Oh I had so much fun making this center! It made me wish I was a student so I could play… being a detective, using foam tiles (a big hit in my classroom), and making words – recipe for fun!
My latest creation was another must do center… all the kids wanted to be at and stay at this center. I even found one little girl try to come back and do some more. 🙂
How does it work? Well, there are picture clues and the students have to figure out the initial sound/letter for each picture.
It comes with an alphabet chart, or what I refer to as a “cheat sheet”, so students who aren’t confident on their letters and sounds can still match the beginning letter.
Once the student has all the letters, they sound out the word and find the picture that matches. On the back of the picture, I wrote the word so they can check to see if they got it right!
I love these 4″x6″ photo cases for storing centers and everything in this one fits inside nicely. I color coordinated the cards and pictures so the kids have 6 different sets to choose from (and if something falls on the floor, it’s easily to find its home).
Everything put away in the 6 case storage box. This center comes with 36 cards – 28 CVC word cards and 8 CCVC cards for a bit of a challenge. I plan on making some CVCe word cards in the future… and I’m open to more ideas on what I can make after that!
Want your own? It’s up on my Teachers Pay Teachers store, click here to get it! BUT WAIT…
Check out my growing bundle… at a VERY low price. This bundle will eventually have CVC words, CVCe words and digraphs – the alphabet chart will be the same throughout the different products so children will get very comfortable with those initial sounds and will feel confident each time they do this center, even as it grows more challenging.
