Students must read the word in each box to determine if it is a real CVC word, make-believe CVC word or sight word. Then, they must color the box to match the color key. A mystery picture develops...and then they must write a sentence about the picture they've discovered! This fun practice encourages blending of CVC words and students must comprehend the words in order to correctly color them and discover the pictures. Your students will love these pictures! This practice is great for a whole class lesson, small group instruction or a literacy center! Three blank mystery pictures and answer keys are included. Collect them all!
