Santa's Spin,Spell, and Speak is a phonics, handwriting , and math combo activity. It is a visual, auditory, and kinetic center to practice beginning sounds, word family endings, nonsense words, data collection and graphing.
The spelling worksheets are designed to emphasize the joining of sounds. The students writes the 1st letter, then writes the word family ending, and finally the whole word if it is a real word.
All words are written in hollow outlined fonts that include a dot for starting the letter and arrows to prompt correct sequence.
