Treat your students to a fun view of phonics and learning new words with this three-part Fall Vocabulary Brain Teaser. In the first activity, PHONETIC FALL CONNECTIONS, the challenge is to translate into standard spelling the fifty-six phonetically spelled words and phrases that contain the word "fall" or are related to the fall season. The second and third sections, both entitled AWESOME AUTUMN, present a series of phonetic spellings, definitions, and descriptions that students can use to identify vocabulary words with the common sound of "awe." The first set of thirty-six items are every-day words. The second thirty-three item set, however, with terms such as "austere" and "raucous" will challenge the most ardent young word collector. The final activity is a writing graphic organizer about FALL TV.
Full answer keys are included for the three vocabulary activities. (Eight total pages.)
