An interactive PowerPoint that will energise your classroom word building activities.
Are you looking for a fresh, new way to work on word building skills with your students? Are they bored with using letter tiles and worksheets to practise this skill? Then look no further!
This interactive PowerPoint includes 15 photographs that are hidden behind letters. The subjects of the photographs may not be what your students expect – and this adds another layer of intrigue to the activity!
Each slide focuses on one particular grapheme as the onset for a word. Students are presented with 8 choices of rime to build words onto the onset, but only 6 of the 8 rimes will build a real word. Every time the student successfully forms a word (by clicking on a rime), a portion of the photograph is revealed.
This sensational activity not only promotes word building skills, but it also encourages enthusiastic discussion about the gradually emerging image.
What Sounds are Explored?
This word building resource explores CVC words only.
