Read the Room is a favorite part of our literacy program. My kiddos love to Read the Room! In this engaging activity, students search the classroom for High Flying vehicles containing Long i words (-igh, -y). Once located, the words are sorted and written on the recording sheet. Students then read their words to the teacher. This is a great way to assess individual mastery of Phonics skills.
Directions for Use and Common Core Standards are included.
Yay! So glad you like it! Thank you tons for your purchase and feedback!!

thanks for creating a cute set of cards to practice reading those tricky igh words. One of my firsties told me yesterday when I was assessing Dolch words and we came to "right", "You know adults might know that igh says /I/, but little kids would never think that. We think g & h make their sounds too!" This comment came about 2 weeks into the more difficult spell patterns for long vowels, so it just goes to show that it takes a lot more than teaching and worksheets for some kiddos to understand all those tricky spell patterns. Anyway, thanks for being one of those teachers who think outside the workbook and create hands on activities for practicing tricky stuff. I know my firsties will love playing this game today.
Thank you very much for your sweet feedback! I am excited you like the activity and hope your kiddos feel the same! I have had a lot of success with this format of Read the Room! The kids seem more fired up about searching for words! I would love for you to let me know how it works for you! I appreciate your purchase and kind words so much!!
