Building words activities allows students to manipulate letters and sounds, use phonetic rules, identify high frequency words, sharpen vocabulary, and practice using words in context. This bundle of acitivies is divided into three sets, with students using the letters from three different "winter" words to build other words using clues. Ultimately, students will reveal the mystery word using all the letters. Designed with the wide range of abilities found in a typical second grade class in mind, each of the three sets includes three levels of difficulty, allowing you to differentiate the activity to best meet your individual students' needs. For this reason, these activities can work in first and third grades as well. Three sets of three activities provide nine individual activities in all. Great for literacy centers or small group activities. Answer keys are included.
