Listing Detail Tabs

Students need lots of opportunities to explore the spelling patterns within words. This 60 page resource, emailed to you, as a .pdf file, contains great ideas for class, group and independent Word Work.

One idea is to have a 'Chunk of the Week' . The teacher introduces the chunk and straight away students are thinking about words they can write on a post-it and add to the Word Wall.

Words can be added during the week from discussions and independent reading, and activities are completed in skills sessions or as part of the reading rotation.

A 'Chunky Challenge' can be a homework task to get Parents involved. Students draw something that ends with the chunk and then add all the other words that sound the same to the picture.

Students share their work with a buddy or the class can vote on the 'Chunky Challenge Champions'

By the end of the week, children work together in mixed ability groups to write down as many words as they can with the chunk, with the timer on. The student that has worked the best on the Chunky Challenge activities during the week becomes the overall Champion!

Initially the Chunk is Onset and Rime but from Year 5 up they can be anywhere in the word as long as they 'say the sound'. NB - 'at' can't be 'boat'

The resource includes lots of Word work activities for Daily 5.
- Word Building templates for all ages

Older students can build the families within the geometric patterns, adding sentences and illustrations.These make a great wall display.

Plus 14 A5 Wordle Word Families to add to your display and awards for Chunky Challenge Champions!
