literacy center sight word activities- put the sand in a pencil box for easy upkeep and clean up! NOTE: this only works with a thin layer of sand. If you put too much the writing doesn't show up. It went over okay with my kids, not their favorite
Phonics board linked to RWI. Children look at the picture say the word then use the letters to help sound out the word. I start this with just asking for the initial sound of a word (the other letters are already there) then build up to initial and end, then finally the whole word.
An interactive activity which involves students choose individual blocks with single letters on to build a word which is spelt out on a singular block. Great for practising phonics with younger pupils.
