Here's a simple activity for students to sort words by word families (-ap, -an, -ad, -ack, -at).
Most of my files are made to keep printing at a minimum, easy to print, laminate, cut. If you use those small table top laminators, you just slip the whole page into the sleeve, laminate, and then cut (little waste).
These little 'Back to School Bears" will start the year out right. This activity works well with Macmillan Treasures, First Grade (Unit 1, Week 2).
Follow me for more Macmillan Treasures to come during the year.
