This is an activity I use as an extension of The Monaco Method for Early Literacy. Students look at items from my Teacher's Creatures Letter Bags (or pictures printed on cards) and try to spell the word. For this activity all the words are three-letter CVC words (consonant-vowel-consonant). The student draws the item in the box and spells the word on the line to the right. Then they use the word in a sentence. I only use items/pictures containing letters we have formally learned in class, and add to the collection as we learn more letters.
