Guided Reading Word Work for Levels H/I
This product contains word work for students reading on Fountas & Pinell’s guided reading levels H/I. At these level students use analogies to problem-solve during reading with teacher’s support. Students also learn to use known vowel patters during reading and writing with support as well as adding simple endings (-s, -ed, -ing, -er) and to phonetically segment words with double and triple blends in the initial and final place in a word. I have included sound boxes with pictures, which is great for all kids but especially ELLS, who can tie meaning to the word by using the pictures. There are six sound box lessons that come in both color and black lined. I have included Making Words activities that include eight lessons. The lessons are formatted on 3x5 size cards and can be printed and stored in a file box or hole punched and kept on a binder ring. Also, included in this product are letters for the lessons. There are two sheets of consonant letters (upper and lower case together) which I would copy on colored cardstock or copy paper, laminate and cut. When printing make sure to set your options to print of both sides on the LONG EDGE. This way you will have the uppercase letters matched with the lowercase on the back. There is also a page of uppercase and lowercase vowels and digraphs. I would copy both the vowels and digraphs on separate colors as well. Lastly, I have included word endings (-es, ed, ing) that are colored and are on one tile to show they are endings. One more component to this set of letters is I focused on vowel patterns and so the following are included and are in color to stand out: -ay, -all, -ar, -or, -ee, -oo, -er, -ir, -ur, and ow. If you have ever used Touch Phonics, I borrowed the idea from that intervention. The letters are together because they make one unique sound and visually it is easy for kids to see that. They are in lowercase only but I made two sets so that if you want you can copy them back to back.
This set of letters would be for one student. I would make six sets and then store them in file boxes with alphabetical dividers and adding in dividers for digraphs. By doing this you will have all the letters you need for the lessons here or any other Making Words lessons. Personally, I made a set for every child in my class as I would do Making Words with not only small group by whole group as well.
Lastly, there are analogy charts included in this product. Students use analogy charts to sort words by their vowel patterns, including ar, ay, ee, ea, ow, ay, oo, and more.
There are three levels in this product:
• Level 1 is the easiest because the kids are changing the onset by using different blends
• Level 2 is a little more difficult because the words now have endings
• Level 3 is most challenging because the words are multisyllabic and the kids need to hear each part in an effort to spell them.
Within each level there are three activities. You can reproduce the t-charts and dictate the corresponding words and then the students write the word under the correct header OR you can give each student the word cards and they can read and sort the words and glue them under the correct header. Another option would be to dictate the words, have the students write them and then give the word cards to them to glue down as independent work.
A last option could be to laminate the charts and charts and keep them at a literacy center.
These word work activities are perfect for readers on levels H or I.
You will want to choose one of these activities each time you meet with this group. These activities should be no longer than seven minutes and will give you a lot of bang for your buck! The activities included here are adapted after Jan Richardson’s book, The Next Step in Guided Reading.
