The activities in this printable are intended to supplement Houghton Mifflin Reading for second grade Theme 3 . These activities make a great addition to your literacy centers, work stations, or small group instruction! Included for each story are leveled syllabication, word sort, and ABC order activities.
For each of the 4 stories I've included: 2 sets of tiered cut and sort word cards, a sort and record sheet, and 2 tiered alphabetizing activity sheets. Tier 1 cards contain one and two-syllable words, while tier 2 cards contain two, three, and four syllable words. Students identify and highlight the target phonics pattern (what child doesn't LOVE a highlighter!), divide the words into syllables, then cut out, sort and glue the words to their corresponding recording sheet. Students then alphabetize their words on a separate response sheet. Directions, extension activities, and answer keys are included.
Stories and corresponding phonics skills:
Chinatown-words with th,sh,wh,ch(tch)
A Trip to the Firehouse-words with ai,ay
Big Bushy Mustache- words with ow,ou
Jamaica Louise James-words with ee, ea
