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 2, week 1. 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 define, write the syllabication, and write the guide words on the dictionary page where they found the word, and write an original definition. Students will be tested on their knowledge of synonyms, antonyms, and parts of speech. They will also be asked to identify spelling and punctuation mistakes as well. 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 idea would be to place this activity sheet in a literacy center. Overall, this is a great way to assess your students understanding of the phonetic skill, word meaning, and evaluate their language arts skills at the same time.
This spelling activity sheet is also a part of a larger lesson plan bundle that includes everything I have created to go with this story. Please check out the other items I have created to round out your Wonders Curriculum Instruction. Thank you for considering my products. Be on the lookout for other items related to the Wonders series. THANK YOU!
I would like to give credit to the 3 a.m. teacher and Coffee Kids for the use of their digital graphics in my products!
