My students love Mystery Messages and I love that they can use these to practice beginning sounds, capital letters, spacing, correct spelling, punctuation, and neat handwriting.
There are 24 messages included. Each one has a choice of 2 writing lines.

For each message students look at the picture, sound out the word and print the beginning sound. The letters will spell a mystery sentence that students then need to print.
I have included an 'I can' student instruction card for you to use if you plan to use these in a literacy center.
You can find this learning pack HERE at my TPT store.
