Everything you need to make stand-up word building easels which are perfect for literacy centers. The easels (copied on cardstock) will stand up on student desks so letter cards are easy to see and move around. The letter cards can be added, changed, or rearranged as new words are built.
Six full color themes: polar bears/caps, squirrel/mugs, skier/snowflakes, snowman/mittens, moose/trees, penguin/igloo.
Each set contains an easel and 36 letter cards (all consonants and triple vowels).
Also included are six black and white student recording sheets and coordinating blank cards for Mystery Words. The teacher can write the letters for a mystery word on the blank cards and then make copies for the students. The students cut out the letter cards and then begin building small words before they figure out the mystery word that uses all the letters.
Eight Winter Mystery Words, and the smaller words with those letters, are included. (celebration, January, February, Christmas, decorations, New Years Eve, snowflake and traditions) The coordinating student recording sheets are also included. (I wanted to include Hannukah and Kwanzaa, but you can't make enough words with the letters in those words.)
