Here is an activity using Dolch First grade words that your students will love. These pages can be used several ways. Play a reading game or make the pages into a large or small book.
To play the game:
Print out the pages with 6 on a page. Cut the pages apart and put all the cards in a pocket chart. Put the A - E cards are on the top row and 1-6 cards are in the first column. Put the monster cards behind a few of the word cards and watch the students go. They love reading the cards and finding the monsters.
To print books:
Print 2 to a page front and back. Then cut in half, put the bottom half under the top and the then staple.
To make smaller books print 6 to a page and cut off the top and bottom margins and then cut in thirds. Put the three sections together then fold each page and staple.
There are pages with sentences and pictures and then there are the same sentences on pages without pictures. Use the ones with the pictures in the beginning then after the students have had success, use the ones without the pictures to reinforce the words.
