A word wheel is a tool that children can manipulate to practice making words. It's very simple really: two circles are overlaid and attached with a brad. The top circle has a colorful, animated face (4 face designs per pack) in profile, with a cut out at the mouth and two letters next to the mouth (either before or after, depending on the direction of the face.) The bottom circle is white and has 8 word pairs. When you turn the bottom circle, a blended word appears in the mouth. It's a fun way to practice their sight words. I like these as a quiet wait-your-turn activity. Each set makes 18 word wheels, 5.25" circles, cardstock (Brads not included). ~ Sara
