Secret Word Literacy Stations are SO FUN for CVC Word Families! Kids have to figure out the SECRET CVC Word by building the first 3 words then unscrambling the letters they have left to figure it out! Such a fun games! 21 worksheets included!

I love it because it's as easy to prep as a worksheet but is actually a really engaging, interactive game! Kids will rush to figure out the secret. After they figure it out, they draw the mystery word and write it. Great, engaging fun that your students will love and not even realize how much reading they're doing!

This pack comes with 21 different literacy station worksheets. All 21 of the stations come in both full color and black and white (line art students can color). I recommend the black and white so that it adds the fun coloring element to the station, plus it saves you a ton of ink!

CVC Word families included:

am, at, ad, an, ag, ap, ed, et, en, it, ip, id, ig, in, op, ot, og, un, ut, ub, ug

*For easy reference, the word family being practiced will be the first 2 letters to unscramble at the bottom.

The first page is a table of contents that you can click on to take you to the page/sound you want. Just click the detective on any page to take you back to the table of contents. The table of contents is also an answer key for easy reference.
