Winter Word Makers gets kids actively sounding out words and reading 15 wintery words!
Simply cut out and laminate each letter and picture. Each picture and all the letters to make it is called a word group.
Each word group is color coded so that their borders are all the same color, & the picture card has an arrow to remind kids where the first letter of the word goes.
Hand out a word group to each student and let them make words on the circle time rug or floor in your learning space.
Let your word maker spread out all of the word group cards, making sure all letters are right side up. (this in itself is a great activity for new letter learners)
Have each child sound the picture word out, placing the letter that makes the first sound directly to the right of the picture word. (the arrow will help remind them)
Now, using the letters that are left, have the child sound out the word and place the correct letters that make those sounds in the order that spells the word.
Now that they’ve spelled the word...let them go back, sound it out & READ it!
