Interactive Notebooks: Word Study
These supplementary workbooks are great for teaching and reinforcing concepts that are standards-aligned at each grade level. Use them to help students create their own 'resource notebook' for use all year long. Each book has 96 perforated pages for students to complete and place in their own notebook. Besides all the concepts being learned in the pages, they will also learn organization, color-coding, and summarizing. The Kindergarten level includes pages for sight words, letter sounds, decoding, and syllables. Grade 1 includes vowel teams, blends/digraphs, syllables, inflectional endings, and long/short vowels; contractions, sight words, vowel teams, and blends /digraphs are in Grade 2; Grade 3 includes high frequency words, affixes and roots, and vowel and consonant spelling patterns; Grade 4 includes spelling patterns, inflectional endings, high frequency words, and affixes and roots. Spelling patterns, high frequency words, and inflectional endings are found in Grade 5.
The pages in these books are reproducible for classroom and family use and include activities like making lift-the-flap word lists, creating pockets for word cards, mixing and matching endings, making different types of folds, and more. Each child will need either a spiral notebook, composition notebook, or binder with loose-leaf paper. Students will cut and paste the different activities from the Interactive Notebook pages onto the pages for their notebook of choice. Suggestions for assembling the pages into a usable format are in the front of each book. These remind me of History Pockets or Literature Pockets, but with word concepts. Students will cut and paste and create their own resource book while learning the concepts. Great for the more kinesthetic learners! ~ Donna
