Guide Words- Included are 14 practice pages and 18 sort activities differentiated at 3 levels for small group work, independent practice, or whole group instruction.
Dictionary guide words are difficult for students. I have found students are more successful when I scaffold the instruction. First, students must be able to alphabetize. Then, I teach guide words to the second letter. Then, I teach how to use guide words to the third letter. Once students have mastered these skills, they are ready for more challenging practice. Each of these skill levels are included in this packet.
