Frindle Freebie

If you or someone close to you teaches 5th grade and uses Reading Street, please follow my Pinterest Boards.  I have spent a LOT of hours trying to find great activities to use for centers.  The ones the book provides go either too quickly or the kids don’t get anything out of them. I will write a post about how I do my centers later, but I will use this activity on Tuesday for Centers.

Directions for Teachers:  Copy first sheet for everyone in the class.  Then, I am going to copy the words for each pair of students in a group on colored paper. ( The most kids I have in one group is six so I am going to copy the words three times.) For durability print them on cardstock and laminate. I will probably store the words in a ziploc bag because they are easy and reusable.  After the pair sorts the words they will then fill out their recording sheet. I will “grade” the sorting and the correctness of the written sentences.image

Happy Teaching!
