Making words lessons are a must-do for all elementary teachers. Celebrate Thanksgiving while teaching essential reading skills.
In the first step, students make words from smallest to largest, in step two, students sort words based on common words families, and in step three, students apply the skills they learned to read and spell new words.
Included in the digital file are five Thanksgiving themed making words lessons. Each includes a student worksheet, teacher key, and teacher letter and word cards sized for a standard pocket chart.
Skills: spelling, phonics, rhyming words, word families, and spelling strategies. These lessons are based on Making Words by Patricia Cunningham and Dorothy Hall.
