What Are Phonics Picture Puzzles?
Phonics Picture Puzzles are a hands-on, interactive phonics tool that students can use to help master word families. These puzzles are the perfect tool to add to your existing Word Work area or to centers/stations. This resource includes 300 Phonics Picture Puzzles for all word families.
These self-checking puzzles help boost student confidence while easing your teacher mind. You’ll no longer feel like you have to be/should be constantly checking in with your students.
How Do We Use the Puzzles?
You can put these puzzles at your existing Word Work area or at a center/station.
Your students will:
•Piece together the puzzle.
•Write the word to match the picture with a dry erase marker.
•Self-check by flipping over the phonics cards to find the match.
•Extension: After self-checking, encourage students to build the word with magnetic letters, yarn, beans, etc. or have them write a sentence using the word on a white board.
