Product Description
Word hunts in texts can be an overwhelming and difficult task to master independently. This activity will help your students become independent and successful in finding specific spelling features in words. This is the opposite of a word search. There is no word bank for them to search for words. They must understand the specific spelling features and hunt for words with that feature and record them.

This activity is ideal in a small group setting during a guided reading lesson or an intervention block. The word hunts are divided up into letter name, within word, and syllable juncture.


Here are the spelling features and answer key thus far:

at, an
ad, ag, ap
am, ap, at
