Right before Christmas break, we started to learn about beginning blends.
I made 4 characters - Gretchen, Drake, Brad, and Crissy. Each table had to work together to write words for each beginning blend.
Side note about the activity - I loved seeing how the students decided who would write on the poster. Some tables figured out quickly a fair way to share the responsibility. Other tables, not so much. :)
Since we covered this topic right before break, I wanted to reinforce it when we return in January. I made a Winter Blends Literacy Centers that covers r-blends, l-blends and s-blends.
The first activity is similar to posters we completed in class. Students will sort the words onto the correct character.
There's also a Penguin Real or Nonsense Word Sort and an Igloo Word Match Up.
Since I recently reached 50 followers, I wanted to host my first giveaway. The winner will receive a copy of the Winter Blends Literacy Centers for free. The giveaway enters Sunday night 12/30 at midnight EST.
