The Secret Words Game is a really popular activity that students LOVE!  Students receive word clues in the form of pictures.  They need to figure out the beginning sound of each picture to reveal the secret word.

In the example above, the first picture if of a "tiger" which begins with the letter t.  Once students figure out the first letter, they can then drag in the next letter.  Once students have placed all of the letters, the secret word is revealed to the student.
