I found this eck word family unit to be helpful and have used it in a variety of ways. You can use the unit for morning work, homework, small group work, centers and independent practice
or have a volunteer use it with students for reading intervention. This purchase is for the ack word family only. Get the GROWING BUNDLE Below!
It is easy to use and I have given several sample lesson outlines to help you implement it.
I have provided a homework letter if you choose to use it for homework and an instructional sheet to help guide parents. Both sheets also serve well if you will be having a volunteer use the activities with individual students.
Depending on when you use this unit and what grade will determine if it is an intervention unit, morning work, etc.
•Sight Word Fluency (Reading sight words in context)
•Sentence Structure: Simple sentences with repeated pattern. Word card for sight word in the unit have been provided for students to manipulate into a sentence and add a vocabulary word. Students can then copy there sentence into a journal or on a sheet of paper. Children write a sentence using the word family on one of the activity sheets. You can use that as an informal assessment.
•Vocabulary Building: Students say the picture names and write or manipulate word tiles in centers for word work (you can also use expo markers and clear sleeves instead of letter tiles).
•Sentence Level Comprehension: Students cut and paste pictures next to the matching sentence. Cross checking and beginning inferencing skills are practiced.
•Beginning Sounds: Students can practice placing a letter tile, magnetic tiles, or use expo markers and clear sleeves to place the beginning sound for the picture word on the work mat to match the picture.
•On-Set/Rhyme: Students work on word chunks (word families) with on-set rhyme by placing letter tiles, magnetic letters, or using an expo marker and clear sleeve to complete the work mat in word work or small group.
Each hands on activity can be followed with the worksheet that matches if you are not using it for homework , morning work, or a review packet.
It is great for teaching ESL/ELL students vocabulary, sentence structure, sight words, and rhyming. This unit includes all the sight words in the sentences so students can practice sentence structure by manipulating the cards and putting them in the correct order to form a simple sentence.
Each Set Includes:
5 Practice sheets ( I use one or 2 for informal assessments)
Intervention Instruction sheet and student sheet in color.
Sight word cards (matches the words in the pattern sentences).
