Guess the Covered Word and Anticipation Guide Directions

This slideshow will load on my computer at home but not at school. It just spins for me. If it won't open for you, click the presentation link underneath the slideshow. You should be able to view it on SlideShare.

Guess the Covered Word is a fabulous way to teach decoding, words in context and synonyms. Plus, kids enjoy it, and it only takes a few minutes to 'play.'

Anticipation Guides prime students and help them predict what will happen in the text. If you create one with all true items, you could have students predict the sequence of events before reading and then read to determine the sequence of events.
