Add a little color to your spelling practice with this “Fill-Ins, Sentences, and Stories” word packet. There are three pages that supplement each of the eight stories from the Harcourt Trophies Grade One Reading Series (Book 4).
The stories included are:
“A Bed Full of Cats”
“Me on the Map”
“At Home Around the World”
“Tell Me a Story”
“On the Job with Dr. Martha Smith”
“Little Bear’s Friend”
“Busy Buzzy Bee”
The first page asks the students to read the sentences provided and decide which spelling word is missing. Students write the correct word using colored pencils or crayons (following the color code at the top of the page). This page makes great independent or partner work during guided reading. It works well for homework, too.
The second page requires the students to choose 5 of their spelling words provided in the box at the top of the page and use each word correctly in a sentence. Students really enjoy choosing which words they are going to use.
A third page is provided for those students who are capable of writing interesting stories using all of the spelling words. (My one reading group just loves this! They come up with very creative stories and enjoy reading them to others.)
You can use one, two, or all three pages throughout the week. I use page 1 with all students (some students work independently and others work with me in small groups).
I use pages 2 and 3 for differentiated instruction during my guided reading time.
Great for early finishers, too!
