Long ago, Lakeshore had a product called “Word Detectives”. I loved using them with my beginning readers. Students loved the game-like practice. Word Detectives were very limited and had letter sounds which had not been introduced. In addition, Lakeshore discontinued the Word Detectives product. So, these inspired me to make my Word Sliders to match the order of letter sounds I teach in my Letters in the Zoo products. You don’t need other products to use these effectively. However, if you do buy other products, all Letters in the Zoo follow the scope and sequence of these word slider sets.
Word sliders are placed in a sleeve. Pull out each card slowly from the left revealing on letter at a time. Students decode and blend sounds as the word is revealed. Continue to slide card out of sleeve to reveal the picture. “Does the picture match the word you read??? Yes!”
I use these in:
• small groups
• whole class
• direct instruction in blending sounds
• phonemic awareness activities
• center game boards
• hallway (walking in line) practice
13 sets of words in all.
86 pages of 411 words with complete instructions. *some minor assembly required
