Speaking of highlighting in my last post, I just created this highlight-a-word activity for one of our shared reading stories, so feel free to use it if you like! We are going to be working on vowel pattern /ou/ and /ow/. To use this activity, students read the words in the box. They then get to highlight the words with the spelling patterns, and they "X" out the other ones. Then, they write and sort the words they highlighted. Finally, they get to use one of the words to write a sentence!
