Put Some [Spice] in Your Reading.
Suggestions for enriching reading programs are divided into six categories in this booklet. Part 1, describing syllable work, recommends using syllable strips (rather than ordinary jigsaw puzzles), word groups, and student teams to work with unscrambling syllables. Part 2 suggests an activity for working with double consonant words, for example, listing words with two pairs of double consonants and then experimenting with omissions and additions. The activity may be called: Which one is right? Part 3 suggests building a good collection of word lists, such as finding words that contain words--his, is--and deleting one letter to create a new word. Part 4 recommends the use of syllables in teaching and reviewing phonetic elements. Part 5 offers activities for building vocabularies, and part 6 lists some fun activities for starting each day.
