Bundle and $ave on leveled word work! Stuck on what to teach for word work other than a sight word? That can be challenging but I have the solution!
This product contains all the word work for students reading on Fountas & Pinell levels A-C, perfect for pre-k, kindergarten or early first graders. However, everyone has a range of learners no matter what grade you teach! Therefore, this product would benefit newcomers to English (ELLs) at any grade.
At each level the students will have three major components:
Picture Sorts, Making Words and Sound Boxes with pictures. At each level, there is a change.
- Level A- Picture Sorts focus on initial consonants and medial long vowels; The picture sorts also contain pictures with long vowel sounds (medial). Also, included are the procedures for completing a picture sort and a picture sort mat; one side has sorting for two letters and the other for three letters.There are over 200 picture cards for initial consonants and 60 picture cards for the medial vowel sort.
- Level B-Picture Sorts focus on short medial vowels so student begins to hear the middle sound; With picture sorts the kids will sort pictures by the medial short vowel. Also, included are the procedures for completing a picture sort and a picture sort mat; one side has sorting for two letters and the other for three letters. There are over 60 picture cards for medial short vowels. Both sets contain color and black and white pictures. I would keep the color set (after I laminated on card stock) in a file box for quick access. The black and white set can be used for kids to have extra practice with an aide or at home with a parent.
- Level C-Picture Sorts –This level uses all the vowels allows you to take any combination of 2 vowels and have your students sort by sound-a/e;a/i,a/u,a/o and so forth. I created a file box and separated them out by letter so I can grab and go.
All picture sorts come in color and black and white and can be used in small group or as follow up work to the small group. Sorting mat included!
- Level A Making Words-using letter tiles to make rhyming words by changing initial consonants. At this level, kids will be making up to four words and changing the initial consonant. The words will rhyme and will help with phonemic awareness. There are 10 lessons to choose from and each comes with a lesson format and letter tiles for up to six kids in a group.
- Level B Making Words-At these levels kids will be making up to four words and changing the initial or final consonant or both. There are 10 lessons to choose from and each comes with a lesson format and letter tiles for up to six kids in a group.
- Level C-Making Words-At this level kids will make new words by changing the initial, medial, and final letters. Example: can-cap-map-mop-top-tip. Eleven lessons included and formatted so that there are enough materials for six students.
- Level A-Sound Boxes This level will have you dictate two phonemes, one being a long vowel. Students segment sounds by pushing markers (included) into a box; one per sound. Then they are encouraged to write the letter each sound makes in the box. Lessons included.
- Level B-Sound Boxes are available for you to dictate two phonemes, one being a short vowel. Students segment sounds by pushing markers (included) into a box; one per sound. They are encouraged to write the letter each sound makes in the box. There is a list of words to dictate included in this product.
- Level C-Sound Boxes allow your students to segment the words while associating the words with pictures. You will be using sound boxes that have pictures and you will name the picture. Students will “tap” out on a table the number of sounds in a word and then write the letter in each box. These are especially useful because they contain a picture making it beneficial for ELLs who are learning English.
This bundle will surely help you help your kids to make great strides as they move through levels. You have everything you need to have solid, meaningful word work that builds from one level to the next.
This word work is adapted and modeled after best practices in literacy.
