Looking for Meaningful and Engaging Word Work?

I created this pack and materials to make word study easier for the teacher to organize, but still meaningful and engaging for students. Many of these activities are perfect for center work. Additional materials are also included. These can be used as assessments, practice work, or even homework.

What is included in this pack?

• Word lists for short U
• Sort and Match- Students read the word and match the correct picture. Then, students can sort the cards by sound.
• Look and Write- Students write the word, using the picture clue.
• Just Dot It- Students use bingo daubers to color code words by pattern.
• Just Punch It- Students use a hole puncher to sort words by pattern.
• Sort page- Students can use these same words and mat all week and do blind sorts, partner sorts, and speed sorts. It can also be used as the assessment at the end of the week and students can glue down the words.
• Word Study Book- This is a simple two page book. Students will record their words, write sentences using three words of their choice, and then apply the spelling pattern to new words using picture cues.
• Assessment- traditional assessment including 9 words from the list, one unknown word that applies the pattern, and 2 dictation sentences. A teacher “script” is provided.
