Are you excited that your district is purchasing the new Journeys Common Core 2014 Reading Series? If you teach first grade, this spelling packet will be perfect in your class. In this packet you will find several spelling activities to use with UNIT 5 in the Houghton Mifflin Journeys Common Core 2014 Reading Series. You can pick and choose which activities you use each week. Pick your favorites and use them every week, or mix it up and use different activities each week. These activities can be used as seatwork, in literacy centers, small groups, or whole group. Some are teacher led, while others are good for independent work. There are several activities that your students can do while you are working with guided reading groups. You may want to make enough copies for each student, or copy enough for a literacy center, laminate, and use as write on/wipe off lessons. The activities included are listed below. If you have any questions please email me, Beth Miller (The Smartie Factory) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
