Poke Cards are easy, engaging, and fun for little learners! They make a wonderful center and are self checking! Students will look at the picture, say the CVC word, "poke" their coffee stirrer (or something similar) through the correct hole, and flip the card over to check their answer. Right and Wrong labels are included so students can sort their poke cards into piles. When they are done, students have the option of completing a "Poke Practice" page. This is a great introductory to CVC words and could even be utilized as an intervention. Please note that some teacher prep is required. Teachers will need to print, cut, laminate, hole punch, and circle the correct answer on the back of each card. However, once you are done - the center is long lasting and can be used for many years.
