Stretchy the Word Snake!

I have lovvvveeed seeing all of the great find from Target on the BLOGS this summer! I found the cutest pencil boxes today!!!!

They came in lots of CUTE colors and patterns for only 69 cents!
Place the cards inside the pencil box.

Then have the students SLOWLY pull open the box and sound out the letters they see.

When they get to the last letter there is a picture for them to self correct their reading!!!
