Yucky Word Building Center
I was typing this post last night, when all of the sudden I started feeling very yucky. I am feeling a little better but not much. Any way, when teaching these sounds, I have always told my students that sometimes these four vowel digraphs (ou, ew, oo, and ue) say "EWWWW," like when you see something really gross. So to help them remember this, I made this Yucky Word Building spelling Center. The teacher would first cut out the pictures and put them in an empty tissue box. In the center students use boogies and tissues (the pictures the teacher cut out) from the box to build words. If you click on the image above, you can download the whole center. I suggest printing it on card stock so it will hold up better.
I also made a contractions spelling center to go with Green Eggs and Ham for our Dr. Seuss unit next week. Someone else posted something similar, but I cannot remember or find who that was. I want to give credit to the person that inspired me when I post it. If you know who I am talking about, please tell me! :)
