My students were struggling with "guide words". In that class I had several EL children who always seemed to learn better when working with a partner. This free packet contains 2 partner exercises (that can be done over 2 days after the teacher has taught a whole group mini lesson on guide words) and then a 2 page assessment that can be done on an individual basis (one more day). The partner activities can be done during literacy center time. By talking to each other and explaining their answers, the children finally caught on to guide words. I hope you enjoy it and can use it in your classroom!
