In the CKLA/ EngageNY curriculum, students gain practice using rainbow writing with individual letters. The following 208 words are decodable words after completing the letters taught in Unit 5 of Skills (/m/, /a/, /k/, /d/, /t/, /o/, /i/, /g/, /h/, /n/, /f/, /v/, /s/, /z/, /p/, /b/, /l/, /r/, /u/, /w/, /j/, /y/, /x/ & /k/).
Direct students to write each word in one color crayon, then switch colors and trace the word a second time. Repeat until the words look like rainbows!
I use these as an independent center during Skills/ ELA. Students are so engaged that they stay on task and it is simple enough for all levels of learners!
