This is a fun literacy activity with a touch of math added in for your little ones.
“Color It, Count It, Graph It!” includes two pages for each of the following sets of Grade 1 Dolch words:
Set 1: after, again, an, any, as
Set 2: ask, by, could, every, fly
Set 3: from, give, going, had, has
Set 4: her, him, his, how, just
Set 5: know, let, live, may, of
Set 6: old, once, open, over, put
Set 7: round, some, stop, take, thank
Set 8: them, then, think, walk, were
Set 9: when; Review: under, want, what, little
Set 10: Review: pretty, please, must, have, said
Set 11: Review: where, there, who, were, here
The first page of each lesson invites the children to find and color the Dolch words using a color code. The children are then asked to count the number of times they colored each word and write it in the box provided. The second page asks the children to graph the number of times they found each word by coloring the sheep in the correct column and to name the word or words that appeared the most and the least.
This makes a great literacy center! Children are actively engaged in a useful activity, allowing the teacher quality time to work with groups of students during guided reading.
It may also be used during partner work, as independent practice, morning work, and more! This is a great activity for intervention groups also.
Thanks for looking!
