This is a packet of 25 cut, paste, or color practice pages that can be used in literacy centers, as homework, bell work or for fast finishers. They could also be used to paste into an interactive phonics notebook or word book so that the kids could go back and re-visit the pages.
Each page has graphics that help support the word card sounds. There is also a row of 4 blank cards on many of the pages for students to brainstorm or work with partners to add new words. Most of the colored graphics are very small and reproduce well in black and white.
If time is limited or you don't want the mess of cut and paste, the cards can be colored in as the words are written into the columns. Each column could be color coded. These could be used as substitute back-up plans as well. It's fantastic for ELL students, too.
Newly added: I added a new sort, a core standards page, an ESL Insights page, and a few new graphics. I also added an illustration page and a match-it page.
Use conventional spelling for words with common spelling patterns and for frequently occurring irregular words.
Spell untaught words phonetically, drawing on phonemic awareness and spelling conventions.
Sort words into categories (e.g., colors, clothing) to gain a sense of the concepts the categories represent
Form and use frequently occurring irregular plural nouns (e.g., feet, children, teeth, mice, fish).
Generalize learned spelling patterns when writing words (e.g., cage → badge; boy → boil).
Form and use regular and irregular plural nouns.
Form and use regular and irregular verbs.
So many possibilites! I'm very happy with this packet and even though I don't use worksheets everyday, it's darn nice to have them on the back burner!
