A great word building activity with elephants and peanuts where students make and read CVC words. Great for a carnival, jungle, or animal themed unit! Students practice reading and making these easy to decode words. In this activity students choose a elephant with a picture on and then spell the word with peanuts. This activity can be self checking by writing the word on the back of the elephant. Print this activity on card stock, laminate for durability and have students start practicing. This is a great activity for a learning station working with letters and words. Great for Kindergarten or lower level first graders. This activity comes with a worksheet which can be used for additional practice or assessment where students have to use a word from the word bank to write next to the correct picture.
