Mystery Pictures – Dr Seuss Edition – Word Families is designed to help students learn how to read and identify words in a word family in a fun activity.

For beginning students: I print out a mystery picture in color and the corresponding black & white chart. Sometimes I print out an extra color picture for me to reference. I cut apart the color picture into the 100 squares. I start with one line at a time. I hold up a square and ask the student to read it and give prompts if necessary. Once it’s read, the student glues it onto the black and white chart. This is a great way to have students learn to read the words, but they may have difficulty with fine motor skills and being able to use the color key.

Tasks can be for individual or small group work.

Mystery Picture 1 – The Cat’s Hat
Mystery Picture 2 – Cat in the Hat
Mystery Picture 3 – Lorax
Mystery Picture 4 – Grinch
Mystery Picture 5 – Green Eggs & Ham
Mystery Picture 6 – READ
Mystery Picture 7 – Thing 1 or 2
Mystery Picture 8 – Truffulla Trees

Each picture has its own code page and Black & White chart.
