This PRINTABLE set of 20 cards gives students a fun and engaging way to learn all about putting letters together to make 3 letter words. Each card has a picture and is divided into three pieces. Each puzzle piece has one of the three letters that spell the name of the picture on the card. The teacher simply copies and cuts the pieces on the lines making the 3 piece puzzles. Mix them all up and the kids will put the puzzle back together by spelling the 3 letter words. All cards have a color coded border helping struggling students to put the words together. I suggest laminating so that these can be used all year long in small group, partner group, or independent practice. Created for Grades Pre-K - 2 depending on the level of the student. Great for introductory phonics or for older primary students that need remediation or a little more practice spelling 3 letter words. I have also created 4 letter word puzzles for the more advanced student if interested. Answer key for students is included.
