This is an activity sheet that correlates with the Open Court Reading series. This activity sheet aligns with the spelling words found in Unit 1, week 6.
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 look in a dictionary and locate the syllabication, part of speech, and guide words from a dictionary . Students asked to read a sentence including one of their spelling words and identify its part of speech. Finally, students are asked to create original sentences using a spelling word and a prepositional phrase. Students are also asked to identify word pairs as synonyms and antonyms.
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 activity 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 Open Court Instruction. Thank you for considering my products. Be on the lookout for other items related to the Wonders series. THANK YOU!
