This is an activity that gives kids the confidence to spell! Each slide shows an animal along with one or two letters missing from the word. Students use their knowledge of letter sounds, blends & digraphs to fill in the blank. The next slide is a self checking slide with the whole word spelled correctly.
Use these slides during whole group, small group, tutoring, stations and much more!
I have my students use whiteboards when doing this activity. They love when the get the word right! This is also a good way to informally assess students on phonics skills. I've been able to take quick anecdotal notes based on what they write down.
My ELL's especially love this activity!
