This Making Words activity asks students to glue together onsets & rimes to make works that have the Short A pattern. This activity includes both an easier set (with CVC words, bigger pieces, rhyming words) and a more challenging set (with CVCV words, blends, and smaller pieces).
In my classroom I use this as an independent activity, offering guidance as needed to my lower level word study group. Students first cut all the pieces out and put them in a bag for morning work. During Word Study they glue them together using a glue stick in their Word Study Notebook.
Enjoy! Ms. Galan
