Inquiry - Developing more Word Worm activities

In order to give the students the opportunity to locate the high frequency words in a sentence I have decided to add this slide into the activity. Although I was focusing on teaching individual words in isolation in order to repeat the students to the same individual word, I do believe it will be beneficial for them to find the word hidden among other words. I am hoping by doing this students will be able to more easily translate their new learning of a word into locating it in their readers. (They have been able to read these words in their stories a majority of the time, however sometimes they still require prompting to focus on what they can see and to not get confused about the words around the word they are trying to read) I will be implementing this new slide in Term 2 so will keep you updated on whether or not it has been beneficial to add it in!


  1. Steph what an amazing journey you have had in the last 6 months, cementing your place as a New Entrant teacher who continues to motivate and inspire new learners and your colleagues. You continue to expand and extend your thinking and ideas to create an inclusive environment for newbies to school.

    1. Thank you, Anne! The last 6 months have flown by so fast and it has been a great journey. Lucky to have such a great bunch of learners!
