What do you do when your students want to play with those fidget spinners? LET THEM!
These spinner activities use a fidget spinner as a motivational tool while your students practise reading their letter names, letter sounds, blends, digraphs and CVC words. 

This pack includes detailed teacher notes and score sheets. You will need an actual fidget spinner to place on the worksheets as a timer - a full-sized spinner template can be found on each sheet to set the spinner on. (Student gets to spin it!)
