This word building activity will be loved by all your students!
Expand-a-word is a word work activity I created to "expand" my students' collection of words.
Students will make as many words as they can by inserting letters in front, in between, and behind the three letters, without rearranging the order of the three letters.
Can be used for whole class or small group instruction, partners, individually, centers, enrichment homework, engaging 5 minute filler.
Perfect opportunity to introduce plurals, base words, prefixes/suffixes, spelling patterns, and new vocabulary!
