The Big Pigs
Directions for use:
Before presenting this worksheet, do some board work with your entire class (or your own child) to introduce the IG word family.
- Teach the sound made by the letters IG.
- Focus on just one letter at a time that may precede IG. Say the word made by adding this consonant. For early learners, stick with single consonants. Form the words BIG, DIG, JIG, PIG, WIG. (Later you can add words with consonant blends.)
- Be sure kids understand the meaning of each word you spell. Write the words on the board. Ask a student to come to the board and add one of the consonants to ig. Ask her/him to say the new word s/he just spelled.
- When your students have a good understanding of these words, pass out "The Big Pigs" printable worksheet.
- Read the first sentence together: "This big pig wears a wig." Tell students to circle the words that are underlined in that sentence.
- Next, tell kids to write the missing words in the blanks of the second sentence.
- Repeat for the second sentence, "This big pig does a jig."
Over the next few days, remind students of the IG words they've learned. Have brief oral "pop quizzes" in which you ask, "Who can name an IG word? Can you spell the word? Can you say the word in a sentence?"
Make a word wall display of IG words.
Add more IG words to your list: fig, gig, rig, twig
