Trick-or-treat for Real & Nonsense Words! Use this fun & spooky resource to practice reading Real and Nonsense Words. Includes a Read Around the Room activity (or use as a literacy center) and a card game! Real words are all CVC words.
*Read Around the Room:
As a fun activity, tell students they are “trick-or-treating” for words around the room. Have word cards taped around the room. Students will walk around finding trick-or-treater nonsense words and write them on their recording sheets. This could also work as an assessment. Place cards in a pumpkin container or treat bag. Pull out cards one at a time, reading or displaying to students. Students will record words into the correct real or nonsense words column.
*Real & Nonsense word card game:
Students take turns reading real and nonsense Halloween themed words cards. (Optional game mats are provided to use for each student to organize their accumulating cards either real or nonsense categories as they play.)
Spider “EEK” and Ghost “BOO” cards are provided for a fun twist!
*12 trick-or-treater real & nonsense word cards
*vowel sorting work mats
