Your class receives a Monster Mission task card. Your students must hunt and gather 10 eyeballs that have short vowel words on them. After collecting all of the eyeballs, your students must open a TOP SECRET envelope. Inside the envelope are 10 riddles your students must infer and solve.
The Monsters also leave 6 other games that are perfect for Word Work in Daily 5 or in a literacy center. The games included are:
*Eye Spy a Vowel: Students sort 20 eyeballs by the short vowel sound.
*Eye Spy Silly Sounds: Students sort 20 eyeballs by whether the word is a real or non-sense word.
*Eye Spy Monster Sounds: Students identify the missing initial, medial, and final sounds in 120 short vowel words.
*Eye Spy Silly Bingo: Students listen as the teacher says a non-sense word and read and locate that word on a bingo card.
*Nouns, Verbs, and Adjectives We Spy: Students sort words by nouns, nouns and verbs, or by nouns, verb, and adjectives.
*Eye Spy a Missing Word: Students read cloze sentences and find the word that completes the sentence and makes sense.
Students will LOVE solving the riddles and keeping the Monsters from getting THEIR eyeballs!
