Work on Words

During Daily Five my students have several options. But the ones they return to again and again are the activities in a sack. Most of these I make myself to go along with our reading series: SF (Reading Street). They are quick and easy to create and assemble…but if you don’t have the time I’ve provided a few downloads below. Please feel free to use them, and let me know how they work for you. Hint, hint: Leave a comment Open-mouthed smile

In this activity the students sort complete sentences and incomplete sentences. Then they have to write  their own complete sentences.

In this activity the students sort the asking sentences from the telling sentences. Then they have to write three of their own asking or telling sentences.

Students sort blends then fill out an accompanying  worksheet. Sometimes I ask my more advanced students to write silly sentences or stories for a set of blends.

These are just a few of the activities I like to use. I have tons more. Next up Short and Long vowel Bingo Games.

Happy Thanksgiving

  5. I have used several of your bag activities. The kids love them. I don't use your reading series but many of the concepts are the same. I just match them up.

    Thanks again for sharing all your hard work.

  9. You are welcome! I'm so glad you are finding things you can use. Being a Reading Recovery teacher changed my entire outlook on literacy. If you get the chance to be trained...go for it! You will not be disappointed.

  12. I know I am late at commenting on this material but I came across your site and just adore it. So I am going back to older posts. I have been teaching for eight years and never feel like I have enough time to make or money to buy quality fun centers for my students. Thank you! for your creative thinking and all of your awesomeness!!!
