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 the Inventory Unit of the reading series. Perfect for Independent work at the beginning of the school year!
The students find and color each word, then graph their results using a bar graph.
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!
