It's time for some detective work!
Do you students love 'reading the room?'
Are you working on sight words?
Do you think your students would love being word detectives?
This little to no prep center will have your kids up and solving sight word mysteries! They will gather letters around the room and then solve the 'mystery word' by putting the letters in order to form a sight word!
They can then practice writing it and using it in a sentence on the recording sheet!
Once you teach your students how to do this center, it will practically 'run itself' all year long!
There are 73 words included in this pack from the Dolch Pre-Primer, Primer and First Grade word lists.
There are 20 blank letter cards included for you to edit to make additional words (2-6 letters long). Print as many sets as you need to make as many more words as you need!
(This file is zipped- once you unzip the file (extract files) you can edit using Power Point [change the font, size, color, location, etc]).
Link to the font used in the pack is provided. It is free to download and use for personal use so the cards you make will match the cards provided in the pack!
