Over 225 puzzle words 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 /s/ target symbol they are searching for and then spin the wheel to match each /s/ stimuli picture with the letter it represents. Write that letter on the appropriate line. Identify all the letters to reveal the /s/ secret word!
Both /s/ and /s/ blends are targeted in the various positions of words. **Several /s/ blends are only targeted in the initial position 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.
