- I use the picture word hunt activity during reading rotations with my beyond-level kinder readers. About half way through the year I will introduce it to the other students when they are more comfortable with letter sounds.
- I let the kids work with partners on this one. They chose a picture, circle items in the picture, and try to write the word in the letter box that it begins with (ex: pirate would go in the “p” box).
- This can be frustrating for students initially, but I found that they work much better with a partner! Most of my students are now partially spelling 10-15 words per picture!
