Spell Words from Magazine Cutouts - Phonics

Here is a fun and free phonics activity to help little ones learn to read.

Cut out photos of three-letter, short-vowel words such as pan, cup, bed, hat, dog, and cat from magazines. I did this step on my own before getting my daughter involved because I wanted to ensure that the words were all short vowel words.

Get out the letters and try to spell the word.

Staple several sheets of paper folded in half to make a book. Paste the magazine pictures into the book and try to remember how to spell the words. Then write the words below the pictures.
