Hidden Words and Giveaway


Whew! I can't believe how long this took to make. Last week I gave my students the word "caterpillar" and asked them to find as many hidden words as they could. They LOVVVVVED this. I decided I needed to milk the enthusiasm for this fun activity. I made 50 hidden word sheets and an answer key. To make this more challenging for my higher learners, I decided to not give them the word and they had to see if they could figure out what the big word is. This is similar to Patricia Cunningham's "Making Words" but it's an independent activity (great for homework, morning work, and literacy centers). What I love most is that it's differentiated and I don't need to find and make 4 different worksheet copies to accommodate all my learners for homework. I'm going to send one of these home each Thursday for homework (as per student requests!). If you're interested you can get it here for only $3.00


Do you want to win it?? All you have to do is "like" me on Facebook then comment here and on my FB page. I don't want to be totally embarrassed and not have anybody "like" me ;D I'll announce a winner on Tuesday evening.
