Word Transformer: Extending Student Learning
The Word Transformer game allows students to experience how R, H, and “silent” E to can transform words. As students read texts throughout the year, encourage them to look for examples of the bossy R, transformer h that creates digraphs with their unique sounds, and the silent E that makes the vowels say their names. You can create a special section of your word wall or literacy bulletin board for students to add the words to a class collection. Students can also record their examples in individual journals or notebooks.
