In this independent center, children practice blending words in a word family and draw a picture to illustrate the word. You can easily check for comprehension in their reading by whether or not their pictures make sense with the words.
The Word Family "houses" for illustrations include words from the following word families: -at, -ip, -an, -it, -en, -in, -op, -ug, -ack, -ell
My students have done very well in this center, and have enjoyed the chance to be illustrators during reading centers! I hope your kids enjoy it too! :)
