Phone Secret Code (freebie)

Here is another word work activity that I put together.  I used the keypad (found in the printable) and glued it to construction paper.  Then I cut out a cell phone shape.  I added a plain white paper screen.  I laminated the phones and the sight word cards.  I put a dot of Aleene's Tack It Over and Over glue onto the screen (optional).  The students pick a word card and put it on the screen like they are getting a text message.  They record the word and use the keypad to figure out the 'secret code' that matches the letters.  My kids really love the little flip phones!




Here's a picture of what mine look like.  I color coded my cards to match my phones so if a card gets lost I know where to put it. : )




Click the picture for the download.


If you would like the publisher version to be able to change the word cards as needed, please let me know.


Enjoy!
