PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Many thanks for stopping by! This packet is designed to be used as a literacy center and/or whole group game.

This pack includes:

-Linking chart including long and short vowels as well as common digraphs (sh, ch, th, wh). This chart is handy for choral reading and partner work. I find that it is helpful for students to become familiar with this chart before working on the breaking the Christmas code cards.

-Christmas Code Mystery Word Puzzles for 16 holiday words. (An answer key is also provided with the words filled in. If desired, these cards can be displayed as part of a holiday words word bank.)

For silent letters, I added a small ear with a red x in the upper right-hand corner of the box. For letters that sound like another sound for which a picture is on the chart, I added an ear (sounds like) and the picture representing the sound in the upper-right hand corner of the box. For letters that make a sound not represented on the initial sound chart, I added a question mark in the upper right-hand corner of the box.

Ideas for use include:

Have kids use magnetic letters to fill in the mystery word puzzles during literacy centers.

Play “Howdy Partner” – a simple game where kids get either a word card or a code card and search for the child with the matching card.

If you like to format of this item, I hope you'll take a minute to check out my Secret Sight Word listing.

Best wishes for a wonderful holiday season!

Sincerely, Anne Gardner (NBCT, Literacy)
