Valentine's day is coming up in our first grade classroom! I created this center to get ready for this fun holiday and help our student get extra practice with our newly learned "magic e" skills. You will receive 18 real words (sight words) and 18 nonsense words (along with 18 blank cards for any words you might choose). Students will sort these words on to the sorting mats titled real and nonsense words. There is a recording page for students to choose six of their nonsense words. When the "magic e" is added to the end of the word students will be able to read and write their new real word! There is also an opportunity on the recording page to use one of the real words in a sentence.
