This Smart Board activity created by Heather Bates, SLP was designed to help reinforce spelling of common blends along with improving reasoning and vocabulary skills. There are a total of 61 slides in this activity. The first slide is for informational purposes. Slides 2-59 contain clues and pictures of a given word that is spelled with a beginning or ending blend (or both). The 1st slide in a pair provides 3 clues that you can reveal to see if your students can predict what the given animal is going to be. Slides 60-61 contain recording sheets so your students can write their responses. Your students will love the amazing graphics from Pink Cat Studio (www.pinkcatstudio.com) and borders from www.mycutegraphics.com. You will be amazed at how engaged your students will be and the active participation you will elicit from you students.
