Trash or Treasure is a literacy center I have used countless times for different skills in my classroom. Included in this download are directions for implementing the center and two recording sheets (for use with different levels in your classroom).
Students will practice decoding words and will record the words according to what kind it is--trash (nonsense word) or treasure (real word). The type of words is up to you. I have used this center for CVC, CVCE, CCVC, CCVCC, and CCVCE words. This could also be used to decode words with vowel pairs or other phonics skills you are working on in class.
Watch your kids learn to decode better when they practice with a partner or small group. They will soon learn to be better readers!
