Students will match letter tiles to an illustrated task card's label that names the picture on the card. They will then use the letter tiles from the word they just spelled to make other 6, 5, 4, 3, or 2 letter words in the boxes provided on the task card.
The holidays come and go....and so do the holiday words, usually.
Here's something to help make those holiday words "stick" so that they will be recognizable, readable, and spell-able when the season comes around again!
Meant to be used as task cards for a center, but can also be used as a worksheet "manipulative"(cut and paste). 11 task cards feature Thanksgiving words such as thankful, Pilgrims, Indians, cornucopia, Mayflower, turkey, etc.
This is a wonderful way to encourage cooperative learning. I'm sure many of you incorporate the "buddy system" for reading partners.(coupling older students with
younger students). Here's an opportunity to do something similar with "spelling buddies"! When it comes time to make other words with the letter tiles of the given word, older students can help their younger counterparts with that task while getting some extra spelling practice for themselves.
Each task card has a word list(answers) that goes with this part of the activity.
More pages give the child an opportunity to trace and write the featured words.
The plastic letter tiles can be purchased through Amazon or at your local dollar store. If you don't want to do that, this product provides you with 2 pages of the paper letter tiles needed.Just print out on cardstock.
