Making Words - Spring Has Sprung!

Hi, Everybody!

Greetings from NJ, where we're enjoying another gorgeous day - hope your weather is fair and pleasant like ours! What an unexpected March gift!

Here's a quick freebie for you, since we'll officially celebrate the first day of Spring this week -yay!! It's a little Making Words activity, but this one has a bit of a twist. The first page supplies your students with the target word, "Springtime". The second version doesn't give the word. Instead, "Springtime" is the mystery word that your students are challenged to figure out by manipulating the letters. (Nothing like the word "Mystery" to get those little brains working harder!) And the third page is a word sort by spelling patterns, using the words they made from the letters.

I like adding the word sort page to Making Words when the children are doing this activity independently or with a partner. First of all, it echoes the activities we do in whole class Making Words. Second, it challenges the students to go back and try harder to make more words, so they'll have some in each box of the word sort. Finally, I like to have the students do the underlining because it really helps the strugglers to focus on chunks in words.
