I created this phonogram smartboard file for Word Work in my first grade classroom. I use the Daily Five and this station was consistently the loudest. This new smartboard Word Work has helped a lot! The students really enjoy sliding and sorting the words. They have caught on fairly quick to the word families and have started applying these to their everyday reading.
I use this to help teach common word families. The word families on included are –ore, -ace, -ide, -ime, -ole, -one, -ile, -ite, -ay, -an, -at, -ake, -ar, -igh, -or, -aw, -ade, -ame, -ale, -ate, -ose, -ope, -ine, and –ice. After the students have learned one slide worth of the sounds (4), I have the students work in pairs during Word Work. They take turns sliding each word into the correct column while saying the word. Once they have sorted all the words, they have the choice of either writing them on a dry erase board, paper or building them with magnetic letters.
Good luck and happy Word Work!!
