Make the Word (grades 1-3)

 

Author:

Linda DittmarBordeaux ElementaryWashington

 

Subject: Reading

 

Objective: Students use phonemic awareness to create a written word and read that word.

 

Materials and Preparation:

 

  • 1 miniature white board for each team

  • 1 dry erase marker for each team

  • 1 eraser for each team

  • a list of phonetically spelled words to which your students have been exposed

 

Student Grouping: mixed ability, 4 or so students per group

 

The Play:

 

  • Each person on the team takes one turn with the white board and marker as the teacher makes a phonetic sound and then passes the board and marker to the next person.

  • Once the word is completed and points given to teams, the word is erased.

  • The next person on the team continues the cycle with the board and marker.

 

Scoring: Each team earns a point for correctly writing the word.

 

Example:

 

/t/ /i/ /p/ /s/

Comments or Variations: The first team to write and read the word gets an extra point.
