This "Making Words" activity is just what you need when you head back to school. This is perfect for August/September. Included you will find five different lessons including: Goodbye to Summer, Welcome Back to School, My Grandparents Rock, Spectacular September, and Autumn is Here.
All you need to do is add a set of magnetic letters to your magnetic surface, gather your students around with a pencil, their copy, and a clipboard. Call students up to the board one at a time to create a word from the magnetic phrase posted on your board. Record words as a group on their recording sheets. Color and B&W versions are available based on your preference.
This activity can be perfect for just about any grade level. Just focus on some skill that is age appropriate.
K- sight words
1- cvc words, sight words, and changing out beginning, middle, or end sound.
2- word families (if you know the word man, then you can make the word ran)
3- multi-syllabic words, prefixes/suffixes
Once you incorporate this activity into your regular routine, students can work on this independently at centers, when finishing early, with parent volunteers, or any other way you can think of that works for your classroom. In addition, it is a very low prep activity that will keep your kids engaged when hosting a sub or guest teacher. Your sub will thank you!
As always, I greatly appreciate any feedback and ratings you leave me in my store. It helps me when creating new products, and you will earn TPT credits towards future purchases.
Happy Word Making,
