Create-A-Word! Vocabulary Activities - Environment Theme

Create-A-Word! Vocabulary Activities - Environment Theme

A multi-sensory, word-creating exercise which is perfect for morning literacy activity, literacy circles, group activity time, home school, or special education. Each student approaches a make-a-word exercise in their own preferred way. There are many strategies which students can use to increase the number of words they make, and a dozen different phonics tips for word-making are included in this resource. Alphabet letter sets are included with this pack, so that students can move the cut-out letters around if needed, to help them form words. The longest word in each set is an environmental term, but dozens to hundreds of smaller words can be created with each set of letters. All word answers are included in the resource. Word exercises such as this one enable students to find new words they may not have heard or seen before, and also help them to recall words which are stored in memory - and thus practice their vocabulary skills. Synthetic phonics skills and word decoding skills are both developed in word creation activities. Students could work in groups, and aim to make the largest number of words. They could also try to create the word with the most letters, in addition to the target word in each set. Students can use the resource to create individual "words of the day", when previously unknown words are found. Each student in turn could share the new words they make with others in the class. If no-one in the class knows the meaning, the words can be added to a weekly chart, and students can take turns writing the dictionary meaning next to each word, throughout the day or week. Students can also work in groups to try and make the largest number of new words which no-one in their group has heard or seen before, and then check dictionary meanings. First group to reach 10 words with meanings could win a prize. Each group could play a word challenge game, finding words with a minimum number of letters (e.g. 4, or 5), working within a time limit. Students could look for the hidden animal words. One or more animal words can be made from each letter set. The target multi-syllable word in each set could be used as a basis for a research report, or a creative writing piece.
