Upper elementary students LOVE this small group word work! Included are 15 lessons using the letters of a language arts word as manipulatives for students in grades 3-5 to use while making words. The emphasis is more about exposure to new vocabulary than spelling and phonics. It's especially great for small groups because so many "fancy" new words can be introduced in a very low stress and fun way. The Secret Word is most valuable as a teacher-directed, small-group activity, but the letters and student pages could also be used in literacy centers.
The thumbnails show examples from one lesson. The preview shows a sample lesson, all of the teacher pages with the emphasized vocabulary, and the detailed teacher directions on how to teach The Secret Word.

• Letters for each word to use as manipulatives (15 pages)
