Do you want your students to practice their high frequency words? Do they need a little extra practice with initial sounds? How about an activity that does both and that your students will love?!
Print laminate and cut out the mystery word cards and have students lay out refrigerator magnet letters (or you can have students use dry erase markers!) that correspond with the initial sound of each picture on the card. Once all of the letters are laid out students will be able to read the mystery word (high frequency word).
The words included correspond to the Journeys ELA program, the frames are color coded to match the Unit in which they appear in the program.
