This freebie features the first week's word study (/s/, /h/, /sh/) in blends. Also included are word cards with & without pictures, a Connect 4 & Roll and Spell games, and a written sort sheet.
Purchasing the Spelling Features Packet is all you need to start out the school year! It's comparable to Word Study Letter Name B. Memorization is not taught here; it's all about similarities and differences among words. All of these words are level appropriate. If a student is learning short vowels, there won't be any blends in that sort- beginning or end. There is a clear focus during each week's set of words! This way of thinking will help students during independent reading and writing when they see a known part you've taught them!
The Blends packet available for purchase has all the directions you need to get started on your own. Here are plenty of word & picture sorts, with interactive games (Connect 4, and Roll and Spell), graphic organizers for written sort and add to sort, and homework cards included! Add these learning games to your literature stations/centers!
The Blends packet available for purchase includes
-how to use and teach spelling features,
-spelling features weeks 1-13
-picture card word key,
-homework pages (These have the same words as the beginning letter sound cards without the picture.),
-4 Connect 4 games,
-4 Roll and Spell games,
-a list of card games that your students will never get bored with, and
-written sort pages to go with each week's words.
All of these items will last 13 weeks for lessons and additional weeks for student practice! The MANY games can be implemented into your literacy centers! Good for mid-year kindergarten, beginning year first grade, and review for 2nd and 3rd graders for those struggling spellers.
