About this book:
I made this CVC word family word building activity for use with children in Kindergarten (Prep) and Grade 1. Each word building mat displays 4 pictures from the focus word family and an empty box. The empty box represents the mystery word children have to build, once all the other words have been built.
Directions for set-up and use:
Word-building mats: After printing, these mats should be laminated for durability. If you are using them on a magnetic cookie tray, make sure to print on thin paper and laminate with pouches no thicker than 160 microns. This ensures that the magnetic letters will attract to the magnetic cookie tray.
Letter boards: Each letter board shows children the letters needed to complete the words on the word-building mats. After printing, laminate each board for durability.
Children find the magentic/Scrabble letters shown on the letter board and place them over their corresponding letters. As they build each word from the word-building mats, they take the letters off the letter board and place them on the word-building mat. After the first 4 words have been correctly identified and built, there will be some letters left on the board. These tiles contain the letters required to make the mystery word! Children need to arrange and re-arrange the letters until they have solved the mystery word!
Answer cards: Cut this section off from the bottom of the letter board pages and give them to children as a means by which they may check that they have built the words correctly.
Recording sheets: The recording sheets are used once children have checked that they have built the words correctly. To complete, children write the words or use alphabet stamps.
Happy Teaching :)
