This is a blending and segmenting activity with cvc words.
There are 38 wheels that can be divided up between 4 to 5 children to use at a station. The children will blend the words to read them, find the word that names the picture in the middle of the wheel, and place a colored clothespin or large colored paper clip on the word that names the picture. The children can swap wheels with another child when they have been checked. Also,there is a recording sheet to draw the picture and spell the word that's on the wheel. I encourage my students to spell the word without looking at the word on the wheel.
I love this activity because the children can work independently while I am working with a different station. They bring me their wheels in a small basket to check.
