This activity was designed for use at the Pocket Chart Center. Students hide different 'gold coins' behind CVC word cards and take turns reading the cards. If they are able to read a CVC word correctly, they can check behind the card to see if there's a coin. If it's one of 'their' coins, they can keep it. If it is one of the other player's coins, they leave it where it is. The first player to find all of their coins is the winner.
This activity helps build word recognition skills and also allows them to practice blending their letter sounds together. Download the preview to see a little more about this packet. Enjoy!
