Word work is an important part of reading instruction in the classroom. You might find it during whole group instruction, literacy centers or small group instruction.

During word work, your goals include:

  • helping your children recognize patterns in reading and spelling
  • working on memorization of sight words
  • encouraging children to explore and use new words

As teachers, our hope is that as you work on the above goals, your students will begin to develop a love of reading and writing.

With careful planning, word work time in your classroom will become a time your children love.

Exploring this Site

This site is broken into four main sections. Each section focuses on a different aspect of your instruction. Under each section you will find free resources I have created to help you in your classroom.

Currently, my focus is on developing the sight words and phonics sections. I have had many requests for a range of worksheets and cut & paste activities for phonics practice. Along with these, I am working on creating new centers for your word work centers.

This phonics section is packed with worksheets for phonics skills. You will find word sorts and cut & paste activities.

As we head into winter, look for the word list section to grow to include a wider range of word lists. My goal is for the word lists to be the most complete lists you can find.

Not only will you find lists geared towards special celebrations, there will be phonics based lists for word families and collections of words such as nouns, verbs and adjectives.

This collection of word lists can be used to help your young writers. Also great for teachers creating content.

This is a new site with lots in the works! Be sure to bookmark this page and check back over the summer.

Connect with me! Please send me any requests you have for future resources via cathy@freewordwork.com.
