Are your students working on reading short a CVC words? Want a fun center activity that will help them practice?
This Pack Includes:
*directions for set-up/suggested uses
*20 short a puzzles
*1 blank puzzle (to make add’l puzzles)
*b&w printable for follow-up/assessment of mastery
*short a puzzle partner or homework activity
Supports & Aligns With Common Core Standard:
I like to make my pieces 'self-correcting' by placing stickers/dots on the back side of the matching pairs. After students match their puzzles, they flip them over to see if all the matches are correct. If not, they go back and fix the mistakes!
Some suggested uses include:
*Use in a center and have the b&w printable available as a follow-up activity
*Use for small group instruction & remediation
*pair-up game- give each student one half of puzzle- they have to find the matching piece and then complete the printable together- great for beginning year too!
*Pair students up to play and then have them make a puzzle of their own using the printable provided. Display puzzles on a bulletin board or make into a class book!
*Use for RTI; the b&w printable can serve as your proof of assessment
*Use for ‘early finishers’ (specifics in the pack)
*Use for a ‘take-home’ activity (specifics in the pack)
