These task cards are easy to use and fun for students! Wander Words is an activity that forces students to use context clues to learn new vocabulary - in this case, transition words and phrases. Each word has a sentence clue and a word. Students need to trace the path through the puzzle to decode the word. The letters are in order, but may travel horizontally or vertically in any direction! Students love the challenge, and you will love the way the focus on the words and phrases, learning them without even trying! This is my students' new favorite word learning game!

This set of task cards is self-checking with QR codes! If you would prefer the non-QR code version, you can download it for FREE on my blog! While you're there, be sure to follow me so you can access the exclusive FREEBIES that I only post on the blog.
