This bundle offers teachers tons of extra activities to support your current Wonders spelling curriculum. The activities were designed to encourage independence and autonomy. Teachers may add these activities as classwork, homework, or extra practice. Activities may be handed out separately or as a packet.
Six additional word lists and activities have been included in this bundle. Teachers may use these word lists during review weeks or during those “oddball” school weeks!
Activity 1 – Rainbow Words
Students will use either colored pencils or crayons to write their words in a variety of colors. Some students like to write whole words using different colors, while other students like to make each individual letter a different color. Teachers may choose to ask students to write their words in print, in cursive, or in a combination of the two.
Activity 2 – Word Sort or Pattern Activities
These activities are designed to help students notice the patterns in their spelling words. Some weeks, students will sort their words by vowel sound (long a/e), or by pattern (ou/ow). Some weeks will require students to draw pictures to represent their words (homophones).
Activity 3 – Word Shape Boxes
Word shapes are designed to help students visualize their spelling words. As students fill their spelling words into the boxes, they are required to slow down and analyze each word letter by letter. The final product helps students gain an overall visual image of their spelling word.
Activity 4 – Spelling Sentences
Students will write their spelling words in sentences to help build vocabulary and practice using context clues. Each spelling word should be highlighted in the sentence to draw attention to the spelling word.
Activity 5 – Alphabetical Order & Cursive Practice
Students will practice writing their spelling words in alphabetical order. Teachers may choose to have students write the words in cursive or in print. A model of each cursive letter is provided on the page.
