Product Description
Earth Day Activities: Literacy Centers Blending Build A Word Wheels

★ Different Ways To Use & Record

★ 63 onsets and 72 rimes


★ 63 Different Combinations of Wheels, so you can make 63 Word Builder Wheels with this set!

★ Includes 4 Word Builder Awards & 8 Recording Sheets

★ Great for Differentiating Word Building Practice with your students

★ 7 inner wheels and 9 outer wheels as described below.

★ Print as many of each wheel as desired to make up to 63 different Word Builders…

★ Two styles of optional recording sheets (record only real words OR record as real or nonsense in correct column – also some recording sheets with color pictures and some with black and white for students to color) can be used for students to write the words they build.

4 Word Builder Award Certificates are included as well in both color and black and white.

Assemble Word Builders by placing one small onset wheel on top of one larger rime wheel, and secure with a brass paper fastener. You can start easy and then make them harder as the year progresses.

You can also change the center wheels or outer wheels to adjust to your students’ growth.

7 different inner onset wheels contain:
**all 19 beginning single consonants
**8 beginning consonant digraphs
**21 two-letter blends
**8 three-letter blends or tri-graphs

9 different larger outer rime wheels that contain: :
**8 -vc chunks (rimes) with the vowel a
**8 -vc chunks (rimes) with the vowel e
**8 -vc chunks (rimes) with the vowel i
**8 -vc chunks (rimes) with the vowel o
**8 -vc chunks (rimes) with the vowel u
**10 chunks with vowels and double consonants:
-ff, -ll, -ss, -zz
**5 chunks with vowels and –ck
**5 r-controlled vowel combinations
**11 vowel digraphs and the letter -y

Ways to Use:
Give each student one Word Builder and a recording sheet. See how many real words can be made with the wheels in one position. Then advance the inner or outer wheel one move, and build more words. This activity can continue until the wheel has been moved a total of 7 times to make all possible word combinations on that particular Word Builder. (Advanced students may need more than one recording sheet.)

Give each student one Word Builder and a recording sheet for real words and nonsense words. See how many real words and how many nonsense words can be made with the wheel in one position. This activity can be continued by advancing the wheel one move to build 8 more words to classify as real or nonsense. The activity can continue until the wheel has been moved a total of 7 times to make all possible combinations.

Or simply give students a Word Builder and let them move it as they choose to create words and record them.
