This literacy center uses a familiar pocket chart game. Your students will be sounding out and reading words with short vowels, beginning blends or ending blends. There are 65 word cards which practice pl, fl, sl, sp, sk, sn, and st blends. Just choose the cards with blends you want your students to practice. Also included is a student response page, a second option on how to use the cards and a page of blank cards which you may program with words to meet the specific needs of your class. The cards feature clipart for Valentine's Day so this literacy center will be a great addition to your February centers.
