Word Wizard Make-a-Words are the perfect way to teach and reinforce sound/letter combinations. It's a FUN and EFFECTIVE activity that my students love to do each week.
Want your kids' phonetic skills to grow by leaps and bounds? Anxious to see if they can APPLY what you've taught them? If you haven't introduced Make-A-Word activities to your class, give it a try. TRULY AMAZING RESULTS! In the beginning, we make words together. I use Magnetic Letters on board and we manipulate them into words AFTER noticing the letters in the word: the digraphs, vowels, the “s” for plurals, etc. Always remind them in beginning that each word MUST have a vowel. After some independent practice, I often allow them to work together and always have a two-minute break where kids share out a word they made. I’ll write them on board (as we discuss the combos we see) and students are allowed to “grab” them and add word to own paper if desired. It’s a good learning opportunity. It’s May now as I write this and this week my lowest child got 21 words and my highest got 86 words in a twenty-minute period. Great word work!
