No prep required for these fun Spelling Patterns & Vocabulary Word Mine seasonal activities. Just print and use, either in full color projected under your document camera, or in gray scale black & white as individual worksheets.
I use these most often for morning work, but they are also great for homework, in your literacy center, or as a fun seasonal addition to your sub tub.
I created these Word Mines for my 3rd graders, but they will provide fun practice for 4th and 5th graders as well. My Gifted 3rd graders love the challenge of "finding" words in the letters and solving the mystery word!
