Crack the Code – Sight Words


This activity works on developing students ability to hear and identify initial sounds in words, as well as practice reading common sight words. 


To play, students say and hear the initial sound in each picture. They then place a magnetic letter or use a whiteboard marker to record the sound heard. Once all sounds have been detected, they can crack the code and work out the secret sight word!
