MAKING WORDS: Let's Talk Turkey Literacy Center
Let’s Talk Turkey Literacy Center
is a making words activity that is well suited to individual effort or small group instruction. Give each student the letter tiles for one of the 8 seasonal words or phrases: TURKEY, THANKSGIVING, PILGRIMS, MAYFLOWER, FEAST, NATIVE AMERICANS, HARVEST. Challenge them to create as many words as they can using that set of letters. A recording sheet is provided.
Copy the letter tiles on cardstock, laminate, and cut apart. The act of manipulating the letter tiles is especially important for young students who must learn to form words concretely before acquiring the abstract concepts. Each word is presented in a different color, making it easier to sort and identify the letters for each set.
A label for your center folder is included, as is a direction placard to post at the literacy center. A blackline recording sheet master is also provided. This unit is aligned with the CCSS.
