Everyone knows that an essential component to daily guided reading is word work! But how do you know what to teach at what level? The answer is here! Adapted from the popular professional resource, Next Steps in Guided Reading by Jan Richardson, I have created three activities that will support your phonics work; making words, sound boxes and picture sorts all focusing on beginning digraphs (ch/sh/th). If you are teaching a book for two days, your day one will allow you to pick any one of these activities to use with your small group. The activities are quick and shouldn't last more than 3-5 minutes. All the activities come in both color and b/w. Directions are included as well as an answer key. These activities could be consumable but you may want to print the sound boxes and picture sorts on cardstock and then laminate and keep them in a file or at a literacy center. Your choice but with these you will be able to keep the guess work out of the word work!
