Students read the words and color in the ones that are in the targeted phonics pattern only to get through the treasure hunt.
We need to have several activities for our students to practice the skills we are teaching. Sound hunts are a fun way for your students to practice their phonics patterns.
Teacher Tip: Perfect for homework, centers, or to even leave with a sub. Sometimes I have my students color the words that don’t belong another color too!
