This spelling list was phonetically created using words from the story On the Pampas by Maria Cristina Brusca . The vocabulary words are also directly from the story. I have also created a set of vocabulary cards that can be used for a variety of activities: individual study, small groups, centers, whole group activities, etc. A list of possible activities is included. This is a great story to use for a unit on grasslands/savannas/pampas biome, South American studies, life on a ranch, etc.. The list and activities are suitable for 2nd - 4th grade, but could be adapted as needed.
