These Secret Word activities will build and enrich the vocabulary of your upper elementary students. 15 lessons use the letters of a language arts word as manipulatives for students to use while making words. Instead of spelling and phonics, the emphasis is on exposure to new vocabulary. It's especially great for small groups because so many "fancy" new words can be introduced in a very low stress and fun way. The Secret Word is most valuable as a teacher-directed, small-group activity, but the letters and student pages could also be used in literacy centers.
The thumbnails and preview show examples of one lesson. The resource includes detailed teacher directions on how to use The Secret Word to build vocabulary.
