PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

About the Product:

I created the following word building activity sheets to give my students extra practice with various letter/sound patterns. The letter/sounds chosen were specific to my students’ needs throughout the year. I wanted to provide my students with more meaningful word work practice than simply letting them choose from different ways to write their spelling words. My students also needed extra practice with chunking word parts. Be a Word Builder Extraordinaire! has fulfilled these needs.

Prep:
Just print activity sheet and cut-out letters. Easy!

Use:
I do this activity together as a class before using it as an independent activity. I project the activity sheet on the SmartBoard and we work together step-by-step. Students cut apart the letters in the toolbox and place them in a row at the top of their work area. A clue is read, and students use the letters to build the word. Then they write the word neatly on the line next to the clue. Once students understand the process, I provide word building as a word work choice during guided reading rotations. I also stress that students must build the word at the top of the page before writing it, even if they think they know the word. In a given week, the word building letter/sound pattern I choose is dependent on our spelling Words to Know.
