GREAT PRACTICE WITH WORDS SPELLED WITH THE -BL BLEND.
Literacy Centers/ Work Stations or Independent practice sheets using the -bl blend. These activities provide great practice for First Graders, for more advanced Kindergarten students or as a beginning of the year review for struggling Second Graders.
Making Words Cut and Paste - I staple this along with the Making Sentences (fill in the blank) sheet and use it as one of my Word Stations. This is ideal, especially if you follow the Daily Five by: Gail Boushey and Joan Moser.
Writing Sentences allows students to choose from the list of Word Family Words and write their own sentences using those words.
"My Book of Words Using the "bl" Blend" (print two sheets per page for half-sheet size booklets) -
Another great Work Station! Put these booklets together by stapling one coversheet with several of the provided booklet pages.
Students write the Word Family words and illustrate in the space provided. Afterward they love to color in the title on the coversheet.
Later in the year, or for more advanced students, I switch to the "My Book of Sentences Using Words with the "bl" Blend" booklets. Assemble by using a coversheet and enough half-sheet size pages to allow them to write sentences with all of the spelling words for that week. Students write each word in complete sentences and illustrate in the space provided.
All of my Word Family Sets follow the same basic format to foster student independence through familiarity.
