This is a fun and challenging activity for first grade students. I use this packet during center time. It could also be used for homework or morning work. The instructions for the students are:
1. Read the word
2. Cut and paste the correct letter tiles next to the word
3. Write the word in your best handwriting
4. If you finish early, practice reading and spelling each word on your own or with a buddy
Although there are many letter tiles my students do not have trouble keeping track of them. They LOVE the challenge. I hope your students enjoy the activity as much as mine do!
This packet includes two Read It, Build It, Write It activities for each spelling list in unit 5 (lessons 21-25) of the 2012 Journeys Reading Series. In order to accommodate for the larger spelling lists in unit 5, each list was broken into 2 parts with six words per worksheet. This makes the amount of letter tiles more manageable for the students. In addition, this unit pack includes two versions of each worksheet. One version has writing lines, and the other does not so you can pick the one that is best for your students!
