Great for back to school! Another long time favourite activity of mine. Making words is short, easy, and highly effective. Students move letters to create words, guided by the teacher. Each lesson has a focus, whether it be learning short A word families, or adding new sounds such as "sh" to the word families. By incorporating tactile learning to word building, students engage the brain in this effective literacy activity.
