Vowel Teams Word Work for Kindergarten and First Grade
What educators are saying
Don't forget, you can now buy the Word Work Super Mega Pack BUNDLE - 300+ pages of activities for long and short vowels, digraphs, diphthongs, vowel teams, and r-controlled vowels! A savings of $5 when you purchase the bundle instead of individually!
Spelling Patterns Included:
Long a as ay/ai
Long e as ee/ea/e
Long e as Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½y
Long i as y/igh/i
Long o as ow/oa
Activities* are the same for each spelling pattern, which help to familiarize students with the format of the activities and increase their ability to complete the activity independently. I hope your kiddos like them!
Activity #1: Students will use the frames (p3) to Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½frameÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ the words found on p.18, 16, 24, 32, and 40. After Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½framingÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ the words, the student will record 5 of the words on the companion sheet (p.4) and write a sentence using the word.
Activity #2: Students will use a highlighter to highlight the words that have the spelling pattern. Then, they record the words that they highlight.
Activity #3: Students will sort words by spelling pattern and paste them into the correct column.
Activity #4: Write the word. Stamp the word.
Activity #5: Students will illustrate and assemble a mini-book of words the include the spelling pattern(s).
Activity #6: Students will create a fold-and-flip organizer where they will either write or paste real words or silly words (i.e. nonsense words).
Option A: Create double-sided copies of p.5-6 to make the fold-and-flip and use the cut-outs on p.15, 23, 31, 39, 47 to sort and paste.
Option B: Create double-sided copies p.5 & 7 to make the fold-and-flip, and pre-cut the word cards (p.14, 22, 30, 38, 46). Students then select the cards from a stack, read them, and determine if they are real words or silly words. They record the words on the lines. There will be more cards than recording space. The cards could also be used independently for reading practice.
*These activities are the same ones found in the long and short vowel packs found in my shop. ONLY the spelling pattern changes - the activities are the same.
Please ask any and all questions before purchasing :) Thanks so much for looking and have a great day!
