This Word Study mini-lesson is ideal for spelling lessons, vocabulary building, word work, or Guided Reading instruction. The mini-lesson has word lists at 3 different levels. Students learn a word pattern, sort words, find words in their reading text, and complete independent choice board activities. The independent activities can be continued during literacy/reading stations. The word cards can also be used with word games.
This mini-lesson is most suitable for students in grades 2-3-4 who have a foundation in phonemic awareness and phonics, typically students reading at levels H through S. Some words may not be familiar to students and provide a good opportunity for vocabulary building.

HOW I USE WORD STUDY
I use word study mini-lessons during guided reading instruction. Because the lists are at different levels, I can focus on one pattern for the whole class and differentiate for small groups. My guided reading lessons follow a 4 day format. Three days are for comprehension and vocabulary building (and reading the book!). The fourth day is a word study lesson. Alternatively, Word Study could be Day 1. Visit my TpT site
for Guided Reading lessons, Word Study lessons, Word Task Cards and Word Games.
