This phonics pack is full of PHONICS supplemental material for Reading Street's Grade 3, Rocks in His Head, focusing on the skill of prefixes, specifically pre, mid, over, and out. I use the resources as independent work, small group supplements, and whole group activities during our course of study in addition to the material Reading Street provides.
Included in this pack:
Reading Street U4W3 phonics list
U4W3 Challenge list
Word cards used for displays, word sorts during guided reading, or partner games
3 Challenge worksheets including:
Challenge word sort
Challenge syllable identification
Challenge story write
Decodable reader a
Decodable reader b
Decodable reader c
24 prefix task cards with recording sheet
Answer sheet included in both paper and QR code versions!
32 I have/who has game cards
Homework choice boards for additional practice
*The challenge phonics list follows the same phonics rule for the week with some overlapping words from the Reading Street list mixed with more challenging base words.
*24 Phonics Task Cards are based off of Reading Street's standards and assessments. Questions follow a similar format as to those students are required to test on. These can be used as an independent center, in small group instruction, or a Scoot-Around-the-Room. These challenge cards have 2 types of questions:
1. identifying what a word with a prefix means
2. adding a prefix to a baseword
**NEW** QR codes included for answer keys. Notice there are two QR codes for numbers 1-12 and 12-24. Students can scan codes and self correct their own work from any classroom device!
*32 I have/Who Has cards are a ~*challenge*~! My third graders absolutely love this activity but it requires everyone working together and listening to find the correct words. This was designed purposefully to be a higher level thinking game rather than a typical call and response game like I have/Who has cards you may be familiar with.
Note: I highly suggest printing off the answer sheet and having it with you to give the students clues if they get stuck or redirect if they choose the wrong word.
