This Vocabulary/Word Study activity was designed for students to manipulate and explore their vocabulary words. Students are required to note whether each letter in the word is a consonant or vowel, list the total number of vowels, the total number of consonants, and the total number of letters. Students then complete a number sentence adding the number of vowels plus the number of consonants to get the total number of letters. Students are also required to determine how many syllables are in the word. The students will then use the word in a sentence or sentences, and illustrate the word.
I use this activity as a weekly center. This product can be used repeatedly by simply changing the focus words. I find that my kiddos are able to complete four-six vocabulary word study sheets in thirty minutes (which is the time I have allotted for centers). I make a bunch of blank copies of this resource and write in the vocabulary words I want them to focus on weekly and then make my copies. I usually write in the focus word on each sheet, but feel free to adapt and use as you see fit.
I love the routine of this word study activity because the students do not waste time relearning directions on how to complete an activity, they are simply exploring and studying the given word.
