In our primary classrooms, making time for word work is essential because it helps our young learners internalize spelling patterns and the meanings of words. Word work is a hands-on time to explore these spelling patterns. When students to practice these skills, they become better readers and writers.
This packet is designed to provide you with 30 games and activities that your young learners will LOVE. They are hands-on, engaging, and super easy to prep. Each activity comes with a variety of recording pages.
I have provided you with labels for each game that fit perfectly on Sterilite containers, multiple word list sheets, many recording pages, and picture pages/directions that show some of the activities in action.
The games included in this pack are:
-Chalk It Up!
-Roll A Word
-Guess My Word
-Build A Family
-Shaving Cream Words
-Pool Noodle Words
-Hunt The Room
-Snap It Together
-Cover A Word
-Break The Code
-Play Dough Words
This packet is perfect for literacy centers as well as word work activities. Once the students know how to use the recording pages and play the games, you can add any word list to the center and not have to prep anything. Not only will this save you instructional minutes (because you won't have to teach new centers) but it will also decrease your prep work!
