These interactive Riddle booklets make reading engaging and FUN!
This pack contains six different riddle booklets.
Each booklet practices 4 different words for each initial blend.

Students create the booklets with pouches by folding a paper in half twice and gluing along the bottom. (See preview)

Then, they find the correct answer card for each riddle and insert into the pouch.

Choose from three different levels of answer cards:

1. Students also practice proper sentence formation by writing a sentence on each answer card.
2. Use phonics codes to spell out each word, with pictures to assist.
3. Decode the words with no picture clues.

I've also included a chart poster of the phonics codes to use for more assistance if needed, or to use in other ways for your literacy centers!

(If you have not used my phonics codes sets before, it simply means that each letter sound is represented my a small picture. Students must decode the first sound of each picture to decode their word. You can see a picture of the answer card in the thumbnails for this product.)

Once students have assembled their book with answer cards inserted into the correct pouch - the fun begins!

Students partner up to read and solve each riddle, pulling out the answer card to see if they are correct. This involves multiple readings of all the words and clues - excellent practice in an engaging format!

Booklets can also be sent home for further practice, or used for a fun assessment tool after practice.
