Build a Word Rose is an activity or game to practice writing and reading words with the long o sound spelled with the o-consonant-e spelling pattern. Students are asked to classify the words as real or nonsense words. My students have benefited from this a great deal. Most words are formed by consonant-o-consonant-e. Chr, st, and gn are also included to add more critical thinking into the game. These blends and digraph are only three out of the nine letter choices for the beginning sounds. Enjoy!
