This "Making Words" activity is a sample from my whole product for you to try out risk free! This is perfect for your arrival back to school and will help you get your kids off to a great start regardless of their grade level.
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 of "Welcome Back to School", 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. I have only included a color copy for the sampler but the entire packet comes in both color and black and white versions for your printing preferences.
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!
If you love this, feel free to stop back and my store and download the entire package.
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,
