Product Description
Introduce and review short 3-letter words with these fun four-piece puzzles! Using these puzzles will help you clearly understand your students’ knowledge of reading and spelling and will help you tailor your instruction to more specifically meet individual needs. We have found these to be very helpful as RTI activities in our classrooms.

These puzzles, aligned with Common Core standards, will help your students easily spell and decode words, process words automatically and rapidly, examine patterns in words, increase vocabulary, and improve reading fluency with explicit instruction and practice! They will help your students better understand how meaning, sound, and spelling work together in written language.

All of the words used in this product have three letters and one syllable; however, they address a variety of structural and phonetic analysis skills.

They include the CVC pattern (bat), vowel digraphs (owl), V-C-silent e (axe), vowel diphthongs (boy), r-controlled vowels (car), two vowels together with the first one long and the second one silent (tie), double vowels (bee), vowel followed by the same two consonants (egg), y as a vowel (cry), and exceptions (two). We’ve even included a list of phonics rules reminders for you.

We recommend printing these cards on cardstock and laminating them for endurance. We find it much easier to laminate the assembled puzzles before cutting apart the pieces.

We have included a large number of words here so that you will have a comprehensive bank of choices. We like having a thorough resource that we can pull from over and over again. We have made subsets of these cards and stored them in separate bags. This provides enough for several small groups to each use a set simultaneously, and it allows us to easily rotate and jigsaw (no pun intended) the activities we do with the cards.

This product is helpful for homework practice, center activities, and small-group assignments. These puzzles are excellent for special education and ESL students and provide excellent repetition and visual cues.

For advanced students, we assign additional activities such as alphabetizing the words, defining them using the dictionary, or writing the guide words on the dictionary page where the word is found. Students also use the words provided to create sentences, stories, or poems.

You will be able to use these cards in so many ways!
