Create a Rebus Reading Puzzle
The rebus is a form of written communication that precedes the first alphabets. There are many ways to make a rebus, but the most common form uses pictographs that sound like a word in place of a word or in combination with words to make messages. For example, think of pictures that can be used to make this message: eye can sea ewe. The following activity combines some of the most common sight words with busy hands for a winning combination of learning and creativity!
What You Need:
- Old catalogs or magazines with pictures that can be cut out
- Pencil or crayon
- Paper to write in-between words (lined paper especially made for beginning writers works well)
- Construction paper to use as background
