Making Words is a common classroom word work activity.
While completing this hands-on activity, students work with letter tiles to create words. They move the given letters around to form different words.
Often a teacher will select the letters to focus on a specific skill.
Here’s a simple example of a making words lesson:
The teacher might give students the letters a, b, c, h, t.
Students will begin by exploring the letters and finding what words they can make.
Teachers might guide this activity by giving clues such as:
This word has two letters.
It starts with a vowel and ends with a “t” sound.
Students will move the letters to make at. They will keep these letters together and follow the next clues.
Add the b to the beginning. What word did you make?
Students will make bat.
Make the word say “k” at the beginning.
Students will move the letters to make the word say cat.
Can you add an h to the word to make a new word?
Students will form the word chat. Teachers might ask students to identify the digraph.
