This packet can be used as a Word Work Literacy Station after closed 2 syllable words have been taught.
The students match the trains to make words. The engine is the first syllable and the train car is the second syllable. If you teach Wilson Fundations in first grade, this is taught in Unit 12 of the 2nd Edition.
After they match the words, the students pick 3 words and write sentences for each word to demonstrate vocabulary knowledge. This page is optional. It is in a second slide and can be run off and then placed on the back of the student’s worksheet. There is also directions for the students to read their words and sentences to another student or to the teacher, then the listener signs their name on the sheet. This promotes independence, encourages accountability and responsible learners who take ownership of their work.
1. Twelve sets of train cards to laminate and cut a part. Each part has one syllable of the 2 closed syllable word. I usually place these in a sentence strip holder for children to match up.
2. A student worksheet to write words with specific directions.
3. An optional sheet for students to write sentences using 3 of the words created.
4. Two blank sets of train cars if you would like to create your own words.
My first grade “kiddos” enjoyed using this Word Work station during Literacy Stations in May to reinforce the phonemic/spelling skills taught.
