Calling all word detectives! These Word Detective themed Phonics and Reading Strategies posters with goal cards will surely motivate your students during your Word Study and Spelling routines.
These Word Detectives phonics anchor charts provide visual reminders that can be hung in your classroom all year long, or if you do not wish to print them, they can simply be projected onto your Smart Board/Promethean to serve as an anchor chart during your mini-lessons and as spiral review.
I have found it extremely helpful to assign my differentiated Word Study Groups a Word Study goal using the editable badge and hand lens graphics that are also included in this resource.
Your students will proudly collect their goal cards as evidence of their learning throughout the year. They will also serve as a reminder to your students to continue using that phonics skill to decode unfamiliar words as they continue to grow as readers. They can also be used as brag tags!
Assigning Phonics/Word Study goals is also an effective teaching strategy to help your students take ownership of their learning.
