Searching for a fun new way for your students to practice reading CVC words- both real and nonsense words?
Ready to 'spring' into some spring/summer fun themes, like bugs and insects?
Want a center that is little to no prep but has your little 'bugs' up and about to read and learn?

This bug themed 'read the room' activity will engage the 'antsy'-iest of learners and they will have no idea they are reading to learn!

The center can also be used as a 'stationary' center rather than read the room.

This Pack Includes:
*Directions/Suggestions For Use

*13 CVC Word Cards

*5 CVC Nonsense Word Cards

*recording sheet & answering sheet

Supports Common Core Learning Standards RF.K.2, 3

Makes a great read the room or phonics center, spring/summer activity/learning station and/or center, etc!

Directions for Use:
Print/laminate word cards and tape around your classroom (or place in a basket/bucket if you prefer a stationary center).

Students look at the word card, read the word, record the word next to the picture on the recording sheet that matches the picture on the card.

They circle either ‘real’ or ‘nonsense’

Continue until all cards have been found.

Can have them use one of the words in a sentence on the back!
