Zippin Down the Freebie Trail

{The blog hop is over so this item is no longer free
but it is available from my TeachersPayTeachers store!}

Welcome to your next freebie!  I hope you've gotten a lot of goodies along the way.  If you've missed any, you can go back to the beginning & start collecting again.  There are 27 participating blogs!  :)

The freebie I have for you is Easter themed but you could use it any time in the spring.  It's a Spill & Spell activity that you can use for Word Work, a writing center or reading skill practice.

Print the letter tiles, laminate them for longer use and put them in plastic eggs.  Mine are color coded for each of my 4 groups but otherwise the color doesn't matter.

{Store them as is when you're finished and you'll NEVER have to "set up" this activity again!!}  :)

It's differentiated into 4 levels so you can choose the one that's appropriate for your grade level...or do like I do and use all 4 sets to meet the needs of your diverse learners!  :)

{Levels 1 & 2 focus on CVC words and simple blending.}

Level 3 lets your students practice double vowels and silent e spelling patterns.  {When 2 vowels go walking, the first one does the talking!!}

Level 4 incorporates blends, longer words and gives them the option to make 2 words from each egg!

Click on any of the above pictures to get your download.  Then hop on down the bunny trail to your next freebie at SOS Supply.  Have a happy Easter!
