Word Building Folder
This word building folder will be your FAVORITE tool for small group and whole class phonics and spelling activities. Aligned with the Science of Reading, the folder gives your students the opportunity to practice spelling words related to a specific phonics concept. It encourages orthographic mapping through its careful and intentional design.
There are over 600 picture cards included for CVC words, CCVC and CVCC words, digraphs, trigraphs, magic e words, vowel teams, diphthongs, double consonants, r-controlled vowels, hard/soft g and hard soft c. Simply choose the cards that align with your current teaching focus and get your students spelling!
Full assembly instructions are included. All you need is a printer, scissors, glue, laminator and Velcro. Plus, a bonus separate sheet is included for mapping magic e words. See the preview for more details.
HOW CAN I USE THE FOLDER?
- Have students use the folder independently in small groups. They choose a picture card, sound out the word and spell it using the letter tiles.
- Make a folder for each student in your class and have them use it with or without the picture cards. You might like to call out some words for them to spell rather than using the picture cards.
