Making Words: Real or Nonsense? contains 23 word building reproducibles that include a variety of letters and sounds for first grade. Children will practice using beginning and ending consonants, short vowels, long vowels, and r-controlled vowels to make words and determine if they are real or not. These reproducibles incorporate phonics, vocabulary, spelling practice, and word families (rhyming words). Dictionary skills can also be incorporated for children to determine if words are real or not. They are great to use for literacy centers, independent work, or homework.
