Tap the top of the page to watch the "The Magic of Words!" appear before your eyes! Then, guide students to make words with the short i. Students can have the same page as seen on the Smart Board or use their whiteboards to practice making short i words. Words can be made by sliding letters into the yellow oval area. Then, words that are made can be recorded on the boxes above. The magic occurs when you change one word into a new word. Such as changing the word lip to lick to pick, etc. You can even use magic wands and magical words..."abracadabra alakazam change the word lip to the word lick!" Students will love the excitement that goes along with making and changing words and at the same time practicing the short i!
