This is designed for lower-elementary or special education classrooms. Included are 33 functional words that are used in many functional reading programs. I have laminated these worksheets and use these in centers. For the "build it" part, I have used scrabble tiles, plastic letters, dry erase markers, and stamps. You can choose what works in your classroom!
Words included are the following:
girls, elevator, telephone, gentlemen, escaltor, ladies, boys, men, women, open, closed, enter, do not enter, caution, hospital, stop, poison, exit, in, out, danger, bus, on, off, hot, cold, up, down, police, walk, push, pull, restrooms
