5 Ways to Perk Up Your Daily 5 Word Work!

Are you looking for new ways to perk up your Daily 5 Word Work routine? Look no further!

I’ve been doing Daily 5 for almost five years now. I love that it gives students a choice in their own learning! However, after many, many days of this routine in my classroom over the past half-decade, I’m kinda bored with some of the choices! So, I thought I’d share how I mixed up my Daily 5 time a bit more this year!

Building Sight Words

We all know that tactile learning is so important for most kids. These Snap Cube Sight Words are a great addition to your Word Work Activities. They’ll get a chance to make the word, then write it out!

Do your students love Legos? Give them a chance to make words using these Building Sight Word mats. They will think they are “playing” but we all know there’s a little learning too 🙂

Roll & Do

I created a Roll & Do die to give your students TONS of options!

To make, you’ll need to print out the the die and assemble. I’ve included a colored version and black and white…along with an editable version for you to add your very own options!

If they roll an activity that requires writing, they can write all of their weekly words on My List of Words worksheet!

I have a stack of these ready to go so students can simply grab the worksheet and a die and get going!

Colored Sand

Another easy to set up and fun to use Word Work idea is sand! I went to the Dollar Tree and grabbed colored sand and plastic storage containers.  The kids simply take a list of words, a fancy pencil and a bucket ‘o sand!

Type Out Sight & Spelling Words

One of the major skills we need to be teaching our little people these days is keyboarding! My goodness – I am afraid printing will even become a lost art in 20 years!

Students love this fun “keyboard!” I just printed out a few copies onto colored cardstock and they got peckin’ away on the keyboard. {I would laminate these little keyboards before dirty little fingers get on them! Lesson learned!}

Make Your Own Word Search

Making our own word search is definitely a fan favorite in my classroom!

The students simply grab a word list and a blank word search and get to town!

Later in the day, they are able to solve each other’s word search {if we have extra time!}

Are you wondering what words I use for these activities? Well, I’ve got two options for you!

Racing Through Sight Words

These lists are colored coded! The “red” car has the first 20 words of the Top 100 sight words and they progress in color through the list!

Words for the Week!

Each week I type up the Words of the Week for my class {taken from A Year of First Grade Homework!} This file is editable, so you can simply type your words right onto the page, print onto colored paper to jazz it up and laminate!

Daily 5…..Word Work

We have been working very hard in class to get our Daily 5 centers running smoothly.  Things have been going very well, especially with my Word Work Center.  I am so happy that it is up and running and the students LOVE going to it!  I created 10 Word Work stations that can be used over and over again throughout the year.  Most of the word work revolves around our spelling words, high frequency words, and amazing words.  Here is a picture of how I organized my Word Work Centers:


Task 1: Fun with Nouns and Verbs

Task 2:  Mystery Word Guess

Task 3:  Magnet Makers

Task 4:  Chunk Race

Task 5:  Word Race

Task 6:  Alphabet Cube Game

Task 7:  Stamp-a-Word

Task 8:  Jumbo Stamp

Task 9:  Fill in the blank Stampers

Task 10:  Magnet Puzzle Words

I am actually in the process of making a set of Word Work Tasks for my TPT store, but it’s not quite ready yet.

Here are some pics of my kiddos working in their Word Work Centers:

My kiddos love going to Word Work and it was working out really well.

Here are a few freebies that I use in my Word Work Center…

Work Work Recording Sheet Alphabet Cube Game

Word Work Recording Sheet 2 Stamp a Word

Word Work Recording Sheet Jumbo Stamps

I put some of my older alphabet stamps in these centers and the kids LOVE them…maybe a little too much!  But it gets them practicing their words 🙂  Gotta love that 🙂

How are your Word Work Centers going?  What types of activities do you have the little ones doing?

That’s all for now 🙂

Her swarthy mounds completely filled my palms, sometimes I passed the nipples between my fingers and twisted them. But then I wanted to taste them, and I ran my tongue along the hollow between the breasts, then licked each papilla. In turn, and finally absorbed one completely. Natasha's hands were tangled in my hair, caressing and trying to guide me.

But I wanted to find all her sensitive spots myself and, intercepting my hands, brought them behind my head.
