Procedure

First, you will find some articles or short stories that are in children's magazines and copy them for the students.

They can each have a different article or short story, or they can all have a copy of the same one.

After that, you will copy the worksheet that I have included in this lesson so that each student can have a copy.

When they have finished locating the words in the articles or short stories, you can have the students write each word in the space beside them on the worksheet. That will give them practice in writing and spelling.
