What educators are saying

This is one of the first resources I pull when my children begin sounding out/reading CVC words. They love that they have to decode first and then do the work of sounding it out. Such a great idea!
Used this activity for early finishers. Students loved being able to solve the puzzle and I loved the students using different phonics skills.


This is one of my favorite centers for students to practice beginning sounds, simple sight words, CVC words and sentence structure. Students will love getting their detective on and working out the mystery sentences. To complete the activity, students use their early phonetic skills to write the beginning sound of each picture using whiteboard marker. They can then copy the sentence onto the template provided or into their books while adding the correct punctuation. There are 24 different boards included and an answer key for easy marking and self-checking.

Includes both a USA and AUS/UK version.
