I FINALLY found some much needed time for ELA Common Core. Below you will find two activities for reading and identifying base words + endings. The first activity students use a brace map (laminated). Using the word cards provided in packet and seen below, students choose one card and write the whole word on the left side of the brace (using an expo marker). Then they break the word apart to find the base word and the ending. They create an addition sentence at the bottom of the brace map practice putting the word back together.
If you like the above game and would like to use it in your classroom, then click HERE and visit my TpT store.
The next activity included in this packet is a game. Students work together and race to the finish line reading and identifying base words.
Next, I created a little packet to address Common Core Standard: RF.1.3.c. Students are required to read words with the final e sound and common vowel team representing long vowel sounds. So I made a packet full of word sorts using tree maps and recording sheets as well as a silly animal story to go with each sort. Students will read the silly story and highlight the words with the long vowel patterns emphasized. Then students will write the words they found on the tree map recording page. There is a set of activities for each long vowel (a,e,i,o,u). See some examples below:
If you like the activities seen above, go on over to my little shop and grab a copy of each. You can click HERE or click on my TpT button on the right side of my blog. I am thinking I will give 3 lucky winners BOTH of these games for FREE. How about the first three fabulous teachers who leave a comment!
Tomorrow I will be back with more opinion writing freebies and a marshmallow bunny graphing and sorting activity.
