This is a Guess My Covered Word activity. Guess My Covered Word is a game played to increase skills in figuring out what to do when you come to a word you don't know. First the students read the sentence with the missing word. Then they try to guess what word could make sense in the sentence and the teacher writes it on the board. The next slide shows the first sound in the missing word. The class then can cross off words that don't have that beginning sound and make a few more guesses. The third slide for each sentence reveals the word. There are three sentences in this power point. I have usually found that three was enough since it takes a while to guess.
