Would you like to see your students work independently at your literacy centers? These word study activities are perfect for any list of words.

Each activity includes step-by-step VISUAL directions to help your students complete each task independently and with accuracy.

Each activity touches upon a variety multidisciplinary tasks to build on their strengths while reinforcing phonemic awareness.


COUNT: Students build their words and count the value of each letter

BUILD: Students build with magnets and count the # of vowels and consonants.

BEAD!: Students use beads to build their words and build fine motor skills.

I am thrilled at how versatile these activities are. You can assign these activities as a daily routine or you can make them available to students who finish their center activities early. You can also utilize this resource in your Substitute Teacher Plans to keep your curriculum going in your absence.

Once you have the materials prepped, your students can visit each center and practice/reinforce ANY spelling and phonics pattern they are studying in your classroom. These activities are low-maintenance and support any spelling pattern. Win!

I must also mention, these center activities are perfect for differentiated Spelling lists (I use Words Their Way). Differentiating your Spelling lists can be a daunting task. These activities will not only support your curriculum but they will make your life easier! To learn more about how to simplify your differentiated Word Study and Spelling program visit HERE
