These "making words" activities are perfect for your writing center, or for using in small groups. Students love cutting the letters at the bottom of the page to see how many different words they can make! I have even used this "making words" activity as a whole-group lesson before! Give each student a small plate to put their letters on and then give them sight words to make on their plates. It's an easy check for understanding - and it's fun!
