Secret Code Spelling

I've got a little Secret Code Spelling sheet here.  I have the students write each spelling word then draw the picture for each letter next to the word to make a code.  I use this as a Word Work center, but if you need a time filler - or something for your sub plans, this sheet could be put under the document camera and done whole group with the spelling list for the week.  For a variation, you can have the kids mix up their spelling words and write the code only, then give it to a classmate to "break the code".  Not matter how you do it, my students like this one:)  Click on the picture to go to my Teachers Pay Teachers store and download this for FREE.

  3. I love this idea!! What font did you use? I would like to go ahead and have the words in code (using the font) and have students crack the code. This is a great word work center!! Thanks for sharing! :)

  9. I found this through Pinterest last year. I used it last year, but I didn't start blogging until July. I just posted about it on my blog. My kids used your Secret Code Spelling to figure out their sight words and their spelling words. They loved it! I gave you credit and you can find my post at http://www.officiallyafirstgrader.blogspot.com/2013/01/daily-5-word-work.html. Thanks so much for sharing! It's a great activity for our Daily 5 Word Work time.
