My children love to play "Guess the Covered Word"! Great transition activity! This product includes 32 different "Guess the Covered Word" activities for the Smartboard that can be used throughout the school year. The activities increase in length and difficulty as the year progresses.
Guess the Covered Word is a part of the Four-Blocks Literacy Model and is a reading cross-checking strategy that combines context clues, word analysis skills, and phonics to help students decode unknown words.
The activities teach the children to ask some basic questions when they approach new words. What words make sense in the sentence? How long is the word? How does the word begin or end? What are the other letters in the word?
