Thank you, Jack!

Jack Berckemeyer taught us this at a NELMS conference.    Kate quickly made up a bunch of sets for both of our classrooms. 

Each group of students gets a set of letter cards. B, D, F, O, P, R, A, S, T, L, H, N; ambiguous M/E/W ; an ambiguous U/C  (If the students figure out that they can flip an ‘ambiguous letter card’ to create a new letter, they may.)  Then you give the students a task, and they get started.

What a great way to review terms for a test, generate word banks, practice with morphemes, etc.!
