This activity is probably one of THE coolest word work activities EVER!!! I have written word family words (both long and short vowels) BACKWARDS and REVERSED on cards. Kids use white paper to trace over the words with pencil. After they press the silly putty onto the word, they will slowly lift the putty from the paper. (This is where the magic begins.) When the kids turn it around, they will see the word written correctly!! From there, students can read the words while stretching out the sounds (with their mouths and hands pulling the silly putty).
I have been using this activitiy for years and each group who used it LOVED it.
This word work activity can be used in centers, small group (teacher) instruction, RTI GROUPS, and/or the Daily Five.
Look for other Silly Putty Word Work Packets (8 total) in my store.
