In this activity students use the letters from (example) "Happy Halloween" to create new words. There are columns for 2 letter words, 3 letter words, 4 letter words, 5 letter words, 6 letter words, and 7 or more letter words. Students are encouraged to cut out the letters and use as a manipulative to help find words. Students often use a dictionary if they are not sure of spelling or if it is actually a word.
Holiday word builders includes:
Happy New Year
