*You can also grab this freebie in this download.
Word Work can be so meaningful, but it needs to be engaging! It’s more enjoyable for students if you can switch up your word work on a monthly basis. However, it’s also helpful to have routines in place and be consistent. This word work idea allows you to do both, by simply changing the theme each month!
Students will practice sight words, special phonics patterns or letters in this word work activity. This works well at the beginning of Guided Reading or other small groups, during Morning Meetings or as a center/partner activity where students take turns leading each other through the chart.
Included in this freebie:
*Chart examples for each month
*Student pages for individual practice of words
Sample of what you'll do after making the chart:
You say: “Teacher, Teacher, What do you see?”
Students say: “I see readers looking at me!”
Then students continue on to read all the words listed on the chart as you point to them. Students will follow up with completing their own page for extra practice.
