Provide your students with fun spelling patterns practice using this versatile, little-to-no prep Word Mine activity! Perfect for Back to School and all year long.
Word Mines are great for morning work, as a sponge activity, in your literacy center, or as a fun any-day 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 loved the challenge of "finding" words in the letters and solving the mystery word!

♥ Page of Word Tile strips (2 versions)
♥ Answer key
♥ Standards alignment
♥ Full instructions and teacher instructional notes
Both full color and black and white versions are provided for maximum options.
