This activity is an activity for students to discover how words work, word patterns, and special phonetic rules. This activity can be used as a follow up to the Winter Mystery Words smartboard activity that is also in my store. You can also use it in a Literacy workstation or reading center. Students can work in cooperative learning groups or independently. A great lesson for a small guided reading group. A perfect addition to a Winter thematic unit.
