This is an activity sheet that correlates with the McGraw Hill Wonders Reading series. This activity sheet aligns with the spelling words found in Unit 4, week 3. A variety of activities are included in this sheet. Students are asked to use the words in a sentence. Directions are given for students to include each of the 4 different types of sentences. Students are asked to locate spelling and grammatical errors like an editor. Students will be required to read a sentence containing a spelling word. They will need to use context clues to identify the part of speech of the homograph. Students will also be required to read a pair of words and identify if they are synonyms or antonyms. This will require students to be familiar with both homograph meanings in order to correctly identify the correct relationship. Finally, students are asked to create original sentences using alliteration. This will be a fun challenging activity for students! They will be able to use either homograph meaning in an effort to create their example of alliteration. This activity sheet may be given on Monday and required to be completed by the end of the week. It would also be appropriate for portions of it to be done in class or in partners. An additional use of this activity sheet could be to place it in a literacy center. Overall, this is a great way to assess your students understanding of the word meaning, and evaluate their language arts skills at the same time.
