This activity was designed to be an Independent Practice worksheet for students to use to gain more exposure to their new weekly vocabulary/sight words. The activity is aligned to the Harcourt Trophies reading series. This story is found in Theme 4 of the reading series.
The students find and color each word, then graph their results using a tally chart.
I really like to focus on the reading skills that my first graders need, but this is an easy way to also incorporate a math standard within that reading practice. They LOVE graphing, so it is also a motivator :)
I primarily use this during morning work, but it could also be a great addition to a vocabulary/sight word center!
