Ninety-six puzzles to identify by using a fun decoding spinner! Cut out each circle, placing the plain white circle on top of the letter-symbol circle. Attach the two with a brad. Have the student say the /r/ or /r/ blend target symbol they are searching for and then spin the wheel to match each picture with the letter it represents. Write that letter on the appropriate line. Identify all the letters to reveal the secret /r/ word!
Both /r/ and /r/ blends are targeted in the various positions of words.
For continued use, print and laminate the spinners before attaching them together with a brad; then simply reprint the accompanying sheets as needed. You can also allow the students to color the pictures, making their own wheel to use as a homework tool.
