Vocabulary and Word Analysis 5-Day Word Play Unit "OUTLANDISHLY"
You will find everything you need to actively engage your kids in word work and exploration to develop vocabulary and word analysis skills as students seek to discover what the "big word" of the week is. Perfect for your word work literacy center! Suggestions are provided for a five day routine. I use a list each week for the whole school year. With consistent reinforcement, your students will LOVE words and become vocabulary wizards!
These lessons are great for reinforcing use of context clues, multisyllabic word decoding, prefixes, suffixes, and root knowledge, and reading fluency. Rather than using verbal cues, I have created written clues for students to decipher in small groups while I work with another small group.
The OUTLANDISHLY list can be used to reinforce:
*Contractions n't, 's, 'll, 'd
Included are 17 pages:
Page 2-5: Detailed plan for a 5-day implementation including suggested oral quiz and sort
Page 6: Typed clues for students to work on in small groups, guided groups, or independent learning centers.
Page 7: 2 Vocabulary Word lists for quicker copying
Page 8: Letter grid to make letters for students to manipulate.
Page 9: Three questions assessing multiple meaning words, context clues, and word origins.
Page 10-15: Cooperative Learning game cards and instructions
Page 16-17: Independent response option for grading
