Guided Reading Word Work Made Easy...

One of my struggles as a Title One Reading teacher was preparing word work for my guided reading lessons. I knew that I should be using manipulatives like letter magnets etc. but I never had it ready in advance and it always took more time getting it all ready then the actual lesson did. This is why I created this bundle "Guided Reading Word Work Made Easy". It includes every part of effective word work and requires very little prep! What more could you want?:) Here is the plan....

Step 1: Get your supplies ready! Choose a word work page that covers a sight word that is used frequently in the text you are using in your guided reading lesson. For example, this book has the word "you" on every page. Students will need glue, scissors, a copy of the book and a pencil.                     
Step 2: Cut out the letters in the side column.

Step 3: Students will use the cut out letters to make the word. Then they will read it, mix it up and make it again. They will do this three times.
Step 4: Students will glue the letters in the boxes to make the word and read it.
Step 5: Students will write the word in the boxes and read it.
Step 6:Take a word hunt in the book to see how many times they can find the word on their word work page. They will write tally marks or numbers to show how many times they found the word work sight word in the text. This allows them to apply their new word knowledge to the text.
