This word work packet includes 14 making word activities focusing on the holidays throughout the school year. The holiday is at the top of the page and the students must use the letters in the word to make smaller words. It is so much fun and the students will love it! The holidays or special days included are:
Happy New Year
St. Patrick's Day
Cinco de Mayo
It is ease to differentiate these activities for the different levels in your classroom. Some students might just be able to look at the words and find new words, while others may need to cut out the letters so that they can manipulate the letters to make words. One more extension is for the students to use the words that they find and write them in a sentence on the back of the page. This is an activity that I use with all of my students, regardless of their level, and they are all able to be successful and have fun!
I have used these activities for morning work, seat work, literacy centers, and early finishers. I usually have the students work on these activities for multiple days at a time.
