This activity has been designed to enhance student understanding for using high frequency words as per the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Similarly, it has been adapted to correlate with the HMH Journeys Reading Series. It can be used as both a direct instruction activity or as skill practice at a literacy station or reading center.
The purchased document contains eight (8) high-frequency word cards and eight (8) corresponding sentence cards. The sentences are different from those presented in the student edition as this will provide students with alternate practice of the word in order to increase knowledge of correct usage.
The cards can be cut and used by each student or printed on cardstock, laminated, and used cooperatively by a small group prior to the student completing a corresponding activity.
