This is a super idea for a center, homework activity, or partner project. It can easily be adapted to different skill levels and age groups.

Word Bag
Put flash cards with vocabulary words, sight words, spelling words, etc. in a zip bag. Add different multi-sensory materials similar to those below. Children can take the bag and choose any material they like to reproduce the words.

     *Wikki sticks
     *magnetic letters
     *colored pencils for rainbow words
     *alphabet stickers
     *alphabet blocks
     *dry erase board
     *play dough

Mystery Word 
Choose a word each day as a “mystery word." Write it on the board and then tape a sheet of paper over it so the children have to “take a peek” as they enter the classroom. At morning meeting discuss the meaning of the word. Can they dramatize the word? Can they use it in sentences?
