -wh. Look closely...you may see your old friend -ch!
Page 6- attack of the digraphs!!!- Students will hunt for words with -th, -qu, -wh, -ch and -sh
Please note that I docuscanned these documents into the computer which means you may see a little glare off some of the words.
I hope you enjoy these as much as the 1st and 2nd graders in my district love them! Happy Hunting!
