Spin a Word

I've been working to create some Word Work activities that can be used for each short vowel as it is taught (for a little consistancy during Daily 5).  Here's a little activity I call "Spin a Word."  The kids will use a paper clip and pencil to spin the beginning sound and ending sound.  The middle sound will depend on which vowel I'm teaching. 

I made a couple of different versions.  The first one is generic.  After laminating the spinner sheet, you can write in your own vowel sound.  I also made some with the vowel already on the page.  I tried to pick beginning/ending sounds that were a little more specific to actual word families.

What a fantastic idea! I love it! Your blog has some great ideas. After seeing all the wonderful resources out there, I have started a blog myself (I'm definitely still in the learning phase!). Maybe you can visit me?
